Critical Acclaim

RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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.


WS 94
Wine Spectator

Features a deliciously ripe and inviting core of plum, boysenberry and blackberry compote flavors, backed by anise and apple wood notes. Juicy in feel through the finish, with the fruit lingering. Tobacco and iron accents wait in reserve. Cellar for maximum effect. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2022 through 2038.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

This open wine brings out delicious black-currant fruits as well as the essential core of dark tannins. The solid backbone will stand the wine in good stead as it matures, softening the juicy, forward fruitiness. Drink from 2023.

JS 93
James Suckling

A linear, tight red with currant and fresh-herb aromas and flavors. Medium body. Fine tannins and a bright finish. Clean and lively. Drink in 2021 and onwards.

TA 93
Tim Atkin
Bright and vibrant red and black fruit aromas, no obvious new oak. Rounded tannins and soft fruit in balance. Good fresh acidity, but plenty of flesh, weight and structure. Ripe and soft finish.
Barrel Sample: 91-93
JD 92
Jeb Dunnuck

Incorporating plenty of second-generation grapes, the deep purple-hued 2017 Canon-La-Gaffeliere checks in as 60% Merlot, 30%Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. It's a fresher, racier Saint-Emilion that has good acidity, fine tannins, and medium body, yet good concentration and balance. Give this outstanding 2017 4-6 years, and it will keep for at least two decades. Rating: 92+

D 92
Decanter

The sexy, rich kick of Canon la Gaffelière is on full display, giving a counterpoint to the saline limestone character that tightens things through the finish. Menthol almost spearmint finish, this is a good wine that has gained in complexity over ageing. Drinking Window 2024 - 2040

Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere Château Canon La Gaffelière Winery Image

Located on the famous slope (and the foot of the slope) south of the medieval village of Saint-Emilion, Chateau Canon La Gaffelière has belonged to the Counts von Neipperg since 1971. Representing some eight centuries of family winegrowing tradition, Count Stephan von Neipperg has succeeded in placing Chateau Canon La Gaffelière among the top Grands Crus Classés of Saint-Emilion thanks to a winegrowing philosophy that gives priority not only to quality, but also respect for the environment.

Chateau Canon La Gaffelière is located on the outskirts of the medieval town of Saint-Emilion, at the southern foot of the slope. The 19.5 hectare (48 acres) vineyard has a complex, outstanding terroir of clay-limestone and clay-sand soil. The topsoil is primarily sandy, increasingly so as one moves away from the slope. The unusual proportion of grape varieties (55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) at Canon-La-Gaffelière is perfectly suited to the soil.
