Full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house with a solid line of grainy tannins and racy freshness supporting the dense fruit, finishing with compelling purity and great length.-LPB collapse

Should cruise for two decades. Best from 2016 through 2035. – JM collapse

(JS 94-95 points) This is tight and powerful. Solid frame of fruit and tannins. Curious about this. Like the 2009. This is 40% Cabernet Franc 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot.

There is a lot of energy here, very lifted with wet limestone percolating through the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, spicy red berry fruit and a harmonious, silky texture. There is prudent extraction rendering this Canon-la-Gaffeliere very approachable in style, but perhaps without quite the structure on the elegant finish. collapse

It feels a little Left Bank in style with light pencil shaving aromas developing. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins, a fine bead of acidity, nicely structured with a grippy, quite spicy and forthright finish that feels reassuringly persistent. Very promising, but it needs another couple of years in bottle. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal. -- Neal Martin collapse
