2012 Château Canon La Gaffelière, Grand Cru Classé St-Emilion

2012 Château Canon La Gaffelière, Grand Cru Classé St-Emilion

The medium depth of colour means that the appearance is, for once, a very accurate guide of things to come. On the nose, Stephan Van Neipperg’s blend of 50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Franc fermented in 80% new oak is dominated by a core of rich and sweet black fruit, with more than a hint of violets lifting the aromatics to much more elegant heights. On the palate this is silky-smooth, round and juicy with plenty of flesh and tight yet restrained tannins. Very well balanced and offering a pitch-perfect alliance between richness and elegance, this study in completeness is absolutely delicious.
