Ch. Canon La Gaffelière (0.75 L)
NM: Well-structured with fine balance and poise. Quite minerally with well-integrated oak. A very classy wine this year. Later at the UGC in November 2002: deep ruby. Closed nose. Cranberry. Quite oaky. Very tannic and austere and is certainly at an adolescent stage. Unattractive nose but this is a heavyweight St. Emilion. Hope the tannins are not too coarse and thick. Needs long time.
