Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé B

The 2015 vintage was a wonderful year in Bordeaux, where a dry, warm spring allowed the vines to ensure a rapid flowering. The summer that followed brought together hot and dry conditions. A few rains in August were however beneficial for the vine, providing adequate water resources. September and October were cool, sunny and without rain, ensuring a complete maturation of the grape varieties and offering a serene harvest.

Blend of the 2015 vintage : 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet franc

The robe is a beautiful purple color, with brilliant garnet and tile highlights.

The nose is particularly expressive, with aromas of very ripe forest fruits, toasted wood, licorice and Sichuan pepper.

Soft at the attack, it evolves in roundness and complexity, carried by tannins of a brilliant finesse. It is particularly greedy, with flavors of blackberry, blackcurrant cream and raspberry, mixed with cocoa. It has a great freshness and a long lasting finish, which is persistent and racy.

Food and wine pairing:

Château La Gaffelière 2015 can accompany many meat dishes: a beef steak with foie gras and porcini mushrooms, a veal grenadin with morel sauce, a famous roast chicken or a duck breast with wine sauce and shallots.

The cheeses to choose from are those that are pressed uncooked: Edam, Gouda, Saint-nectaire or Salers.

For dessert, it will be particularly exquisite on a pear-chocolate tart, a tiramisu or a crispy chocolate dessert.

Ageing potential and tasting:

Château La Gaffelière 2015 will reach its peak between 2032 and 2035. However, it can be enjoyed now, by opening and if possible decanting the bottle 4 to 5 hours before tasting, in a room at room temperature.

Do not hesitate to proceed to successive tastings to measure the evolution of the wine and its qualitative peak.

The bottles should be kept in the cellar in a dark place, lying down, with an optimal hygrometric degree of 70%.
