The history sanctioned Château Canon La Gaffeliére as one of the most famous Saint-Emilion wines. In 1971, the Earl Joseph-Hubert Von Neipperg, loyal to eight centuries of viticultural traditions in the family, acquired this property, the administration of which will be given in 1985 to his son Stephan. During a few years, heavy investments combined with a perfect knowledge of the Saint-Emilion soil led to the rebirth of Château Canon La Gaffelière. In 2014, the estate is certified in Organic Agriculture, which match their environmental idea.


Average age of vines: 50 years Soil type: Clay-limestone, clay-sand at the foot of the slope.

Thanks to the terroir specificity, the almost perfect balance of the grapes planted makes this wine very special. It is composed of 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, while the average Saint-Emilion is more around 70% Merlot. Also, the aging process is made on fine lees to express better the true quality of the wine. Wines are elaborated in an ultra-modern cellar within oak barrels. The overall wine-making process makes a generous and elegant cru that age really well. The vineyard is managed in the respect of the environment and that is how Château Canon La Gaffelière has been certified organic by FR-BIO-10.


Château Canon La Gaffelière offers a strong wine, very well structured, complex, pure and always elegant.

97 points James Suckling
"Aromas of dark plums, blueberries, bark, dried leaves, mahogany, licorice and nutmeg. It’s medium-to full-bodied with silky, ripe tannins. Layered and supple with a stylish and polished finish. Voluptuous. One of the best in a long time. Drink from 2026."

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2019 Canon la Gaffelière has turned out brilliantly, bursting from the glass with a dramatic bouquet of wild berries, blood orange, exotic spices, rose petals, violets and burning embers. Full-bodied, ample and layered, it's supple and perfumed, with a deep core of lively fruit, melting tannins and a long, saline finish. This contains the highest proportion of Cabernet Franc of any of Stephan Von Neipperg's wines, which no doubt helps to account for its singular personality. (WK)"

95 points Decanter
"I love the balance on display here, of powerful and softly whispering fruits, a tightrope of acidity and tannins giving structure. Great stuff, with the impact of 2018 but more freshness, although still with the signature glamour of a Neipperg wine in full flight. (JA)"

Château Canon La Gaffelière is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, and grilled dishes. Also very good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms, and pasta.
