Château Canon-La-Gaffelière 2016  – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, powerful, delicate and offers sweetness as well as minerality. It reveals slight hints of blackberry, black berries and gray pepper associated with discreet hints of flowers, ripe/fresh cherry, licorice, toasted oak as well as a very discreet hint of graphite. The palate is elegant, well-balanced, beautifully powerful (full in finesse) and offers a beautiful silky matter, a great vivacity, a beautiful minerality, an acid frame, tension, a nice deepness, a very nice finesse as well as a beautiful roundness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry, fresh/ripe black berries/cassis associated with a hint of fresh/ripe red fruits (cherry…), toasted oak and spices. Tannins are elegant, fine and nicely mature. Beautiful and gourmande persistance with slight toasted/caramelized notes, chocolate as well as a very discreet hint of salinity. (2027+)
