Buy 3 - 2017 Clos La Gaffeliere, Saint Emilion Grand Cru (Special Father Day Trio)

  • S$24588

Trio Chateau Clos La Gaffeliere St. Emillion Grand Cru France

Vintage : 2017

Region : Saint Emilion

Country : France

Tasting Notes

The work in the plots of Clos is the equal to the actions in the parcels for the first label : pruning, cover, de-leafing, green harvest, hand-picking. In the cellar, the same technical gestures pace the successive stages of vinification.

Licorice, earth and dark, fresh plums, this wine is silky, limber and sweet with freshness and finesse in the finish. It is a “wine for pleasure” with a 10 years ‘potential of ageing. Clos La Gaffelière has now a firm and recognized identity . First, it was exclusively proposed to private customers. Bordeaux negociants start to be interested in the vintage since 2000.

About Winery

Château La Gaffelière is owned by Léo de Malet Roquefort. Located in the centre of the St. Emilion appellation, due south of St. Emilion town, the property shares a similar climate to that enjoyed by both St.Emilion and Pomerol: more continental than the maritime Médoc, with generally more spring rainfall, though less in summer and winter.

La Gaffeliere’s vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon 5%, Merlot 65%, Cabernet Franc 30%) lie on a sloped sandy/clay-limestone topsoil and limestone subsoil (a mix of Côtes and Pieds de Côtes).

La Gaffeliere is classified as a 1er grand cru classé(B). Clos La Gaffeliere is their Second wine. Born in 1985, Clos is produced mainly from the young vines.

"Vivid and fruity with hints of blackberry and mineral undertones. Medium to full body, tight palate. Savory and delicious already."
