Clos la Gaffelière Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"Following the finest example of La Gaffeliere I have ever tasted (the 2005), the 2006 is a strong effort revealing a dark ruby/purple color as well as aromas of roasted herbs, pain grille, sweet black cherries, currants, cedar, spice box, and earth. This medium-bodied, elegant, moderately tannic St.-Emilion should be drinkable between 2009-2018..89-91" WA 5/07

Chateau Gaffeliere:
The Château La Gaffelière vineyard enlarges upon 25 hectares and gazes its 22 hectares vineyard all-in-one parcel between the Ausone hill and the Pavie one. The whole favourably south oriented, receives an ideal sunshine which benefits to the 35 years old vine. Hillsides are clayey and calcareous, whereas hill-feet are more siliceous. The vineyard is planted with 80% of Merlot, 10% of Cabernet Franc and 10 % of Cabernet Sauvignon.
