2003 Canon-La Gaffelière, St-Emilion

SKU #1022777 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lots of blackberry, vanilla and cherry on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Well-structured. Solid wine here. Best after 2010. Inner quote mark (3/2006)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is rich, ripe, with spicy tannins. The perfumes of violets give an intoxicating character to a black, fruity, balanced wine. Inner quote mark (4/2006)

89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark One of St.-Emilion’s most consistently high quality estates...the 2003 is a soft, relatively evolved style of wine. Up-front and forward, with a complex, perfumed (smoke, incense, fruitcake) style, it offers creme de cassis, cherry, plum, fig, incense, and cedar characteristics on the palate. The round, opulent attack quickly fades in the finish. Nevertheless, it possesses plenty of appeal, and is the most accessible Canon-La-Gaffeliere I have tasted. Drink it over the next decade. Inner quote mark (4/2006)

K&L Notes

Clyde Beffa, K&L's Bordeaux Buyer: "Reserved style. At UGC tasting it was very fruity and meaty on the nose. Some smoky nuances. Soft and supple. In balance and elegant style. A bit dry finish, but very good overall. *.5" (04/04)
