Winemakers Note

This property is without a doubt one of the gem of Saint-Emilion . It is located almost inside the village, in the southern area , in front of Ausone . The Malet Roquefort family owns 38 hectares, of which 22 hectares of 1st Grand Cru Classé. The vines are planted on various types of soils : limestone plateau, clay-limestone hillsides, and more siliceous at the foot of the slopes. The same family has owned it for more than 300 years! We may say they know the place and know how to get the best from their vineyard! During the past decade , the vineyard was re structured and a new modern cellar was built , with stainless steel vats shaped like an upside down truncated cone. The whole vinification process is now 100% based on gravity , to preserve the purity of the fruits and its fresh and precise aromas . The Malet Roquefort family hired Stéphane Derenoncourt as a consultant to help them to achieve their quest of a pure and elegant wine . We have seen the results for a few years now, and we are convinced La Gaffelière is more than ever a must have in one’s cellar. http://gaffeliere.com/en/video-the-soul-of-chateau-la-gaffeliere/
