2018 Canon La Gaffeliere 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 95+ points
Drink by: 2024 - 2044
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Canon la Gaffeliere out of the gate delivers a seductive nose of plum preserves, kirsch and Black Forest cake with nuances of lilacs, underbrush, Indian spices and dusty soil.
The medium to full-bodied palate is filled with black fruit preserves and loads of spicy accents, supported by chewy tannins and well-balanced freshness, finishing long and savory.
"Established in the 12th century in Germany's northern Wurttemberg Valley, the von Neipperg earldom comprised some thirty villages and market towns, including Schwaigern, which remains the family seat to this day. Ennobled during the Holy Roman Empire, they served the imperial family of Austria starting in the 16th century, contributing officers and diplomats for many years. Two figures stand out: Count Eberhard-Friedrich von Neipperg and Count Adam-Adalbert von Neipperg.
The family has made wine in Germany since the 13th century, and viticulture has never stopped being a central part of their life. Custodian of some 800 years of winegrowing tradition, the talented inheritor Stephan von Neipperg has brought the wines from these Châteaux to the pinnacle of quality."
