2008 Saint-Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classe B, Bordeaux.

The Château Canon was established on a vineyard of 31.80 hectares, among which 19.8 hectares are dedicated to the production of great wine. This 2008 is a blend of 75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc. 
The purple-tinted garnet wine is supple and charming. This 2008 Saint-Emilion offers red and black berries, spices notes enhanced by chocolate aromas. The silky and melted tannins offer a good length on the palate. The intense and smooth 2008 Chateau Canon develops a good finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Although reserved and shut down following bottling, the 2008 exhibits a dense plum/ruby/purple color, abundant tannin, an unmistakable minerality and a long finish despite its structured, backward, medium-bodied mouthfeel. Sweet blue and black fruits have to be coaxed from the glass. Cellar it for 5-7 years and enjoy it over the following 20-25.
