Château La Gaffelière Naudes

|1961||Château La Gaffelière Naudes (St. Émilion Grand Cru)|
Still going strong the wine kicks off with coffee grounds, roasted plums, herbs, dried flowers, cigar wrapper and a hint of tomato. Medium-bodied, sweet and tart on the palate and in the finish, which ends with a savory edge.

Leafy with added complexities of spice box, cigar wrapper, cedar, leather and wet earth that adds to the red pit fruits. There is freshness, soft tannins and more, delicious, ripe, red fruits along with herbs and earthy notes in the finish. This is one of the better values from 1961 in the Right Bank, if you can find a bottle.

Explosive nose of flowers, black raspberry, thyme, sweet cherry, tobacco and fresh herbs. Silky, soft and smooth, with a sweet, fresh, sensuous red berry finish.

|1955||Château La Gaffelière Naudes (St. Émilion Grand Cru)|
A stellar example of fully mature, Merlot-based Bordeaux at its peak. Silky and soft in texture, the medium/full-bodied wine offers up tobacco leaf, cigar box, thyme, burning embers and mushrooms alongside the sweet, ripe, red cherries. With freshness and some sweetness remaining on the palate, this is well-worth seeking out in the auction market, as not everyone knows how good these wines are.

|1950||Château La Gaffelière Naudes (St. Émilion Grand Cru)|
It is hard to believe this is 70 years old. Just fabulous from start to finish. The is soft, lush and silky with that special patina that comes from age. The perfume, with its truffle, wet earth, forest floor, cigar box and red fruit hits all the right notes. On the palate, this is even better. I might not see this beauty again, but the memory still lingers.
