Canon la Gaffeliere 2002

Chateau Canon la Gaffeliere


A medium-bodied, up-front, pleasant effort, the 2002 offers herbaceous notes intermixed with cherries, licorice, fruitcake, and spice box. With good concentration, soft tannin, and attractive, subtle spicy new oak characteristics, it should be consumed over the next 7-8 years. *** The flagship estate of Stephan von Neipperg, the 2002 Canon-La-Gaffeliere outperforms its two sibling rivals, Clos de l’Oratoire and the rare as well as very expensive garage wine, La Mondotte. This offering exhibits a saturated blue/plum/purple color in addition to a big, spicy perfume of smoke, graphite, coffee, black currants, and new oak. The flavors add cocoa as well as an assortment of black fruits and licorice to the mix. With wonderful concentration and succulence as well as a moderately tannic finish, it will be at its finest between 2006-2020.
