Winemaker Notes

Stephan von Neipperg

Château Canon La Gaffelière

by Stephan von Neipperg
The 2018 vintage has a rich, offensive nose, with an exotic richness. Highly dense in the mouth and saturated, with fine-grained tannins, excellent depth, and tension on the palate, long structured, lively, and with clearly defined fruit message: red, fresh and juicy. A unique, soft drinking Canon La Gaffelière with marvelous tension and playful abondance.
