Château Canon La Gaffelière is 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. A member of a German family involved in viticulture for almost 8 centuries, Stephen von Neipperg manages the Château Canon La Gaffelière with great passion and talent, through a resolutely modern approach to viticulture.
Château Canon-La-Gaffelière produces Saint-Emilion wines that stem from a vineyard of almost 20 hectares. The vines rest on clay-limestone and sandy-clay soils.
Cabernet Franc (35%)
Cabernet Sauvignon (15%).
The dark colour is a beautiful purple with violet highlights.
The nose blends fruity aromas (red fruits, kirsch cherries), liquorice and floral notes (orange blossom) with a beautiful minerality.
The velvety and well-structure palate exudes alluringly silky tannins as well as a subtle alliance between power and precision while preserving a lively freshness.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Canon la Gaffeliere has a fantastically exuberant nose of preserved plums, blueberry compote and black cherry pie with hints of menthol, mocha, Sichuan pepper and garrigue plus wafts of lavender and tilled soil. Full-bodied, concentrated and wonderfully decadent, it has a firm yet plush texture and just enough freshness in the background, finishing long with a menthol lift.
