Marks and reviews
Masterfully led by the talented Nicolas Audebert, the wines of the property are now considered some of the greatest of the appellation. They are known for the elegance of their style, their precision and their depth.
A real favourite from this vintage of challenges and contrasts, the Château Canon 2017 rewards the mastery and technicality of the estate teams. In a blend dominated by Merlot (77%), complemented by Cabernet Franc (23%), the Château Canon 2017 shines with an alluring character.
Intense and beautiful, the bouquet opens with pure and crisp fruit notes, evoking blackcurrant, blueberry and cherry. Fresh herbs then appear, among them menthol notes and eucalyptus. On the palate, the wine explodes with flavours and reveals a texture that is silky and mellow, almost sensual as it unfolds with purity and delivers a delicately mineral extension with a saline touch, the fingerprint of the greatest limestone terroirs. A sensual Saint-Émilion that is simply divine.
