Huge colour here too. Interesting nose: more spice and texture, less simple fruit. Structured and fine, dense and rich, but also a fine pure wine. Fruitcake on the finish. Very long. L&S (May 2017)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Made in a structured, tannic, restrained style (representative of the vintage's overall personality), this medium to full-bodied 2001 exhibits scents of espresso roast, cedar, chocolate, black currants, and cherries. With sweet but noticeable tannin, exceptional multilayered flavors, and excellent texture, elegance as well as purity, it will be at its finest between 2005-2013. Rating: 92-92 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate,

Now this has a lovely bouquet, quite generous with dark plum, Hoi Sin, raspberry leaf and a touch of leather. This is now firmly moving into its secondary aroma stage. Very fine delineation, fresh and enticing. The palate is medium-bodied with a Burgundian texture on the entry. This has very fine tannins, a feminine Saint Emilion with tart red cherries, sage and thyme, then the structure makes its presence felt towards the finish with notes of sandalwood and mocha. This is definitely the finest bottle of Canon-la-Gaffeliere that I have met Rating: 91-91 Neal Martin, (May 2011)
