"The second wine of La Gaffeliere, the 2019 Clos La Gaffeliere has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and bags of character all its own, featuring notes of redcurrant jelly, raspberry pie, Black Forest cake and underbrush with wafts of bouquet garni and cracked black pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers plenty of juicy red and black fruits with lovely herbal sparks and an approachable texture of rounded tannins, finishing with enticing freshness." 90-92 The Wine Advocate.
Chateau La Gaffeliere estate comprises 38 hectares, of which 22 hectares of 1st Grand Cru Classé, on clayey foothills. Plantings are 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc.
Born in 1985, Clos La Gaffelière has his own vat room and cellars. Ageing is done, in large part, in 1 and 2 years old barrels. The blend is usually a large majority of Merlot (up to 90%) and the rest of Cabernet Franc, vinified and aged with just as much care as the lots making up the first wine by the same team as Chateau La Gaffeliere.
