1999 Canon-La Gaffelière, St-Emilion

SKU #1002102 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Canon La Gaffeliere's opaque purple-colored 1999 is a strong effort for this vintage. It displays a sweet nose of pain grille, smoke, meats, graphite, blackberry, and cassis liqueur. The wine is full-bodied, deep, powerful, and rich, with sweet tannin and low acidity. This is a blockbuster effort for a delicate vintage such as 1999. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2016. Inner quote mark (4/2002)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good medium ruby. Aromas of plum, currant, game and leather. Silky-sweet and aromatic in the mouth, with lovely vinosity to frame the expressive flavors of roasted plum, currant, black cherry, minerals and dark chocolate. Firmly structured but quite suave, with fine tannins and very good length. Impressive for the vintage. Inner quote mark (6/2002)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers opulent aromas of decadent fruit and raisin, with dark chocolate and dried flowers. Full-bodied, featuring a decadent fruit character and superpolished tannins. A joy to drink.—'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Drink now. (Web-2010) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

This has nice forward, sweet fruit with exotic Asian spice flavors. Deep color. Definitely going to be ready earlier than the 1998.

If you're looking for a bottle of Bordeaux to drink right now, this delivers with some decanting. Notes of fresh-roasted coffee, orange zest, spice and mesquite complement a palate packed with gamey black fruit, espresso and tobacco notes on the finish.

Intense and lavish aromatics of cassis, cocoa, smokey mesquite BBQ, meat and bacon as well. It is rich, it is lush, the fruit quite sweet, yet it has structure and balance. Really quite delicious.
