Tasting Notes and Scores

95-98 WS

This pulls a lot of red and black currant, fig and boysenberry pâte de fruit notes together, wraps them with a brambly thread and then drives them through an anise- and apple wood-edged finish. It’s all tightly wound, but it’s all there for the long haul. Really, really solid. - James Molesworth (WineSpectator.com, April 2017)

Wine Spectator

95-96 JS

Lovely silky texture and dark fruit to this wine underlining richness and decadence. Medium to full body and a long finish. - March 2017

James Suckling

The 2016 Canon La Gaffelière has an outstanding, very detailed and complex bouquet of cedar-tinged black fruit and touches of truffle, almost Graves-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet ripe tannin and rounded in the mouth. The new oak is quite conspicuous at the moment, though it should be fully assimilated with bottle age. This wine is driven by the Cabernet Franc, at one of the highest percentages in recent years, lending a great deal of freshness. Give this five or six years in bottle. A fabulous Canon-la-Gaffelière. - vinous.com, Jan 2019

Neal Martin

93-96 AG

The 2016 Canon La Gaffelière is a huge, voluptuous wine with no hard edges and exceptional balance. Often in the early going, the Merlot and Cabernet Franc elements are easily discernible, but in 2016 all the elements are wonderfully fused together. It will be interesting to see if this powerful wine finds a bit more finesse over time. The 2016 was even more impressive when I tasted separate components from barrel in January 2017. In 2016, the wine spent 30-32 days on the skins and will see approximately 60% new oak. Tasted three times. - vinous.com, April 2017

Antonio Galloni

91-93 BI

Located on the outskirts of St Emilion, the vineyards of Canon La Gaffeliere sport an unusually large amount of Cabernet Franc which perfectly suits the clay-heavy soil. A little tight and closed but giving up a little perfume and black fruit. Brooding intensity in the mouth, rather a lot of oak impact which masks the plump black cherry and blackcurrant fruit. Sticks out a little on the finish, so will need time to integrate. - April 2017

Bordeaux Index

17/20 JR

Dark crimson. Very rich sweet nose slightly reminiscent of the 'modernist' style. Rather thick and heavy. Suffers from being tasted immediately after the superior and sophisticated Ch Canon. Rather drying end. Good effort. Sincere but a tad vieux jeu. Hint of meatiness, then slightly drying tannins but good energy. Drink 2025-2040. - jancisrobinson.com, April 2017
