Commentaire Proprietor Comtes von Neipperg has done an incredible job with this estate, turning things around from a vegetal, diluted and undernourished wine in the 1970s and 1980s to something that has gotten stronger and strong ever since 1988. The dense ruby/purple 2012 offers pure blackcurrant and black cherry fruit along with some notes of Christmas spices and earth. It is full-bodied and opulent, with light tannins in the finish. This is a beauty of impeccable balance, great purity and texture. Kudos to von Neipperg, who rarely ever seems to make a mistake. Anticipated maturity: now-2030. The final blend tips the scales at 13.5% from an equal-part blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Commentaire du domaine Le Canon La Gaffelière 2012 est moins exotique que d'habitude, mais il présente de belles notes de cassis, de réglisse, de camphre et du sol de la forêt. Une complexité en plein essor et de bois bien intégré. Une beauté pure
