Château Canon-La-Gaffelière 2008 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, 1er Grand Cru Classé B

The nose is elegant and offers a beautiful gourmandise, richness as well as a beautiful finesse. It reveals notes of fleshy strawberry, blackberry associated with fine touches of caramelization, incense and small notes of ripe raspberry, spices, small toasted notes as well as a very discreet hint of violet and an imperceptible hint of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fresh, well-balanced, fruity and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful suavity as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, wild fleshy strawberry and small notes of crushed cassis associated with small / fine touches of caramelization, hazelnut, graphite / incense as well as very discreet hints of spices. Good length.
