>   1990 Canon la Gaffeliere - Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France

1990 Canon la Gaffeliere : underwood flavours (autumn leaves, moss) which are starting to cover 1990 Canon la Gaffeliere's remaining red fruit. Generally smooth but tannins are still very present - almost a little dry. Great fruit maturity but the body lacks a bit of acuracy and complexity. I think it is time to start drinking 90 Canon la Gaffelière as it's seems to be currently reaching the top of its maturity cycle. 87/100. 

>   1999 Canon la Gaffelière - Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France

07-april: Splendid luminous ruby hue. Delicious aromas with smooth notes of cocoa, berries and soft spices. A suave, mouth filling Canon la Gaffeliere. Seductive, balanced finish without any hard edges. Long and round. If only all the 1999s could come out so nicely!

>   1999 Canon la Gaffelière - Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France

1999 Canon la Gaffeliere : 40% Cabernet Franc harvested shortly before the hail poured down on the St Emilion region. Berry nose with hints of wood and alcohol. Closed and austere structure with roasted tannins. 1999 Canon la Gaffelière is a bit difficult to assess at this stage. Will possibly turn out to be an excellent wine in a couple of years (2006 - 2010). 86/100 

>   2000 Canon la Gaffelière - Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France

60% Merlot - 36% Cabernet Franc - 4% Cabernet Sauvignon
2000 Canon la Gaffeliere : light raspberries nose. Gradual attack in the mouth, leading smoothly to fine red fruits. However, 2000 Canon la Gaffelière seems to lack depth and power, is somewhat one-dimensional and a little diffuse. 86/100

>   2001 Canon la Gaffelière - Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France
2001 Canon la Gaffeliere : fresh and fruity nose of bilberries, light smoke - tobacco and vanilla. After a few minutes in the glass 2001 Canon la Gaffelière gains sweetness on the core body showing a tight texture and soft tannins. Ripe fruit and long finish. Faint barnyard notes on the nose balanced with a light acidic taste. 2001 Canon la Gaffeliere is basically a good wine, although the rustic character of 2001 Canon la Gaffeliere may not please to everyone. 86/100
