La Gaffeliere

Château La Gaffelière is a Saint-Émilion Premiers Grands Cru Classé (B). The estate is located west of Château Pavie, just south of the town of Saint-Émilion. The estate sits on the ruins of a Gallo-Roman villa named "Le Palat", and later a 17th-century leper colony. The word "gaffet" translates to leper. In the late 1800s the original extensive estate (much like others such as the Léoville estate) was divided into what became Château Canon-la-Gaffelière, and an estate first called Château Gaffelière-Naudes (“Naudes” was dropped in 1963). La Gaffelière has belonged to the Malet-Roquefort family for more than three centuries! The vineyard area extends to 22 hectares, with Merlot accounting for 80% (the remainder Cabernet Franc). Around 10,000 cases of the Grand Vin are produced, and the second wine is named Clos La Gaffelière.

La Gaffeliere 2005 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

The finest La Gaffeliere I have ever tasted, the prodigious 2005 boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a flamboyant bouquet of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, blackberries, smoked meats, incense, and Asian spice. Fabulously deep and full-bodied as well as ethereal and exceptionally elegant for its explosive richness and intensity, its lightness of being reflects the vineyard’s sensational terroir. This succulent beauty appears to be approachable, but that belies some significant tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2030+.

95-97 Structured, with the ripe fruits finely organized. The wine has weight, and dusty tannins, very perfumed in character. This is a beautiful wine that shows elegance as well as power.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous (94-97)

The 2015 La Gaffelière is a brilliant wine. Soaring, intense aromatics make a strong first impression. Precise and beautifully sculpted throughout, the 2015 bristles with energy. The flavors show good brightness, while the tannins are exceptionally polished. Freshly cut flowers, mint, espresso, sweet red plums and anise grace the palate in an utterly exquisite wine built on finesse, precision and nuance. The 2015 La Gaffelière is an exceptional wine by any measure. The 70% Merlot/30% Cabernet Franc works very well. Stéphane Derenoncourt and Simon Blanchard are the consulting winmakers. Tasted two times.

This is a firmly structured wine, its tannins dominating the potential of the ripe fruit. It will take many years to develop into the impressive wine that it is sure to become.

Wine Enthusiast (95-97)

95–97. Barrel Sample. This estate has made a dark, dense wine in this vintage. That density is penetrated by the freshness of the black currant fruits. The result is a wine that is powered both by structure and crisp fruit. There is definitely plenty of aging potential here.

La Gaffeliere 2020 (6x75cl)

Vinous (NM) (96-98)

The 2020 La Gaffelière has an intriguing, complex nose, a mélange of red and black fruit, cigar box, undergrowth and mint, quite mercurial in the glass as it opens with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins, a beautiful seam of acidity and perhaps the most satin-like texture I have encountered on a young La Gaffelière. It sashays to a harmonious and precise finish and lingers with wonderful mineralité. This is a magnificent prospect.
