Château Canon La Gaffelière
Saint Emilion Grand cru
Grand Cru Classé
Located south at the foot of the medieval village of Saint-Emilion slope, Château Canon La Gaffelière’s unusual terroir consists of clay-limestone and sandy-clay soil that is receptive to the sun’s warmth. The vineyard therefore has an atypical breakdown of grape varieties for the appellation: 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Entitled to organic certification since the 2014 vintage, this very “Cabernet” terroir gives Château Canon La Gaffelière a complex character. Distinguished, elegant, fruity and spicy, with a very mineral flavour, the wine has an unquestionably unique personality.

Accueil très chaleureux et sympathique visite et explications très instructives un grand merci
It would have been nice to have tasted a bit more of a range of wines. It also would have been very nice to be able to purchase. We would have been willing to pay a small fee for more options.
Our hostess was charming. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves from the welcome to the tasting.
Very nice and professional guide
The tour was absolutely exceptional! Our host was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. It was one of the best wine tours we have been to in all of Bordeaux!
Exelent wine estate with a professional wine guide. Alexander Mair
Over all, it is a great experience. Our tour guide lady is excellent and very knowledge of wine.
We loved our experience touring and tasting! It gave the impression of a small, family owned vineyard but with such an impressive name.
The tour guide was excellent, taking time to explain details and showcase what this producer have to offer (including wines from the other vineyards owned by the family) There are no direct sales at the chateaux, however, I will be definitely keep on buying their wine in the US either through merchants or via auction.
Best tour of the trip.
La plus intéressante des différentes visites de propriétés
It is kind of hard to find the Château, as the entrance sign is quite small.
Everything was very good during our visit. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable.
Cette visite du chateau nous a été recommandé et j'avoue que nous n'avons pas été décus!! Merci à Emilie et Magali pour ce bon moment!!!
I bought 3 bottles, total payment was 123.5 euro. It means that I was very satisfied from this visiting.
Amelia was gracious and outstanding in her information. This was the highlight for my husband of our tours and of our wine tastings. He thought Canon was the best of all the wines we drank over two weeks.
This was one of the best and most informative visits we had during our trip, thank you!
Guide was fantastic - gave a highly personalized tour and a led a very informed tasting. Wonderful tour.
excluent tour, very professional!
A wonderful visit and I look forward to returning in the future.
Un Grand merci au domaine et specialement au comte, qui nous a guide lui mème Philipp Perren
We were very much satisfied with the guided tour and wine tasting. The guide was very friendly and we also learnt a lot. Though the tour provably took a bit more time than usual as I needed to translate for my family, she was very patient and kind. I can further recommend to visit the winery.
Amazing visit to a nice chateau! We were really pleased by the great wines and the friendliness and hospitality of our guide.
OUR HOSTESS WAS EXCEPTIONAL
It was the best (most detailed) wine tour among 5 we had in Bordeaux (3 in Pauillac, 2 in Saint-Emilion) Very nice and detailed explanation, guide spent more time for us than even scheduled. Merci
Excellent and very completepresentation by the guide.
C'était une des visites les plus intéressantes que nous ayons effectuées
Visite très complète par une personne passionnée, je recommande vivement
Excellente visite, un peu plus cher que les autres mes les degustations valaient le coup!
Trés satisfaits de notre visite. Tout était parfait. Guide trés professionelle et compétente dans un cadre magnifique. Merci beaucoup!
Wonderful tour! Had a very hard time finding the place as the sign was missing, however the tour guide was very patient and waited for us even though we were almost an hour late.
Although the chateau was difficult to find and we arrived late for our appointment, the guided tour was recommenced for our benefit and for this we are very thankful. Our guide was superb and cannot be faulted in any way. She was friendly, knowledgable, and passionate about the wines and made us feel very comfortable to ask questions. The tasting itself was not rushed and we had time to talk about the wine. The whole experience was very enjoyable and one of our lasting memories of our day in st Emilion. We thank you so very much!
Nous avons eu une visite privée faute d'inscription supplémentaire. Franchement chapeau. Tout à été fantastique, accueil et explications précises à nos questions.
A very enjoyable visit Excellent hospitality and very friendly and informative time Top marks!
