WHAT A DEAL!!...YET ANOTHER SUPERB "SECOND LABEL" THAT OF CHATEAU LA GAFFELIERE, GRAND CRU SAINT-EMILION.

85% MERLOT & 15% CABERNET FRANC

"Straightforward, with cherry and plum preserve notes underscored by a red licorice edge. A lightly toasted vanilla accent hangs on the finish. Drink now through 2020. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 4,000 cases made." (WS)

"This is wound up nicely with brambly, fresh red and dark berries, as well as light mocha and Middle Eastern spices. The palate has punchy flavors delivered in suave, fine tannins and attractive full body. Drink or hold." (JS)

"The second wine of La Gaffelière is the 2015 Clos La Gaffelière and this cuvee is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. This medium-bodied, elegant Saint-Emilion offers perfumed notes of black raspberries, currants, spice cake and lots of sandy/loamy soil-like nuances. Like all the wines here, the winemaking is impeccable and it?s balanced, pure and fresh. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years." (JD)
