A profound 1st Classified Growth of Saint-Emilion

In 2016, 38 hectares of the 1st Classified Growth of Saint-Emilion, Château La Gaffelière, were harvested between the 29th of September and 21st of October during an exceptional Indian summer. The 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc - which make up this year’s blend - have undergone vinification even more adapted and precise, thanks to the new La Gaffelière vat, which makes it possible to manage the lots with more selections, all in a real "tailor-made" style.

Château La Gaffelière 2016 boasts a very dark colour, inky with blue highlights. This wine displays remarkable class and a disconcerting aromatic and gustatory depth. Pure and tense from the olfactory attack, the nose expresses aromatic brilliance with freshly picked black fruits. Stirring reveals a very aromatic freshness. The entry is dynamic, the mid-palate express a very refined tannic structure, which is delicate, so fine in fact that we forget the presence of tannins. The wine is dense, very dense but without giving up its elegance. This is an aesthetic wine: truly 3-dimensional. 



Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 La Gaffeliere has a reserved bouquet at first, one that gradually unfurls with quite intense black cherry and sloes, yet there seems to be a welcome restraint, a Saint Emilion that knows how important it was to not push the fruit too much. The palate is medium-bodied with very smooth and rounded tannin. The acidity here is nicely judged, and it feels very cohesive, with dark berry fruit mixed with a little cola and plenty of black pepper towards the satisfying finish. Maybe it would benefit from more on the aftertaste, but otherwise this is an excellent La Gaffelière, a château that is now beginning to deliver the goods.
