Reviews for 2011 Canon la Gaffeliere Bordeaux Blend

WS 93
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Exhibits very pretty red currant violet and red licorice notes with a sleek mineral-tinged finish. This is also sneakily long relying more on purity than power. This could move up if it puts on weight.-J.M.

Probably the flagship estate of visionary Stephan von Neipperg, the 2011 Canon La Gaffeliere is less exotic and open-knit than usual, but it exhibits beautiful notes of black currants, licorice, camphor and forest floor... Probably the flagship estate of visionary Stephan von Neipperg, the 2011 Canon La Gaffeliere is less exotic and open-knit than usual, but it exhibits beautiful notes of black currants, licorice, camphor and forest floor. A burgeoning complexity as well as medium to full body and well-integrated wood are found in this pure beauty. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. - Robert Parker

Racy and fine with a lovely pure fruit. The Cabernet Franc in this is really coming through. Minerally and fine. Pretty wine. 60% Merlot 32% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon.

60% merlot 32% cabernet franc and 8% cabernet sauvignon from a 19.5-hectare parcel on the slopes of the limestone plateau. Vines are over 45 years old planted in a mixture of limestone clay and sand. Purple pinkish color... 60% merlot 32% cabernet franc and 8% cabernet sauvignon from a 19.5-hectare parcel on the slopes of the limestone plateau. Vines are over 45 years old planted in a mixture of limestone clay and sand. Purple pinkish color. Aromas of roasted vegetables blackberry and earthy mushroom are complemented by grilled meat and sweet vanilla. The palate reveals fine grained tannins along with a high level of acidity yet remains balanced. Lovely flavors of truffle and sweet red fruit inform the lengthy finish. Enjoy 2015-2035.
