Chateau Canon-La-Gaffeliere – St Emilion 1st Grand Cru 2015

RM762.00

SKU:
AWS431507
Composed of 55% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Franc and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in French oak, 55% new, for 17 months, the 2015 Canon la Gaffeliere features a deep garnet-purple color and a cedar-laced nose to begin, giving way to fragrant underlying scents of roses and violets with a core of crushed black currants, blackberries and Bing cherries plus hints of fallen leaves and dusty earth. Medium to full-bodied, the seductively perfumed red and black fruit fills the mouth, framed with plush tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing very long and minerally.

Count Stephan von Neipperg looks the part of timeless royalty. But this energetic vintner is a modernist, pushing his family’s properties to organic growing practices long thought too difficult to achieve in the maritime climate of Bordeaux. Canon-La Gaffeliere is von Neipperg’s flagship estate, situated on limestone and clay slopes below the plateau of St.-Emilion. This 2015 matches the classic scores earned by the 2010 and 2009, while its price makes it a great value in ageworthy Bordeaux.

About The Brand

Chateau Canon, a famous St.Emilion property is named after Jacques Kanon who bought the estate in 1760. Since 1996 it has been owned by Chanel, who also owns Chateau Rauzan-Segla in Margaux.  Located in the centre of the St.Emilion appellation, to the south-west of St-Emilion town, Canon has 18 hectares of vineyards split between the limestone plateau and the clay/loam cotes. They are planted with 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc. Vinification is traditional: up to 20 days in temperature-controlled wooden vats followed by 18 months’ maturation in oak barrels (70% new).  This wine needs cellaring to show at its best and mature Canon reeks of the soft, buttery Merlot grape as only the very top St-Emilions and Pomerols can. It is classified as a 1er Grand Cru Classe (B).
