Located on the pied de côte (foot of the slope) south of the medieval village of Saint-Émilion, Château Canon La Gaffelière's terroir consists of clay-limestone and clay-sand soil that is very permeable and particularly efficient at retaining heat.

The choice of grape varieties is rather atypical for the appellation in light of the soil: almost a perfect 50/50 divide between Merlot and Cabernet. The Cabernets ripen early and remarkably well on Canon La Gaffelière's warm soil, adding power and aromatic complexity to Merlot's opulence to create wines of natural elegance and finesse.

Non-interventionist winemaking is practised and in such a way as to make the most of vintage character.

What the critics say:

97/100Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"The 2020 Canon La Gaffelière is heady, sumptuous and totally exotic. A wine of depth and striking intensity, the 2020 possesses tremendous balance right out of the gate. Ripe red plum, blood orange, pomegranate, spice and leather all meld together effortlessly. There's real presence and depth here. Time in the glass brings out the purity of the flavors. The blend is 55% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. I can't wait to see how this ages"

96/100James Suckling

"Such clarity to this with redcurrants, stems, fresh herbs, blackcurrants, and cherries on the nose. Medium to full body. Very tight, fine tannins. It builds nicely and has excellent length. Class and reality here. Needs three to five years."

17.5+/20Julia Harding MW, Jancis Robinson

"55% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. Organic certified by FR-BIO-10. Very dark with garnet rim. Dark, savoury power with restrained but intense black fruit and just a hint of Cab Franc leafiness. Dry finesse in a relatively powerful wine. Long and refined. Fresh, too. Not yet trying to please but it does. (JH)"
