Château La Gaffelière

Château La Gaffelière seems emerging from History. Through the presence of its vines since the Gallo-Roman era, its name dragged from the leprous hospital or « gaffet » in the mediaeval epoch, and the owners grand genealogy ; the Malet Roquefort family, living for 4 centuries in Saint-Emilion, is...

Château la Gaffelière Saint Émilion Premier Grand Cru... 2010

Well we have the Bordeaux lovers some talk about vintage 2009 & 2010. Is think it is well known that this is one of the finest years in Bordeaux. Many sweet Christmas fruitcake notes intermixed with black cherries, black currants, licorice and incense jump from the glass of this dense purple-colored wine. Medium to full bodied with surprisingly soft, round tannins and a nice mid palate, the 2009 and 2010 are the reference of Chateau La Gaffeliere that of the elegant and lively style of the property. This beauty can be drunk early but comfortable stay until 2047 in the cellar. Important to mention is that we have this wine to buy direct (may) at Chateau La Gaffeliere so the wine comes from the cellars conditioned directly to our warehouse (not parties that have wandered the world in questionable environments which unfortunately happens too often this type of wines).

Château la Gaffelière 2010

The wine of Château La Gaffelière is located in the Saint-Emilion appellation. A permanent presence there, for four centuries, due to the Malet Roquefort family of the oldest currently in Saint-Emilion. This gives it undoubtedly an experience that leverages current owner to renovate but also continue the tradition by which the renowned La Gaffelière has crossed borders. The richness of the soil and the meticulous work of men, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, confirm its status as Premier Grand Cru Classé.

I like to surprise my family with this wine.
Has a strong colour. In my opinion, the most noticeable smell is raspberry. Fleshy, smoothy.
We had it with a deer stew.

I opened the bottle for my best friend.
It had a deep colour at first sight. Smells of wood. Softer than 2016.
I enjoyed it with a beef dish.
