One of the leading Chateaus in Saint Emilion is certified organic producing classy, remarkably well-structured, complex, pure, and always elegant wines.
Château Canon la Gaffelière which owns 20 hectares exceptional terroirs on the southern slopes of Saint-Emilion, was acquired by the von Neipperg family in early 1970. Coming from a long winemaking tradition, since the 13th century, Niepperg family carried the Chateau to premier cru status. Starting from 1985 with the expertise of famous oenologist Stéphane Derenoncourt as a cellar master, the Chateau has been transformed to one of the stars not only of the appellation but also Bordeaux.
The wine has a high percentage of Cabernet Franc adding more complexity and fine tannins. On the palate, Canon La Gaffeliere has cinnamon and sweet spices in addition to the wide aromatic palette of black fruits, floral and earthy notes. The wine is smooth and very attractive suitable for long ageing potential.
