    A Magnificent, Generous and Very Fine Grand Cru from Saint-Emilion

    Property of the Comtes Von Neipperg Estates, the magnificent Canon-La-Gaffeliere radiates among the most beautiful references of the prestigious Saint-Emilion appellation, on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region.

    Long followed by the well-known consultant winemaker Stephane Derenoncourt, Chateau Canon-La-Gaffeliere was rewarded for the efforts made on the property with the highly rare and sought-after Premier Grand Cru Classe B classification. 2014 marked the first vintage certified organic.

    Home to a rare collection of native clones, a result of rigorous mass selections, the vineyard enjoys an exceptional terroir, characterized by warm and young soils located at the bottom of the slopes of Saint-Emilion, Chateau Canon-La-Gaffeliere has distinguished itself in these past few vintages with the delicate and deep nature of its wines.

    Despite the extensive damage to the Chateau Canon-La-Gaffeliere vineyard during the episodes of frost at the end of April, 2017 promises to be a sensational vintage.

    With its blend dominated by Merlot (60%), complemented by Cabernet Franc (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%), the Chateau Canon-La-Gaffeliere 2017 is a real success, in which all the elements come together to form a perfect harmony. With its pure and fresh fruit, the magnificent bouquet reveals delicate crème de cassis and blueberry, followed by fragrances of plum liqueur, along with complex perfumes of sweet spices and empyreumatic notes, reminiscent of summer undergrowth, when the wine is swirled. On the palate, the wine reveals a generous texture, guided by a solid tannic structure, which also displays a silky, fine grain. The incredible finesse of the wine stretches in length to a persistent finish, full of minerality. Freshness, elegance, finesse and depth, the Chateau Canon-La-Gaffeliere 2017 is simply superb.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Canon la Gaffeliere comes roaring out of the glass with exuberant notes of baked blackberries, blueberry compote and redcurrant jelly plus hints of forest floor, dried roses and cedar chest with a waft of fallen leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has fantastic density with a firm frame of finely grained tannins and tons of freshness, finishing with lingering layers of bright, energetic fruit.
