The "second" wine from the very coveted Château la Gaffelière located in the heart of Saint-Émilion, is an over-achieving, over-deliverer of stunning 2016 Bordeaux. Ready to drink now? You bet. Age for another 10-15 years? That too! You know how much we rave about 2015 and 2016 Bordeaux (seriously, the raving will not stop), and this lush, round, ready to enjoy, or save for a few years, Merlot-focused blend is what you need immediately. 

Purity! Elegance! Vivid! Delicious! How could you possibly say no to that?! We sure couldn't. 

Approachable and primed for cracking open and enjoying alongside some bold proteins in the near future, you gotta get this Bordeaux. With literally centuries of history on the property, the folks at Gaffelière aren't messing around. Discerning wine aficionados know this is a wine you'll want to snap up right quick, especially at this price ($26?! that's crazy good!).

Vivid and fruity with hints of blackberry and mineral undertones. Medium to full body and a tight palate. Savory and delicious already.
90 Jeb Dunnuck -
The second wine of La Gaffelière and made with consulting advice from Claude Gros, the 2016 Clos La Gaffelière is based on 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc brought up in a mix of barrel and concrete. It’s an elegant, medium-bodied Saint Emilion with good complexity (black cherries, ground earth, damp earth), moderate tannins, good concentration, and a clean, length finish. It’s upfront and ready to go, but I suspect it will keep for 10-15 years or more on its purity and elegance.
