Chateau Canon-la-Gaffeliere St. Emilion Grand Cru
These are our steak wines – our fullest bodied red wines for those who prefer a little oomph in their glass. From Cabernet Sauvignon to Petite Verdot, from Bordeaux to the Napa Valley, these wines don’t pull any punches!
"The aromas are very complex with sweet tobacco, black truffles, blueberries and blackberries. Subtle. Menthol, too. Full-bodied yet so elegant. Structure with finesse and purity. The tannins are melted in the wine. Fabulous young wine. Try tasting it from 2023." - 96 points, James Suckling
"The 2016 Canon La Gaffelière is just as striking from bottle as it was from barrel. Bright, intensely aromatic and precise, the 2016 has it all. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, blood orange and rose petal all race through this silky, super-expressive Saint-Émilion. In 2016, Canon La Gaffelière is especially polished, refined and nuanced, which means also less overly powerful than in the past. It was compelling both times I tasted it from bottle." - 96 points, Vinous
