Château Canon La Gaffelière, 1er grand cru classé B 2019

RRP €70

Soft, sweet and yielding nose with black figs, spice cake and gingerbread. A beautiful entry fragrant with pot pourri gives way to a slightly bitter, woodsy note that moulds all that softness into clearer contours. Lively acidity compensates for tannins that are somewhat woolly and loose.
