4 stars " Wonderfully poised with great purity of fruit. Deep colour. Honest, fresh, floral nose (55% Cabernet Franc in the blend). Smooth, suave texture with good middle fruit, ripe tannins and persistent, linear line. Almost Burgundian quality about the fruit." Best 2010-2020

89 points "One of St.-Emilion’s most consistently high quality estates, particularly since the late 1980s, this 50-acre estate is situated on clay and limestone soils in the appellation’s southern sector. The vineyard consists of 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Performing slightly better from bottle than it did from cask, the 2003 is a soft, relatively evolved style of wine. Up-front and forward, with a complex, perfumed (smoke, incense, fruitcake) style, it offers creme de cassis, cherry, plum, fig, incense, and cedar characteristics on the palate. The round, opulent attack quickly fades in the finish. Nevertheless, it possesses plenty of appeal, and is the most accessible Canon-La-Gaffeliere I have tasted. Drink it over the next decade." Best 2006-2016
