A prestigious wine estate founded in the 17th century in the Bordeaux region. Located south of the medieval city of Saint-Émilion, Château Canon-La-Gaffelière has been under the direction of Stephen von Neipperg since 1983. Complex herby, floral and fruity nose. A mix of blue/black and red fruits, some spice and game. Good weight and fruity intensity, this is fleshy, silky and voluminous, notably long with very fine-grained tannins. Stylish.

Scores & Reviews

95-96 / 100

James Suckling

Very refined and polished with minerally, almost salty character. Full body and beautiful, compact tannins. Racy finish. Excellent drive to this at the end.

17 / 20

Jancis Robinson MW

Almost earthy, vineyard-fresh feel to the nose and palate. Flows gently, building discreetly to a persistent finish. Attractive fruit and fine-grained tannins. Ageing potential.

94 / 100

Decanter

Concentrated and intense, with juicy liquorice and blackberry flavours dominant on the attack. This is an excellent wine showing beautiful tension with slate and crushed stone texture. Chocolate shavings, bitter and intense, give a kick on the finish. Even better after 24 hours of opening, which is an extremely good sign for an en primeur sample. A yield of 32.5hl/ha. 50% new oak.
