Since the beginning of the 17th century, the Malet Roquefort family has lived in Saint-Emilion. The estate of Saint Emilion has been one of the Premiers Grands Crus Classés – official list was first drawn up in 1954.
Count Léo de Malet Roquefort inherited the family property in 1958. Early in life, his son Alexandre de Malet Roquefort was drawn by his passion for this terroir and has never stopped working to reveal the splendor of the Château La Gaffelière estate. With the same passion, father and son worked together to improve and enhance the vineyard, combining ancestral methods and modern techniques. Since 2013, Alexandre de Malet Roquefort has been managing all the family properties, including Château La Gaffelière.
