A fresh, tense Château Canon La Gaffelière 2016

A Classified Growth B from the Saint-Emilion appellation, the Château Canon La Gaffelière benefits from a vineyard planted on clay-limestone and clay-sandy soils. The wine is aged in barrels (60% in new barrels) on fine lees. The Château Canon La Gaffelière is a blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Château Canon La Gaffelière 2016 develops aromas of red fruit, black fruit and a beautiful minerality. On the palate, it is beautifully balanced with tasty touches of blackberry along with graphite. The wine is fresh on the palate with superb tension and an extremely persistent finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Canon la Gaffeliere is a blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon (vines organically certified) picked from 26 September to 15 October and matured in 60% new oak. The yield is 42 hectoliters per hectare. This offers one of the most cerebral aromatics that I have encountered from this Saint Emilion estate: mineral-rich red and black fruit, quite edgy, almost flinty in style. I adore the focus of these aromas that are wired directly into the olfactory senses. The palate is very well balanced and governed by the Cabernet component. The black fruit is lifted by some lovely graphite notes that lend it a very Left Bank-like personality. It is fresh, taut and linear with a very persistent finish. Unlike other vintages of Canon la Gaffeliÿre, I feel that this will require four to five years in bottle. As good as the 2015 last year, it might even surpass it.
