The elegant seduction of a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru

Produced from a prodigious vintage, Château Canon La Gaffelière 2009 is among the most beautiful revelations of the Saint-Émilion appellation on the Right Bank in the Bordeaux region. The ambition of this exceptional estate is to maintain an exceptional vineyard and respect its terroir so that future generations can enjoy it. Château Canon La Gaffelière is a Premier Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion in 2012 and the estate makes a point of excluding the use of herbicides and pesticides. Because of this dedication to the environment, it earned its Organic Agriculture certification for the vintage 2014.

True to the style that makes the property unique, the blend of Château Canon La Gaffelière 2009 consists of Merlot (55%) and Cabernet Franc (35%) supplemented by Cabernet Sauvignon (10%).

Displaying the classic and distinguished profile of the greatest Saint-Émilion wines, Château Canon La Gaffelière 2009 reveals a seductive aromatic bouquet with notes of blackcurrant and plum along with great minerality. The generous mouthfeel offers an elegant structure within a frame of well-integrated tannins and subtle oaky notes from ageing. The energy of the fruit adds vibrancy to the palate as well. The wine extends all the way to the finish with freshness and persistency. A beautiful Saint-Émilion wine that promises a prodigious evolution in bottle.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 Canon la Gaffeliere leaps from the glass with bold baked blackberries, plum preserves and blueberry compote notes with nuances of licorice, sweaty leather, tapenade and garrigue. It is quite mature and open in the medium-bodied mouth, with a firm, chewy frame and lively backbone, finishing with loads of savory/meaty layers.
