A Glass of Facts

Stephan von Neipperg, the owner, also consults various other Bordeaux wine producers in Saint Emilion. Located on the pied de côte (foot of the slope) south of the medieval village of Saint-Émilion, Château Canon La Gaffelière's terroir consists of clay-limestone and clay-sand soil that is very permeable and particularly efficient at retaining heat.
