Case Size: 12 x 0.75. The Aiguilhe 2013 is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc picked between 27 September and 9 October. It has a lifted floral bouquet that is well defined and vibrant. The palate is crisp and fresh with a fine citric thread and a touch of bitter lemon on the finish. This is a more tannic Coast of Castillon that might lack a little length, but it is well crafted.

    THE STORY: The vines, an average of 45 years old, are deeply rooted in the soil and absorb all the goodness in the terroir. They are mostly replaced individually rather than plot by plot (which maintains the average age). The last major replanting dates back to 1986. Mass selection is practised. This is especially useful in order to perpetuate the precious old Cabernet Franc vines. It not only maintains the vineyard's genetic heritage, but also its unique balance. Remarkably well-structured, always elegant, and unfailingly long on the palate, Château Canon La Gaffelière eloquently illustrates Stephan von Neipperg's new orientation.
