2012 Guillemin la Gaffelière offers garnet red colour, and a complex nose of overripe black fruits, brioche, and mocha. A long aromatic finish. This wine has excellent ageing potential.
Parker : 91+ / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker : Very elegant kirsch liqueur-like notes mixed with licorice, spice and earth jump from the glass of this famous St.-Emilion, long-owned by the Malet Roquefort family. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc (14% alcohol), this has slightly more acidity and structure than some St.-Emilions. The limestone-dominated terroir comes through in the wine's striking and very powerful minerality. It is medium-bodied, elegant, tightly knit and probably in need of 2-4 years of bottle age. It should drink well for the following 15 years.
