Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: 97 (Feb. 2018)

Composed of 55% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Franc and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in French oak, 55% new, for 17 months, the 2015 Canon la Gaffeliere features a deep garnet-purple color and a cedar-laced nose to begin, giving way to fragrant underlying scents of roses and violets with a core of crushed black currants, blackberries and Bing cherries plus hints of fallen leaves and dusty earth. Medium to full-bodied, the seductively perfumed red and black fruit fills the mouth, framed with plush tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing very long and minerally.

Vinous - Score: 94 (Jul. 2019)

The 2015 Canon-la-Gaffelière has an open and slightly savory bouquet that is well defined with light fig aromas developing in the glass, dovetailing into more floral/violet notes with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, fine acidity, quite fresh but tightly wound at the moment. I appreciate the brightness and energy on the finish, but it will need time in bottle. Bon vin!
