Blend of 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. Located on the pied de côte (foot of the slope) south of the medieval village of Saint-Émilion, Château Canon La Gaffelière's terroir consists of clay-limestone and clay-sand soil that is very permeable and particularly efficient at retaining heat. Certified organic, the wines are classy, remarkably well-structured, complex, pure, and always elegant

Winemaker Notes

Stephan von Neipperg

Château Canon La Gaffelière

by Stephan von Neipperg
A blend of Merlot (50%), Cabernet franc (35%) and Cabernet sauvignon (15%), the 2018 vintage has a fantastically exuberant nose of preserved plums, blueberry compote and black cherry pie with hints of menthol, mocha, Sichuan pepper and garrigue, plus wafts of lavender and tilled soil. On the palate, the wine displays an exquisitely velvety texture, structured by dense tannins with a silky grain, finishing long with a menthol lift
