Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
Premier Grand Cru Classé
Counts von Neipperg
Located on the slope and the foot of the slope south of the medieval village of Saint-Émilion, Château Canon-La-Gaffelière has belonged to the Counts von Neipperg since 1971.

The terroir consists of clay-limestone and clay-sand soil that is particularly efficient at capturing and retaining heat. The choice of grape varieties is rather atypical for the appellation in light of the soil: almost a perfect 50/50 divide between Merlot and Cabernet.

Certified for organic viticulture since the 2014 vintage, the estate produces elegant wines year in and year out. Remarkably
well-structured and complex, Canon-La-Gaffelière is pure and unfailingly elegant, reflecting the uncompromising way in which it is made.

Representing some eight centuries of family winegrowing tradition, Count Stephan von Neipperg has succeeded in promoting
Château Canon-La-Gaffelière to Premier Grand Cru Classé de
Saint-Émilion status thanks to a winegrowing philosophy that gives priority not only to quality, but also respect for an outstanding terroir.
