This is a quintessentially elegant wine, with charm, sweet fruit, and a velvety texture. Tannin in the finish suggests it will last longer than expected. The color is a deep ruby, and the nose offers up sweet black cherries intermixed with a peppery, mineral character, subtle new oak, and well-integrated acidity and tannin. The finish is long and pure. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2012.|| Wine Advocate.April, 1999

Fresh and vivacious, with chocolate, cherry and raspberry aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium, fruity finish. Needs a bit more fruit concentration to be outstanding, but well done. Best after 1999. 6,000 cases made. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1999

A dynastic winery owned by Comte Leo de Malet Roquefort’s family since the 1400s, La Gaffelière is one of France’s most historical Châteaux. With a total of 22 hectares under vine, the estate lies adjacent to Ausone, Château Pavie, Château Belair and Château Magdelaine, producing highly finessed St Emilion. The 2006, 2009 and 2010 vintages were particularly successful.
