CHATEAU CANON LA GAFFELIERE - Saint Emilion Grand Cru

CHATEAU CANON LA GAFFELIERE - Saint Emilion Grand Cru

"This wine shows wonderfully exotic tapenade, licorice, Christmas fruitcake, cedar wood, blackberry and sweet cherry notes in its strikingly provocative aromatics. On the palate, the wine is dense and full-bodied, with stunning concentration, purity, texture and length. It is full-bodied, silky smooth and seems to have more in common with the 2009 than one might expect, although the freshness and tannin levels are slightly more elevated. Drink it over the next 20+ years. An absolutely spectacular success once again from proprietor Stephan von Niepperg. Gilles Pauquet is the consultant and has done an exemplary job with this particular estate." - 95 Points, The Wine Advocate (Robert Parker), March 2013.
