Reviews for 2006 Canon la Gaffeliere Bordeaux Blend

WS 93
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2009
Shows black truffle blackberry and tea leaf on the nose. Full-bodied with extremely well-integrated tannins and a racy velvety-textured finish. A beauty for the vintage. Best after 2014.

Dense lush sweet and fine-grained with a wonderfully pliant silky texture devoid of rough edges. Utterly seamless savory wine but with no shortage of vinosity or energy. Finishes suave and very long. 92 points

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London.The 2006 Château Canon-la-Gaffelière has a relatively opulent bouquet compared to the 2006 Les Grandes Murailles, with scents of cassis, cranberry, leather and roasted herbs, demonstrating a little more "guts" than its peers (as Canon-la-Gaffelière is wont to do). The palate is medium-bodied with furry tannin, quite plush in the mouth with tart red cherry fruit, strawberry, morels and a vein of tobacco towards the finish that carries commendable weight. This is drinking well after ten years and should provide another five years of drinking pleasure. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin
