Nose
The nose blends fruity aromas (red fruits, kirsch cherries), liquorice and floral notes (orange blossom) with a beautiful minerality.

Palate
The velvety and well-structure palate exudes alluringly silky tannins as well as a subtle alliance between power and precision while preserving a lively freshness.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Canon la Gaffeliere has a fantastically exuberant nose of preserved plums, blueberry compote and black cherry pie with hints of menthol, mocha, Sichuan pepper and garrigue plus wafts of lavender and tilled soil. Full-bodied, concentrated and wonderfully decadent, it has a firm yet plush texture and just enough freshness in the background, finishing long with a menthol lift.
