Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere
Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere started out life with two seperate names. It was at one time known as Canon Boitrd and La Gaffeliere-Boitard. This was back in the 19th century. In time, the double naming was made easier. The solution was to combine the names, which created the moniker we know today as Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere. Skipping ahead to the modern era, in 1969, Count Joseph Hubert von Neipperg purchased Canon La Gaffeliere in 1971. The von Neipperg family remain the owners today. Stephan von Neipperg manages Canon La Gaffeliere as well as several other St. Emilion estates owned by the family.
The 19.5 hectare Canon La Gaffeliere vineyard is planted ti 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. They have old vines averaging close to 50 years of age.

On average, 5,000 cases of Canon La Gaffeliere are produced each year. There is a second wine, Cote Migon La Gaffeliere. Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere was upgraded in the official 2012 St. Emilion Classification to Premier Grand Cru Classe B.
