This wine shows why the very general location of an important battle to the east of St.-Emilion is definitely on the up-and-up; deep, dark and full of the sweet scent of cherries, this wine enters the mouth with good, declining tannin, sweet red fruit and a hint of medicinal herb (eucalyptus, maybe). Long, powerful finish. Can be cellared for a number of years yet. 90 points.

Herbs and dark fruit, somewhat suppressed nose. A little bit green at this stage with a light to medium bodied mouth-feel with spice and floral notes. This is heavy cabernet concentration for St. Emilion, so patience will no doubt be rewarded. Still, this is showing the stuffing to be a 90-92 point wine with a drinking window of 2015-2030+.

This is one of the strongest efforts from Canon-La-Gaffeliere since their spectacular 1990. Tiny yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare and a final blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon have resulted in a wine of exceptional complexity. Aromas of roasted herbs, spice box, sweet and sour cherries, licorice, incense, and black fruits are followed by a wine with tremendous opulence, full body, and moderately high but sweet tannin. Excellent acidity gives precision to this big, but impeccably well-balanced, pure.

Château Canon-la-Gaffelière (formerly La Gaffelière- Boitard), has been recognised for centuries as one of the finest growths in Saint-Emilion. Count von Neipperg, scion of a family with eight centuries of winegrowing tradition, bought this estate in 1971. His son Stephan is currently in charge of managing the estate. A renaissance has since occurred at Canon-la-Gaffelière after several years of major efforts involving large-scale investments. All of this has been done with an indepth understanding of the special nature of the soil.The wine is made in an ultra-modern vat room with wooden fermenting vats. Château Canon-la-Gaffelière is very deep in colour with excellent concentration, intense fruity flavours and ripe tannin. It is both full-bodied and elegant with fine ageing potential. Each new vintage reveals a different facet of this wine's marvellously complex personality

Full, saturated medium ruby. Brooding aromas of crushed blackberry, kirsch, violet and licorice. Sweet on entry, then concentrated and lively, with ripe, integrated acidity framing the crushed black fruit flavors. This fruit bomb really spreads ou... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

This lush, expressive red is rich with ripe fruit flavors of blackberry and cassis, framed with coffee bean and dark chocolate. The tannins are firm but well-integrated, and juicy acidity keeps the wine fresh and bright through the spicy finish. Best... Wine Spectator.
