The Intense Expression of a Charming Saint-Emilion
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 favorite from this vintage of challenges and contrasts, the Chateau Canon 2017 rewards the mastery and technicality of the estate teams. In a blend dominated by Merlot (77%), complemented by Cabernet Franc (23%), the Chateau 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 flavors 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-Emilion that is simply divine.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The deep purple-black colored 2017 Canon offers-up intense notes of crushed blackberries, black cherries and warm cassis with touches of fertile loam, yeast extract, beef drippings and iron ore plus a waft of garrigue. Medium to full-bodied with great freshness and firm, rounded tannins, it's very earthy in the mouth, finishing long and mineral-laced. A very serious wine, it is also fun, bright and vivacious and should age impressively.
