Chateau Canon la Gaffeliere 2007

Bordeaux,St Emilion Grand Cru
WA89, WS88
Merlot, Cabernet France, Cabernet Sauvignon

On tasting, the 2007 Canon la Gaffeliere has a lovely chestnut-tinged bouquet with satisfying, commendable fruit generosity given the growing season, brimming with buxom raspberry and wild cherry scents. The palate is smooth on the entry, quite gamy in quality and curiously reminding me of a fine Stellenbosch Cabernet blend (meant as a complement). I admire the depth and weight of this Saint Emilion, and while it is just beginning to show some dryness on the finish, it should give pleasure for another 5-6 years.  Drink: 2017~2024 - WA89

Pretty milk chocolate, earth, mushroom and berry on the nose. Medium- to full-bodied, with good fruit, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Slightly hollow midpalate. Drinkable now, but will develop complexity with bottle age. Best after 2012.- WS88

Current proprietor Count Stephan von Neipperg also owns La Mondotte, Clos de L'Oratoire and Chateau Peyreau in Saint-Emilion, plus a handful of other estates around Bordeaux.
