A beautiful deep purple color as well as sweet aromas of incense, charcoal, black fruits, and a hint of black truffles are found in this deep, medium to full-bodied 2008. With pure fruit, good acids, and finely grained, ripe, well-integrated tannins, this impressively endowed, yet unevolved offering may compete with La Gaffeliere’s fabulous 2005, and should age for 20-25 years. Score: 91-93+; Drink: 2009 - 2034; Tasted April 2009; Wine Advocate #182 - Robert Parker

One of the highlights of this year's Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux event was this lovely 2008 from La Gaffelière. A deep and wonderfully polished wine, it is bursting with impressively continuous fruit with sweetening complements of neatly placed oak making the picture complete. Its unobtrusive, beautifully fit tannins provide proper structure yet still allow ongoing fruit to show through, and, there is no doubt that the wine will age for a good many years despite having a friendlier face than young claret often exhibits.
