The 2014 La Gaffeliere is a Bordeaux Blend from the esteemed region of Saint Emilion in Bordeaux, France. This wine showcases the elegance and structure that the region is known for, making it a true gem for Bordeaux enthusiasts.

In the glass, the La Gaffeliere displays a deep, garnet-red color that hints at the intensity and complexity within. Aromas of black currant, sliced mushroom, and flowers dance on the nose, creating an enticing bouquet that draws you in.

On the palate, this wine truly shines. It is medium to full-bodied, with a tight and refined texture that highlights its precision and verve. Ripe blackcurrant, black cherries, and plum flavors take center stage, accompanied by subtle hints of fig and licorice. The palate is kept lively by bright acidity and a touch of freshness, which balances out the dense tannins. The finish is long and focused, leaving a lasting impression.

The 2014 La Gaffeliere has received high praise from critics, further solidifying its status as a top-notch Bordeaux. Wine Enthusiast awarded it an impressive 96 points, lauding its great structure, elegance, and superb balance. Wine Spectator also recognized its excellence, giving it a score of 93 and noting its persistent yet fine-grained structure.

This wine has the potential for aging, with Jeb Dunnuck suggesting it will drink handsomely for 10-15+ years. However, it is also enjoyable now, allowing you to experience the beauty of this Bordeaux Blend at its prime.
