This Premier Grand Cru Classé St Emilion is the oldest family owned vineyards of the appellation. The estate was split in two part, the other part taking the name of Canon La Gaffeliere.
Aromas of blueberry and blackberry alongside leather notes. Full bodied and elegant with a solid structure.
An absolutely spectacular effort, the 2009 is one of the all-time great La Gaffelieres produced. One would have to go back to the 2005, 1947 or 1961 to find this level of quality from this ancient, historic vineyard planted adjacent to the walls of St.-Emilion, on the Cote Pavie... the 2009 reveals compelling elegance, tremendous intensity and opulence and more viscosity than one normally sees...- 95 pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
