2009 Canon-La-Gaffelière, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $150)

SKU #1055050 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Porcini mushrooms, with dark and ripe fruits. Turns to licorice and violets. Full body, with round and soft tannins and a long delicious finish. The texture is gorgeous. So much going on in the glass. Try after 2018. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is well-cloaked for now in roasted vanilla and espresso notes, but there’s ample, fleshy fig sauce and mulled blackberry fruit in reserve. The finish sports a long, melted licorice snap feel. Dense, but beautifully polished and pure. For the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2030. *Top 100 Wines of 2012, Highly Recommended* Inner quote mark (3/2012)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark An intriguing blend of nearly 50% Merlot, a whopping 35% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon (a somewhat unusual combination for this region), the 2009 reminds me of the 1990. A big, inky/purple-tinged wine with just over 14% natural alcohol, it exhibits exotic, flamboyant aromas of espresso roast, incense, sweet black cherries, black currants, licorice, asphalt, barbecue smoke, Christmas fruitcake and herbs. Full-bodied with silky tannins, luscious fruit, a hedonistic yet complex personality, low acidity, noticeable tannin and enviable purity, this head-turning beauty can be enjoyed over the next 15-20 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2012)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark One of the peculiarities of St.-Émilion’s classification is that Canon la Gaffelière is not classed in the top rung. Because, as this wine shows, it produces superb wines. This is ripe while so elegant, with great intensity and sweet perfumes. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (2/2012)
