Château Canon-La-Gaffelière

Winemaking at Château Canon-La-Gaffelière can be dated back to the 17th century, although its name is derived from the french word gaffet, in reference to the leper colony that was sited on the land. It was bought in 1971 by Joseph-Hubert von Neipperg and the family has significantly improved its quality and reputation. They also own several other Bordeaux wineries including the ultra-pricey, garage wine, < a href="/search?searchtext=la%20mondotte">La Mondotte. Nestled at the base of the St-Emilion slopes, just down the hill from Ausone, Canon-La-Gaffelière’s well-placed vineyards grow a mix of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Thanks to the work of Stephan von Neipperg, the estate is now certified organic and since 2000 has undergone an extensive replanting program. In the winery, emphasis is placed on as little interference as possible to make a wine which authentically expresses the vintage. Today Canon-La-Gaffellière is renowned for its elegance and finesse.
