CANON LA GAFFELIERE 2012 - SAINT-EMILION
The terroir of Château Canon La Gaffelière is located at the foot of the medieval village of Saint-Emilion.
The soils are clay-limestone and sandy, well filtering and receptive to heat.
Thus, the grape variety has an atypical structure compared to the appellation represented by a perfect balance between Merlot and Cabernet.
The Cabernets develop wonderfully, bringing power and aromatic complexity to the opulence of the Merlot, producing wines of natural elegance and finesse.
The plot lots are vinified in a homogeneous way.
The winemaking phases take place smoothly to express the best of the harvest. The aging is done on fine lees to bring out the qualities specific to the wine.
Respect for the vines is essential and the interventions minimal in order to let each vintage express itself fully.
