Description

An Exceptional Premier Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion

Produced by a prestigious Premier Grand Cru Classé B of Saint-Émilion, the Château La Gaffelière 2018 offers a magnificent expression of the terroir and grape varieties of this emblematic appellation on the right bank of Bordeaux.

2018 will be remembered as a year marked by strong climatic contrasts, with a very rainy winter and spring. Château La Gaffelière managed to escape the hailstorms that hit Bordeaux at the end of May. The property was exposed to significant mildew pressure until the end of July. The beautiful summer then brought with it scorching hot temperatures.

More than usual, the effort and attention of the technical teams at Château La Gaffelière were key to get the best out of the vines. Begun with the Merlot on September 10 and ending on October 9 with the Cabernet Franc, the harvest took place in the best conditions. Once the grapes were harvested manually, they were stored in a cold room for 12 hours, at a temperature of 7 degrees before being sorted by optical sorting. The juices were then vinified parcel by parcel in a gravity-fed vat, without the use of sulfur.

The Grand Vin of the property, the Château La Gaffelière 2018 was aged for 14 to 16 months in oak barrels, 60% of which are new oak. The vintage blends Merlot (58%) and Cabernet Franc (42%).
