Château La Gaffeliere resides in the renowned St. Emilion appellation of Bordeaux and is classified as a Premier Grand Cru Classe B. Château La Gaffeliere has the merit of being one of the oldest, family owned vineyards in St. Emilion. The family traces their roots in the Right Bank all the way back to the 1400’s. Today La Gaffeliere produces approximately 10,000 cases per year from their estate just south of town with a blend typically about 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 65% Merlot, and 30% Cabernet Franc. Due to the more continental climate than Left Bank wines of the Médoc as well as the vineyards lying on top of sandy clay-limestone soils, the wines are quite robust and ripe with a nice mineral component to add complexity. Enjoy these beautiful wines with a nice skirt steak and mash or a rack of lamb.
