Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2008
Very intense and powerful with blackberry and chocolate aromas. Full-bodied with fabulous velvety tannins and a long long finish. This coats every inch of the palate. Gorgeous and stylish. Best after 2017. 5750 cases... Very intense and powerful with blackberry and chocolate aromas. Full-bodied with fabulous velvety tannins and a long long finish. This coats every inch of the palate.

This fragrant, lush, seductive wine offers up plum, Christmas spices and crème de cassis. This dense garnet/purple wine also has loads of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, terrific aromatics, a full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful purity, texture, and a long, long finish. Once again, the Comte von Neipperg and his winemaking consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt have hit a home run in this vintage. This beauty is approachable, if not drinkable already, and should continue to evolve for 10-15 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

The Château Canon-la-Gaffelière 2005 has a gorgeous, voluptuous bouquet with small dark cherries, red plum, star anis and cassis. There is an inviting warmth to this nose, quite audacious but never over-powering. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine line of acidity. This is extremely well balanced, very pure and refined with hints of Asian spice and white pepper furnishing the long finish. There is a sense of completeness to this Saint Emilion and it will continue to give pleasure for 15 or 20 years, maybe longer.

Reticent aromas of red fruits coffee roasted meat and mocha; a bit low-toned today. Superripe sweet and densely packed; large-scaled for a wine from this property but quite closed today hinting at an almost roasted ripeness. Atypically deep cabernet franc here. Finishes with broad tannins and lovely floral lift leaving behind a captivating violet perfume in the empty glass. Very unevolved wine in need of a decade of patience and likely to merit a higher score at its peak.
