Tasting Notes

"The 2013 Canon la Gaffelière has a pretty nose in the context of the vintage: no under-ripeness here and nicely defined with scents of black cherries, iodine, violet and cedar. The palate is soft and supple on the entry with light tannin, a touch of mocha tinging the red and black fruit, leading to a structured finish that is simple but lingers in satisfying fashion. This easy-going Saint Emilion should provide a decade's worth of pleasure." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (10/28/2016, Issue 227), Ratings: 89, Drink: 2016-2028

"This is a warm, rich wine with spicy black-fruit flavors. Touches of coffee have come through with the wood aging. Bright acidity gives a touch of freshness to the firm tannins at the end. Drink this generous, while still serious wine from 2020." - Roger Voss, The Wine Enthusiast (3/2016), Ratings: 93

"Production was down to one-third of what they produced in 2012, as only 2,000+ cases came out of this 30-acre vineyard from the clay and limestone soils at the bottom of the foothills of St.-Emilion. The final blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet France and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon from proprietor Stephan von Neipperg achieved 12.85% natural alcohol. Plenty of Christmas fruitcake, licorice, tobacco leaf, and red and blackcurrants are present in this soft, easygoing, fruity wine that will be charming and ideal for drinking in its first 7-8 years of life." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (8/27/2014, Issue 214), Ratings: 87-90
