With its medium ruby color and its tightly knit, light-bodied, elegant style, it is easy to pass over La Gaffeliere in favor of some of the more forceful, powerful St.-Emilion offerings. That would be a mistake as this property can turn out exceptionally elegant wines. I am not convinced 1993 will be one of those wines, although it reveals moderate quantities of curranty and cherry fruit accompanied by a touch of smoky new oak. However, the tannin is noticeably hard and dominates the wine's flavor and finish. Time will tell. It will be interesting to see how this wine tastes after it has been fined and/or filtered.
