    2012 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe B

    Chateau Canon 2012 release is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc: creamy and rich. This 2012 Saint-Emilion carries lovely density and concentration despite unusual winter conditions, humid spring, dry summer, and surging temperatures in the fall.

    Pleasantly complex, the 2012 Chateau Canon offers a really fruity bouquet mixing strawberry and raspberry. The structure is smooth, supple yet delicate and feminine.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted from several bottles in recent months, the 2012 Canon is a stupendous wine for the vintage and if anything, it appears to be improving with each encounter. It clearly serves up more than enough volume and fruit intensity on the nose compared to the impressive 2011 Canon: it is very pure with black cherries, wild strawberry, asphalt and blood orange. This is very well defined and beautifully focused. The palate is medium-bodied, silky smooth and with that thrilling sense of frisson. There is so much vivacity wound up inside this Saint Emilion that it would not surprise me if it turns out to be one of the very best in 2012. Tasted January 2017.
