Awards and/or Press Quotes
Decanter "You can feel the excitement building around this estate following extensive replanting and refocussing. The frost of 2017 changed the blend a little, and they decided to stick with it as they liked the results so much - meaning they are using less of the vineyard for the grand vin." March 2019 - 96
James Suckling "This young and dynamic wine offers aromas of blackberries and blueberries. Nice amplitude in the mouth. Firm tannins and fresh finish. Shows the structure and intensity. Accurate and classy. I love his finale." July 2017 - 95-96
Antoni Galloni The Wine Advocate 95 Points "La Gaffelière 2016 is not a "big" Saint-Emilion, but rather a wine of finesse and total class. I loved it. The blend is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, the latter is highlighted by the lively and fragrant notes it brings to the wine." April 2017 - 92-95
