Reviews

A very precise and curated wine with ultra-fine tannins that run the length of the wine. Medium body. Dark berry and dark chocolate flavors and a creamy finish. Classy. ~94-95 James Suckling

A notable success in this vintage, the 2021 La Gaffelière offers up aromas of sweet cherries and berries mingled with notions of licorice, loamy soil, and spices. Medium to full-bodied, seamless, and enveloping, it's supple and charming, with a fleshy core of fruit, lively acids, and ripe, powdery tannins, concluding with impressive persistence. Tasted four times, twice at the château. ~92-94 WA

The 2021 La Gaffelière was picked from September 22 to October 15, and matured in 60% French new oak. There is a healthy 42% Cabernet Franc here. The nose is quite open with black cherry, blueberry, and touches of violet and peony; the oak is nicely integrated. In the mouth, this is medium-bodied with fine delineation, good focus, and real midpalate weight. Conveying good intensity and vibrancy, this continues a strong run for this Saint-Emilion estate. ~94-96 Neal Martin, Vinous Media

The 2021 La Gaffelière is a wine of extraordinary finesse and class. Time in the glass brings out striking depth and complexity. The aromatics alone are beguiling but everything about the 2021 speaks to elegance. Crushed red berry fruit, rose petals, blood orange, mint, and saline notes punctuate the finish. ~95-97 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
