Château La Gaffelière 2012

Bordeaux - Saint-Emilion - Red - 14° Château La Gaffelière Château La Gaffelière 2012 1117/12
  • Parker : 91+
  • J. Robinson : 16
At first, the taste of black fruits surprises in this vintage, with a fresher hint. The new plots of cabernet francs (20%) are probably the explanation. On the palate of château La Gaffeliere 2012, we find a nice knit, silky, really on velvelt. Ageing is still on, however, a wine with a great finesse is already born, with power as the best vintages of this first classified growth of Saint-Emilion.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Very elegant kirsch liqueur-like notes mixed with licorice, spice and earth jump from the glass of this famous St.-Emilion, long-owned by the Malet Roquefort family. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc (14% alcohol), this has slightly more acidity and structure than some St.-Emilions. The limestone-dominated terroir comes through in the wine's striking and very powerful minerality. It is medium-bodied, elegant, tightly knit and probably in need of 2-4 years of bottle age. It should drink well for the following 15 years.;2017 - 2032
