CHATEAU LA GAFFELIERE - SAINT EMILION - 2011

Chateau La Gaffeliere is one of the oldest properties in the appellation, and is one of Saint Emilion's great classics. The south-facing vines are planted on clay-limestone soil and are an average of 40 years old. La Gaffeliere regained its rank of premier cru classe in 1985. The 18-hectare Saint Emilion vineyard of Chateau La Gaffeliere is planted to 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. This is quite different than what you find as recently as the mid 1990’s. In those days, the Merlot was only 65% and there was also 10% of the vines devoted to Cabernet Sauvignon. Those vines have since been ripped out and replaced.

Tasting Notes
The 2011 performed slightly differently in multiple tastings, but overall, it appears to be an outstanding, elegant, restrained, somewhat austere, but impressively built wine. The final blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc produced nearly 5,000 cases from their 42+ acre vineyard. The wine exhibits lots of earthy, balsam, resiny notes interwoven with red and black currants, cedar and underbrush. This elegant, dense, medium to full-bodied St.-Emilion should drink nicely for 15-20 years.
