The 2015 La Gaffelière is a wine of total finesse. Much less obvious and more than Saint-Émilions in this vintage, La Gaffelière makes its case on harmony and grace above all else 2015 striking freshness and aromatic presence. The flavours are bright and nuanced to the core, with plenty of red cherries, espresso and floral notes. But back to the basics. In 2015 La Gaffelière is a wine that stands out because of its impeccable balance and sense of proportion. I loved it. Tasted two times."  by Antonio Galloni

Medium to deep garnet-purple coloured, the 2015 La Gaffeliere has a slightly reticent, broody nose of black truffles, fertile loam and mossy bark over a core of warm plums, crushed blackberries and black cherries plus a touch of iron ore. Medium to full-bodied with firm and very finely grained tannins with layers of softly spoken fruit and great freshness, it finishes long." by Monica Larner

"Enticing warm plum, fig and blackberry compote notes roll through, inlaid with singed alder and tobacco accents. There's a light tug of warm cast iron and another wave of fruit after that, all supported by well-buried chalky minerality. This is a very strong showing and has put on some weight since the barrel tasting. Best from 2020 through 2040. 6,665 cases made." by James Molesworth

A silky and pretty wine with plum and berry aromas and flavours. Full body, refined and silky. Super refined tannins. Goes on for minutes.

A well made, approachable St Emilion red with medium body and ripe plummy flavours. A delicious red that will be enjoyable young and should age well over the next 7-10 years.
