Wine Advocate-Parker : 96/100
The finest La Gaffelière I have ever tasted, the prodigious 2005 boasts a dense ruby/purple colour in addition to a flamboyant bouquet of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, blackberries, smoked meats, incense, and Asian spice. Fabulously deep and full-bodied as well as ethereal and exceptionally elegant for its explosive richness and intensity, its lightness of reflecting the vineyard’s sensational terroir. This succulent beauty appears to be approachable, but that belies some significant tannins.
