The 2019 Canon La Gaffelière is utterly fabulous. All the elements come together in a Saint-Émilion that dazzles with its completeness and total sense of balance. Raspberry jam, blood orange, spice, lavender and dried flowers infuse the 2019 with captivating nuance. La Gaffelière is a rich, potent wine that exudes class and pedigree right out of the gate. In a word: superb. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Aromas of dark plums, blueberries, bark, dried leaves, mahogany, licorice and nutmeg. It’s medium-to full-bodied with silky, ripe tannins. Layered and supple with a stylish and polished finish. Voluptuous. One of the best in a long time. Drink from 2026. - James Suckling

The 2019 Château Canon-La-Gaffelière is another brilliantly perfumed wine in the vintage that shines for its complexity, finesse, and nuances. Giving up awesome notes of red and black currants, tobacco, exotic flowers, cedarwood, and loamy earth, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, beautifully polished, integrated tannins, no hard edges, and a great, great finish. This is serious juice that warrants at least 4-5 years of bottle age and will evolve for 30 to 40 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2019 Canon la Gaffelière has turned out brilliantly, bursting from the glass with a dramatic bouquet of wild berries, blood orange, exotic spices, rose petals, violets and burning embers. Full-bodied, ample and layered, it's supple and perfumed, with a deep core of lively fruit, melting tannins and a long, saline finish. This contains the highest proportion of Cabernet Franc of any of Stephan Von Neipperg's wines, which no doubt helps to account for its singular personality. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Canon la Gaffeliere slowly unfurls to offer alluring perfumed notes of Morello cherries, menthol, anise, and cinnamon toast over a plum preserves and blueberry pie core. Full-bodied, rich, and spicy in the mouth, it has a velvety texture and soft acidity, finishing with a spicy warmth. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Independent

I love the balance on display here, of powerful and softly whispering fruits, a tightrope of acidity and tannins giving structure. Great stuff, with the impact of 2018 but more freshness, although still with the signature glamour of a Neipperg wine in full flight. - Jane Anson, Decanter\

Pepper, bay and roasted tobacco notes give this a distinct persona out of the gate, while sous bois and mulled plum, black currant and black cherry fruit flavors fill in behind. Singed juniper and alder hints add form through the finish. Serious kudos for its range and character, but may be a touch too old school for some folks. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2024 through 2038. 5,833 cases made. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Tasted blind. Sweet, exotic, black-fruited nose. Heady and extremely floral. Very distinctive! Candied rose petals. Rather nice! But not that intense. Rich and smooth. Long. - Jancis Robinson
