CHATEAU CLOS LA GAFFELIERE St. Emilion Grand Gru 2018
This is the second wine of classed growth Château la Gaffelière. Dominated by Merlot, the wine has weight as well as a rich, velvety texture supporting the powerful black fruits. As befits a second wine, this should develop relatively quickly and generously.
This is a very solid red with plum, wet-earth and tobacco character. Medium to full body and firm, lightly chewy tannins. Savory finish. [Enjoy tonight or cellar through 2035.] Score – 92-93. (jamessuckling.com, April 11, 2019)
