Château La Gaffelière 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is aromatic, fresh, racy and slightly tight. It reveals notes of fresh blackberry, fresh cassis and small notes of wild strawberry, wild red berries associated fine/discreet touches of lily as well as a subtle hint of liquorice and a very discreet hint od chocolate. The palate is fresh, mineral, elegant, well-balanced and offers tension, an acid frame as well as precision. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh blackberry, fleshy/fresh cassis and more slightly fleshy/fresh red berries associated with small touches of flowers (lily, cornflower…) as well as subtle touches of liquorice stick, nut and an imperceptible hint of chocolate/toasted (in the background). Tannins are slightly firm. Good length. gourmandize on the persistence.
