Château Canon-la-Gaffelière

The Von Neippurg counts, descendants of Franconian nobility, first planted vines on their estate in the 13th century. Today, Count Stephan von Neippurg manages the family's four estates in St.-Emilion. Château Canon-la-Gaffelière is a St.-Emilion Grand Cru Classé and is made with 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is fermented primarily in new French oak for 17 to 19 months with 5,000 to 7,500 cases being produced each year. The Château Canon-la-Gaffelière vineyard consists of 19.5 hectares on the southern slopes overlooking the town of St.-Emilion. The vineyard has a clay-limestone base with sandy soil at the foot of the hillside.
