Canon La Gaffelière 2010 takes the power and stature of the 2010 vintage, which was solar and exceptional in Bordeaux. The color is deep black ink. The nose is subtle, deep, rich and exuberant with notes of blackberry, roasted coffee and black pepper. It is a full Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, right, fresh and explosive. On the palate, this wine has a remarkable density with a tensed mid-palate and rich tannins. Everything seems perfectly melted and smooth. Canon La Gaffelière 2010 is definitely a wine with a great aging potential. It is to be enjoyed for the next 30 years.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Canon la Gaffeliere delivers classic plum preserves, boysenberries and cigar box scents with wafts of underbrush, dried roses and cinnamon stick. Full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house with a solid line of grainy tannins and racy freshness supporting the dense fruit, finishing with compelling purity and great length.
