Canon Fronsac, Libournais

Château Canon

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Delectable Wine

The 2015 Canon has a tightly wound bouquet with mineral rich black fruit, raspberry coulis, rose
petal and desiccated orange peel. It takes time to come together, but it does. The palate is well defined, very focused with fine minerality. This is discreet but beautifully balanced, clean and precise with a sense of energy and precision on the finish. It is less showy than its peers at the moment, which
explains why I am more parsimonious with my score. Yet the potential is locked inside this wine and it will aspire toward perfection with a decade in bottle.Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. (Neal Martin, Vinous, July 2019)

Croix Canon Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Textbook St Emilion, powerful and velvety dark red fruit. Graphite, oaky tannins and a bit of forest floor. Drinking perfectly now after 20 minute decant (was slightly awkward at 1st). Impressive QPR. — a month ago
