Château Canon-La-Gaffelière

Château Canon-La-Gaffelière, 2009

RRP £80

Like its owner, the inimitable Stephan von Neipperg, this wine wears a colourful jumper around its shoulders. In this case purple, with a sweet, extracted, almost soapy bouquet of Parma Violets. It is tender and inviting; nubile. Elegant and restrained, the wine is supple and poised in the mouth with almost indiscernible weight and silken, stroking texture. The subtle, beguiling flavour profile lingers well after swallowing.
