External Reviews for Clos la Gaffelière Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru
A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 La Gaffeliere 750ml
RP: This is another St. Emilion estate that has ratcheted up the quality level since Michel Rolland�s team was installed as consultants. Possibly the finest wine La Gaffeliere has produced since their 1961 or 1949, the broad, expansive, deep ruby purple-colored 2003 boasts extraordinary elegance and purity as well as substantial flavor concentration. With copious quantities of dried herbs, black currants, sweet cherries, caramel, and spice box, this rich, moderately tannic beauty should be at its peak in 5-6 years, and last for two decades or more. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2025+.
Tasting Notes :Rather muted nose, but some great blackberry fruit aromas coming up from the glass at times. Tannins rather obvious and perhaps even extraneous on the palate; there is fruit and texture, but a sense of dried out over-extraction.
