2015 vintage. The second wine of Château La Gaffelière, a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, from vines on the lower part ot the southern hills of the estate and young vines from the better spots. Aged in 1 year old barriques, no new wood. This has real understated class. The nose is still a bit shy, give it time to open up. Cassis, flowers and a subtle hint of truffle. Nicely concentrated, but gently extracted, this is all about finesse and elegance. It has impeccable balance, nice complexity and good length. This is not a showy wine, but a very classic gentleman. Lovely value at 20 euros. Abv. 14%.

16/20 (88/100) Вино с ароматами черешни, клубники, чёрной смородины, спелого яблока и ванили. Тельное с довольно высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, ещё липкими танинами. Напористо и грубовато, но, в целом, симпатично. #dfwe2018
