Château Canon 2016

A lively and balanced Saint-Emilion Grand Cru wine

The estate

Nestled at the heights of the limestone plateau of Saint-Émilion, Château Canon enjoys an exceptional location. Located on the right bank of Bordeaux, the superb estate takes its name from the famous sailor and corsair of the King, Jacques Kanon. It was in 1954 that Château Canon became a Premier Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion.

The vineyard

Château Canon is a Saint-Emilion wine that stems from a 20-hectare vineyard whose vines are 30 years old on average and planted on clay-limestone soils.

The blend

Merlot (74%)
Cabernet Franc (26%).

Château Canon 2016: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Nose
The nose reveals fruity (black cherries, ripe fruit), floral (violets) and empyreumatic (chocolate) fragrances as well as beautiful aromas of fresh figs and spices.

Palate
The silky and very fine tannins are creamy and persistent on the palate. The minerality of the Château Canon 2016 terroir reveals an utterly sophisticated, lively and well-blanced expression.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc and aged for 18 months in 70% new French barriques, the 2016 Canon is medium to deep garnet-purple in color, and--WOW--it opens with the most stunning perfume of violets, red roses and kirsch, giving way to a core of black cherry preserves, chocolate box, licorice, warm plums and Chinese five spice plus an earthy waft of underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely filled with expressive, perfumed black berry layers accented by lively red fruits and exotic spices, supported by impressively fine-grained tannins and fantastic tension, finishing very long with jaw-dropping energy. Tasted three times, I had one opportunity to taste the 2015 and 2016 Canon side by side. While I love the bold, rich, seductive nature of the 2015, this 2016 kicks it up a notch in terms of polish, precision, depth and persistence. Most notably, the superbly ripe, exquisitely fine-grained tannins on this 2016 bring to the table a whole other level of sophistication. Bravo!
