Marks and reviews
Produced from a prodigious vintage, Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere 2009 is among the most beautiful revelations of the Saint-Emilion appellation on the Right Bank in the Bordeaux region. The ambition of this exceptional estate is to maintain an exceptional vineyard and respect its terroir so that future generations can enjoy it. Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere is a Premier Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Emilion in 2012 and the estate makes a point of excluding the use of herbicides and pesticides. Because of this dedication to the environment, it earned its Organic Agriculture certification for the vintage 2014.
Displaying the classic and distinguished profile of the greatest Saint-Emilion wines, Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere 2009 reveals a seductive aromatic bouquet with notes of blackcurrant and plum along with great minerality. The generous mouthfeel offers an elegant structure within a frame of well-integrated tannins and subtle oaky notes from aging. The energy of the fruit adds vibrancy to the palate as well. The wine extends all the way to the finish with freshness and persistency. A beautiful Saint-Emilion wine that promises a prodigious evolution in bottle.
