En Primeur Château La Gaffeliere will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
La Gaffeliere can trace parts of the estate back to the 11th Century yet it was the arrival of Comte de Malet-Roquefort in the 1800’s that led to the building of the gothic style Chateau and investments in the vineyards with notable results over the following century and a half. Having been through somewhat of a less celebrated period during the 1980’s, wines produced here have again been on a one way upward trajectory for the last twenty years. Today there are 18 hectares under vine planted 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The wines are aged in 70% to 80% new oak barrels for 18 months and in good years age well for up to two decades.
En Primeur pricing is per case as specified and excludes UK duty and VAT, which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine is released from bond for delivery. Bonded storage is available. Onward delivery or transfer is not included and can be quoted for on request. Free delivery on orders over £100 does not apply to bonded or en primeur wines.
