La Gaffeliere 2014

La Gaffeliere

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 94.0

Straddling the fine line between tradition and modernity, Château La Gaffelière have created an excellent wine that is emblematic of the Saint-Émilion appellation. The château exists in a unique location on the slopes nestled between Pavie and Ausone on an ancient site that was once thought to have been a Roman estate. The 22-hectare vineyard is grown on three terroirs that comprise a limestone plateau and siliceous soil, and is planted with Merlot (c.70%) and Cabernet Franc (c.30%). The end result? A distinctive, characterful wine that is both racy and silky.

The 2014 Château La Gaffelière is also a beautiful wine that’s more supple, elegant and classic in style than the more concentrated 2015. Pure, seamless, and beautifully textured, this medium to full-bodied 2014 gives up impressive intensity and depth in its ripe blackcurrant, black cherries, spring flowers and mineral aromas and flavors. I love its complexity and balanced, lengthy, classic style, and it should drink handsomely for 10-15+ years.

The 2014 La Gaffeliere appears to have improved since its showing in barrel (I did hint at this at the time). The nose is perfumed and slightly floral, certainly well defined with neatly integrated oak, dark fruit emerging with aeration in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly edgy, chalky tannin on the entry, shrouded by plenty of dusky black fruit and a potent, graphite-tinged finish. This is one to watch.
