Situated on the southern slope in the village of Saint Emilion. Stephan von Neipperg acquired the estate in 1971 and became the “custodian of 800 years of winegrowing tradition.”
Cannon La Gaffeliere:
With a composite of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, this deep purplish wine has pure black liqueur-like fruit that stains the glass. Rich espresso and dark mocha are intertwined with supple tannins and plenty of finesse. While there is a real sense of power within, this wine flaunts its lushness and balance as it remains approachable.
Clos De L’Oratoire: Deep purple with undertones of Cabernet Franc that reveal a briary bouquet of mixed berries. Beneath there is a garigue element of provincial herbs. The tannins are ripe and finely grained. While this wine may take days or weeks to fully open, the path will lead you along a very enjoyable journey.
