Winemaker Notes

#2 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013

A rather "intellectual" wine with a great deal of finesse that is relatively open even in its youth... There is always a floral side to enhance its fruitiness, with hints of forest floor. A great pleasure on both the nose and the palate. Fine and delicate.
Blend: 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 96
Wine Spectator
This takes the power of the vintage and puts it in its pocket for later, preferring instead to let mouthwatering briar, loganberry, mulberry and blackberry fruit strut its way forward, enlivened with roasted wood spice and supported by suavely but thoroughly embedded iron-tinged structure. Should cruise for two decades. Best from 2016 through 2035.
RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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.

JS 95
James Suckling
This is tight and powerful. Solid frame of fruit and tannins. Curious about this. Like the 2009. This is 40% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot.
Barrel Sample: 94-95 Points
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
Very complete, a wine that shows great freshness as well as impressive density. It has some Cabernet spice, allied to juicy black plum fruit flavors. This is going to age well.
Barrel Sample: 93-95 Points

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.
