1998 La Gaffeliere

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 90.5 points



Elegant and soft, with admirable restraint as well as subtlety, yet surprising richness and seductiveness, the 1998 offers pure notes of strawberries and black cherries gently infused with high quality toasty oak. Round, medium-bodied, and well-balanced, it can be drunk now and over the next 12-14 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2001



A big, Porty, raisiny wine. Very ripe plum and hints of mineral and spice on the nose. Full-bodied, thick and rich, with big, silky tannins. Slightly hot finish. Rather rustic but impressive. Best after 2006. 6,665 cases made. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2001

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.
