Clos La Gaffelière 2012 – St. Emilion Grand Cru

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.

WINEMAKER  Stephane Derenoncourt


GRAPE VARIETIES  50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Franc

TERROIR  Limestone plateau with clay layers and green marls, hillside with Fronsac molasse and foot of the hillside with deep carbonates sands.

CULTURE & VINIFICATION  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. This wine ages in one-year French oak barrels during 10 to 12 months.
