A taste of the Bordeaux Grands Crus Château La Gaffelière
Cognac One is proud to be the New York importer and distributor for the well-known Château La Gaffelière! Their delectable Bordeaux wines include the 1er Grand Cru Classé and Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. Both wines are recognizable – the 1er Grand Cru Classé Château La Gaffelière 2010 even received a phenomenal 95 pts from the Wine Advocate!
Count Leo de Malet Roquefort and his son Alexandre de Malet Roquefort have worked together to improve and enhance the Château La Gaffelière vineyard, combining ancestral methods and modern techniques.
“Impressive levels of red, blue and black fruits as well as some toasty oak and crushed rock. The acidity in this vintage provide freshness and precision. Plenty of tannin, so give it 4-6 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30 years.” – Château La Gaffelière 1er Grand Cru Classé 2010, 95 pts by the Wine Advocate.
“A very ripe wine with some signs of evolution in the mahogany reflections and spicy nose (leather). Tasty nose, ready to drink thanks to a ripe harvest, solar notes, rich texture which expands smoothly.” – Clos La Gaffelière 2012 St Emilion Grand Cru, by Terre de Vins
