von Neipperg


The moment I read and saw video of Count Stephan von Neipperg, I knew I had to have his wines. He makes an absolutely amazing St-Emilion wine, but it's this one, from my beloved Cotes de Castillon that's more financially feasible.

The Count is an aristocrat in every way, from his clothing, to his mannerisms, to his charming accent. I believe in his philosophy about biodynamics
, about cabernet franc, and about mature claret. Next year. Give me a year, a decent vintage, and I will try my hardest to get a bottle of Canon-La Gaffeliere to tuck away in the cellar.
