La Gaffelière is planted to 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the wine is typically aged for 12-15 months in new oak. Robert Parker reports: 'Exhibiting a style of its own, La Gaffelière will surprise tasters used to the New Wave flamboyant St.-Emilions, but it is seductive in its own way with its sensual elegance and perfumed aromas.' A very pretty wine indeed, we love the traditional style which tastes polished and pure and utterly sophisticated.

Wine EnthusiastFrom its privileged position on the sweep of vines leading up to the medieveal city of Saint-Émilion, this estate has made an impressive wine in this vintage. It is rich and concentrated both in its structure and its black fruits. Complex, dark and dense, it can age for many years.

Wine SpectatorEnticing warm plum, fig and blackberry compote notes roll through, inlaid with singed alder and tobacco accents. There's a light tug of warm cast iron and another wave of fruit after that, all supported by well-buried chalky minerality. This is a very strong showing and has put on some weight since the barrel tasting.

Wine AdvocateMedium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 La Gaffeliere has a slightly reticent, broody nose of black truffles, fertile loam and mossy bark over a core of warm plums, crushed black berries and black cherries plus a touch of iron ore. Medium to full-bodied with firm and very finely grained tannins with layers of softly spoken fruit and great freshness, it finishes long.
