2010 La Gaffelière, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1067004 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is more precise and focused with black truffle and berry. Full body, layered and refined. Beautiful freshness and form. Framed. Inner quote mark (7/2017)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010's final blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc offers up impressive levels of red, blue and black fruits as well as some toasty oak and crushed rock, giving it minerality. Of course, the acidity in this vintage, with its lower pHs than 2009, provide a freshness and precision that is rare for wines so rich. This wine has plenty of tannin, so give it 4-6 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30 years. (RP) 95+ Inner quote mark (2/2013)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red with a violet tinge. Minty aromas of red cherry, raspberry and violet. Sweet and nicely balanced wine, with flavors similar to the aromas and a persistence to the floral element. The very smooth tannins and creamy texture make this wine hard to resist even now. Inner quote mark (6/2011)
