This cru, owned by Mr. Stephan Von Neipperg, has been promoted to Premier Grand Cru Classé since the new classification of 2012. Rightly so, because the owner has brought the quality very high through strict selections and low returns.

The 2020 Château Canon-La Gaffelière St.-Emilion is a blend of Merlot 55%, Cabernet Franc 30% and Cabernet Sauvignon 15%. The Château Canon la Gaffelière has a medium to deep garnet purple color in the glass. The Canon la Gaffeliere opens with an incredibly evocative scent of lilacs, cherries, raspberries, jasmine and Sichuan pepper over a core of ripe black plums, wild blueberries and dark chocolate with a hint of iron ore and cumin seeds. The medium to full-bodied palate reveals a fantastic intensity of blue and black fruit layers, supported by a rock solid frame of firm, fine-grained tannins and bold freshness, long ending with a firework of fruit, mineral and spicy nuances. An exciting wine from the start and one that should age very well and you should definitely decant in its younger years. This is an asset to the basement.

Vineyard for 2020 Château Canon-La Gaffelière St.-Emilion

This cru, owned by Mr. Stephan Von Neipperg, has been promoted to Premier Grand Cru Classé since the new classification of 2012. from Saint Emilion. The Classification of the Médoc (the left bank) from 1855 has (almost) never changed. In Saint-Émilion (right bank) things are different.

Here the classification is adjusted every few years and Châteaus can be promoted and relegated! In 2012, the last adjustment was made to the classification of Saint-Émilion. With this revaluation Château Canon La Gaffelière was promoted and this is of course completely justified, because the owner has raised the quality very high through strict selections and low returns. The terroir is partly very qualitative (clay-lime), but the flatter part at the foot of the slope with clay-sand is very filtering and warm in terms of composition. Here he has planted cabernet franc which is doing remarkably well, contributing to the strength and aromatic complexity of the wine, alongside the opulent and mouth-filling merlot. The cabernets also contribute to the elegance and natural finesse of Ch. Canon La Gaffeliere. From the 2015 vintage, the wine is certified organic.
