Château La Gaffelière, which gained status in 1954 as a Saint-Émilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, is the original estate of the Malet Roquefort family who originally settled and established the winery at the turn of the 1700’s. It is a gorgeous estate in Saint-Emilion which can be found in a great location right next to Chateau Pavie.
While their first wine gets much of the attention, their Dame de Gaffeliere puts most first wines to shame– it’s a big, powerful Bordeaux blend with the muscle of a wine far more expensive than today’s price tag. In the sensational 2018 vintage in the Right Bank, Chateau la Gaffeliere’s second wine ‘Dame de Gaffeliere’ very well might take the prize for the best value of the vintage. It’s an exceptionally sleek and full-bodied Bordeaux Blend that perfectly displays the incredible depth, structure and agebility of the great Right Bank wines.

This is the second wine of classed growth Château la Gaffelière. Dominated by Merlot, the wine has weight as well as a rich, velvety texture supporting the powerful black fruits. As befits a second wine, this should develop relatively quickly and generously. Drink from 2025.
