"A dark, voluptuous beauty, the 2014 La Gaffelière is incredibly harmonious for such a young wine. Red currant, pomegranate, spice, wild flowers and hard candy jump from the glass in an exuberant, racy St.-Emilion endowed with tons of finesse and nuance. All the elements fall into place in an effortless, gracious wine that should drink well for many years. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The 2014 spent 25-30 days on the skins, while malolactic fermentation took place partly in tank and partly in barrique. Stéphane Derenoncourt and Simon Blanchard are the consulting oenologists. Tasted two times."

The Château la Gaffelière 2014 is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The nose feels a little overripe and smudged, not really the traditional La Gaffelière style. The palate is better with grainy tannin, good depth of fruit and a rather conservative but nicely focused finish. Apparently there will be around 40% new oak on the final blend, which would make it a more balanced wine. Let's see. eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

This is really complex and minerally with so much going on. Full, tight and precise. One of the best ever from here. All the hard work in reorganizing the vineyard is paying off. James Suckling. April, 2015.

Features a solid core of dark, ripe plum, fig and blackberry fruit, complemented by lovely minerality through the finish. Delivers some deft toast, letting the fruit and minerality take the lead. Things are on the upswing here.—J.M. Wine Spectator, April 2015.
