2010 Canon-La-Gaffelière, St-Emilion 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1411238 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This takes the power of the vintage and puts it in its pocket for later, preferring instead to let mouthwatering briar, loganberry, mulberry and blackberry fruit strut its way forward, enlivened with roasted wood spice and supported by suavely but thoroughly embedded iron-tinged structure. Should cruise for two decades. Best from 2016 through 2035. *Top 100 Wines of 2013, No. 2* (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This wine shows wonderfully exotic tapenade, licorice, Christmas fruitcake, cedar wood, blackberry and sweet cherry notes in its strikingly provocative aromatics. On the palate, the wine is dense and full-bodied, with stunning concentration, purity, texture and length. It is full-bodied, silky smooth and seems to have more in common with the 2009 than one might expect, although the freshness and tannin levels are slightly more elevated. Drink it over the next 20+ years. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2013)

94-95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is tight and powerful. Solid frame of fruit and tannins. Curious about this. Like the 2009. This is 40% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A beautifully structured wine that is both ripe and elegant. It is bolstered by tannins, the acidity a great cutting edge. The black currant fruits are already delicious, although the tannins promise a great future. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good bright ruby-red. Expressive aromas of black raspberry, cassis, licorice, caramel and smoky oak are complicated by leather and game nuances. Large-scaled, rich and sweet but with harmonious acidity giving shape to the broad black and blue fruit flavors. Finishes rich and long, with surprising lift and plush, sweet tannins that reach the incisors. This is pure and balanced from the start and should age gracefully for a couple decades. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Dark crimson and an evolved rim. Good life and freshness. Real energy even if not the densest or ripest. Super refreshing. Quite sinewy – certainly not fat - with tannins very well covered and good persistence. 17/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2014)

Full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house with a solid line of grainy tannins and racy freshness supporting the dense fruit, finishing with compelling purity and great length." (3/2020)
