2006 Chateau La Gaffeliere, St. Emilion

Product: LAGA06
Vintage: 2006
Region: St. Emilion
Bottle Size: 75cl
Grape Variety: Merlot Blend
Maturity: Ready to drink, but will improve
Following the finest example of La Gaffeliere I have ever tasted (the 2005), the 2006 is a strong effort revealing a dark ruby/purple color as well as aromas of roasted herbs, pain grille, sweet black cherries, currants, cedar, spice box, and earth. This medium-bodied, elegant, moderately tannic St.-Emilion should be drinkable between 2009-2018.
Score: 89-91 Robert Parker

Bright crimson. Heady, almost agricultural and charred nose. Really quite substantial, Very distinctive. Dry tannins on the finish but clean and neat. Punchy with good, direct, well-sculpted fruit.Solid and all on the finish rather than the nose. Bracing and impressive length. All on the finish in this wine.
Score: 17 Jancis Robinson MW

Our Tasting Note
Nose: Classic St. Emilion wine, nose with sweet black fruit, spice box and sweet earth.
Palate: Dark currants, cherries, followed by red fruit, both along with toasted oak , smokey and tobacoo. Dry but round tannins, medium-full bodied, classic St. Emilion.
