Clos La Gaffaliere St Emilion 2019

$75.99

Bordeaux red with polished well-integrated tannins that are soft and persistent. Medium-bodied with rich fruit and a flavorful finish.

What the critics say...

?The 2019 La Gaffeli?re has a wonderful bouquet of mineral-rich black and red fruit and sous-bois, a little tobacco and pencil box emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fleshy and ripe. Perfectly balanced, leading to an almost Left Bank, graphite-tinged finish courtesy of the 40% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 continues the purple patch of this Saint-?milion stalwart. No doubt a wine that will give 30 to 40 years of drinking pleasure. Drink 2025-2060.?
96 points ? Vinous

?The 2019 La Gaffeli?re wafts from the glass with a rich bouquet of blackberries and cherries mingled with subtle hints of burning embers and loamy soil that's framed by a deft application of creamy new oak. Medium to full-bodied, deep and seamless, it's a concentrated, vibrant wine built around bright acids and fine, powdery tannins. Its vivid fruit tones and classical balance make this Cabernet Franc-rich blend a promising candidate for sustained bottle age. Anyone who has tasted the great wines this estate produced in the 1950s and 1960s knows how great this site can be; and with stricter selection as well as the elimination of fruit from vines growing on the plain from the blend, that potential appears to be being unleashed at last. Drink Date 2027 ? 2057.?
