Ch Canon-La-Gaffeliere, St Emilion 2020
97 POINTS: Jeb Dunnuck
97 POINTS: Antonio Galloni
"Quite possibly the finest vintage of this cuvée I've tasted, the 2020 Château Canon-La-Gaffelière offers that rare mix of richness and elegance that makes this vintage so compelling. Classic notes of cassis, ripe black cherries, spring flowers, and truffly earth define the aromatics, and it's full-bodied and perfectly balanced, with beautiful tannins and a great finish. This is another stunningly good Saint-Emilion that will benefit from 4-6 years of bottle age and have 2-3 decades of overall longevity."

"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."
