2020 Canon la Gaffeliere FUTURES



Critical Acclaim for Canon La Gaffeliere:

“95 – 97 points.

“Lots of blue fruits, leafy herbs, chocolate, and earthy goodness emerge from the 2020 Château Canon-LaGaffeliere, a medium to full-bodied, dense, focused, elegant Saint-Emilion that needs plenty of air to show at its best. The purity of fruit is remarkable, and while it starts out tight and focused, it blossoms with air, showing a more expansive, layered, rich yet still fresh texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. It’s a thrilling Saint-Emilion readers should snatch up.” – Jeb Dunnck

“95 – 97 points.

“The strong floral character is what you initially notice. From there you find mint, herbs, spice, smoke,

tobacco, and red berries on the nose. The wine shows a beautiful, vibrancy, with silky, elegant, flamboyant

textures on the palate with a touch of chalk in the endnote. The wine lingers with all its ripe, sweet, plums

and cherries in the finish. Blending 55% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, if you

can wait at least 5-7 years before pulling a cork, this is going to offer superb drinking for 20-25 years after

that.” – Wine Cellar Insider

“95 – 96 points.

“Very refined and polished with minerally, almost salty character. Full body and beautiful, compact tannins.

Racy finish. Excellent drive to this at the end.” – James Suckling
