Canon La Gaffelière 2010 takes the power and stature of the 2010 vintage, which was solar and exceptional in Bordeaux. The color is deep black ink. The nose is subtle, deep, rich and exuberant with notes of blackberry, roasted coffee and black pepper. It is a full Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, right, fresh and explosive. On the palate, this wine has a remarkable density with a tensed mid-palate and rich tannins. Everything seems perfectly melted and smooth. Canon La Gaffelière 2010 is definitely a wine with a great aging potential. It is to be enjoyed for the next 30 years.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
