Bordeaux,St Emilion Grand Cru
WA97, WE96, WS94
Merlot, Cabernet France, Cabernet Sauvignon

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. Drink: 2024~2054 - WA97

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 - WE96

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. - WS94

The Winery

Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere is a property in Saint-Emilion, producing a wine that is known for its elegance and finesse. In 2012, it was promoted to Premier Grand Cru Classe status. Canon La Gaffeliere began as two separate estates, Canon Boitard and La Gaffeliere Boitard, in the 19th Century. They were eventually combined, and bought by the Von Neipperg family in 1971. 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.
