Chateau Gaffeliere

33 (0)5 57 24 72 15 SAINT-ÉMILION, 33330
France

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.

  •    I just posted almost all of my notes on Bordeaux 2012 on my website, and I must say that Trotanoy and La Fleur Petrus are actually tempting me, price-wise, to "pull the futures trigger".  But that's about it.  Palmer, also on my very top list of faves, is just too expensive. I mean, I could get a Leoville Poyferre 1990 for about the same pric... Read More

  • If I were anywhere near New York on the 29th I'd be going to this event. Great wine, interesting winemakers, and lots of old posters, art nouveau or otherwise. Why is it I'd rather have one of them on my wall then a Flash banner ad from the Web?Price seems like more than a bargain, and the money goes to charity, too....   ... Here's your chance ...

  • Château Canon Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A bit Funky on the nose with a dusty character and dried wild cherry fruit accented with green tobacco notes. On entry this is rather soft, modestly endowed with a nice mineral soil tone up front then building gently layered complexity with notes of cherry, tobacco, and oak spice building across the palate. The backend shows better focus as the ... Read More

  • Château Canon Saint Émilion Clos Canon 2nd Vin 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Well made, full of rich fruit, but a bit oo extracted for my palette. I can't pick a fault with the wine, but somehow it lacks some fun. It ticks the right boxes in quality stakes, but somehow it lacks a little imagination and cunning to make it a great wine.Good, very good, but not great. Read More
