Château Canon-la-Gaffelière 2009

Located at the foot of the hill south of the medieval village of Saint-Emilion, the terroir of Château Canon La Gaffelière is composed of clay-limestone and clay-sandy soils, very filtering, particularly receptive to heat.

Grape Varietals & Region: 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Due to the nature of the soils, the grape varieties have an atypical structure with regard to the appellation, characterized by a perfect balance between Merlot and Cabernet. On this terroir, where maturation takes place very early, the Cabernets flourish remarkably, bringing to the opulence of the Merlot a power and aromatic complexity that underpin the natural elegance and finesse of the wines of Canon La Gaffelière.

Taste Profile: This is very fresh and multidimensional on the nose and palate. Aromas of blackberry, grilled meat and fresh mushrooms follow through to a full body, with a solid core of firm yet silky tannins and a chocolate, berry and meaty finish. Luscious and opulent. Tight and beautiful.

Winemaking Process: Manual harvest, in crates. Double sorting before and after destemming. No treading. Arrival of the harvest by conveyor belt. In temperature-controlled wooden vats for 28 to 35 days depending on the vintage. Extraction by pneumatic punching. In new barrels (up to 80%) on fine lees. Fining and filtration if necessary, depending on the vintage. 15 to 18 months depending on the vintage.
