1961 La Gaffeliere, St-Emilion

SKU #951120

According to Robert Parker: "When I last wrote about this wine, I commented that the wine required drinking up, but a bottle I tasted in France in 1990 had more depth and freshness. It could easily have held up for another 7-8 years. Medium ruby with some amber/rust color at the edge, the bouquet exhibits the vintage's telltale intensity and opulence. In the mouth, the wine is ripe and full, with an underlying spicy, mineral-like fruitiness. The finish is long and alcoholic. It should be drunk up, but based on the most recent bottle I tasted, it could hold up to another 4-5 years of cellaring." (01/98)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
