- Tasting Notes
A massive wine, with a cigar box, chocolatey, thick, black currant and cherry-scented nose, this full-bodied wine is crammed with layers of fruit, extract, glycerin, and alcohol. Spicy yet rich, with high tannin, the 1995 Canon-La-Gaffeliere will need a minimum of 5-6 years of cellaring. The finish is long and rich, and the tannin sweet rather than astringent. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020.

Shows such wonderful clarity and class on the nose, with crushed raspberries, blackberries and just a hint of flowers. Full-bodied, with layers of ultrafine tannins and a long, long finish. Fantastic. Just coming around.–’95/’96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. 7,500 cases made.
