      The Château

       

      Château Canon La Gaffelière is a property in Saint-Émilion, producing a wine that is known for its elegance and finesse. In 2012, it was promoted to Premier Grand Cru Classé status.

      The 19.5-hectare (48-acre) vineyard is a mix of clay-limestone and clay-sand soils, with predominantly sandy topsoils. These characteristics are well-suited to the grape varieties planted here: 55 percent Merlot, 40 percent Cabernet Franc and 5 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. At harvest, the grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed, then fermented without crushing in temperature-controlled wooden vats. They are then aged in mostly new oak barrels for up to 20 months.

      Canon La Gaffelière began as two separate estates, Canon Boitard and La Gaffeliere Boitard, in the 19th Century. They were eventually combined, and bought by the Von Neipperg family in 1971. Current proprietor Count Stephan von Neipperg also owns La Mondotte, Clos de L'Oratoire and Château Peyreau in Saint-Émilion, plus a handful of other estates around Bordeaux.

       

      Current owner: Vineyards Counts von Neipperg
      Soils: Clay-limestone. Clay-sandy at the foot of the coast
      Farming: Manual, in crates. Double sorting before and after scraping. No crushing. Arrival of the harvest by conveyor belt
      Vines: On average 50 years of age
