Chateau Canon 2016: A lively and well-balanced Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Chateau Canon 2016 is a Classified First Growth in the Saint-Emilion appellation. This red wine is produced on a 20 hectare vineyard. The vines are, on average 30 years old, and planted on a clay-limestone plateau. Chateau Canon 2016 is a blend of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc. The wine is aged in barrels for 18 months, 65% of the barrels are new.

Chateau Canon 2016 has a rich aromatic palate. Aromas of black fruits (black cherries), ripe fruits, floral (violets), empyreumatic (chocolate notes) as well as fresh figs and spices. Silky and delicate, the tannins offer a creamy and persistent texture. Chateau Canon 2016 is an elegant wine, both lively and well-balanced.

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!
