The elegance and power of a Premier Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Emilion
After a rainy winter and spring, a beautiful summer followed, extending well into dry and sunny autumn, which produced a miracle. At Chateau Canon, the harvest began on September 7th with Merlot and ended on October 5th with Cabernet Franc.
At the tasting, the Chateau Canon 2018 presents bright fruit aromas that spring from the glass. The aromatic bouquet is quite generous, with notes of black fruit, cherry and marzipan, followed by fresh minty notes and delicate floral notes, evoking rose. It is on the palate, however, that the wine expresses itself fully, with magnificent density, and structured tannins with a silky touch. The palate is powerful, evolves a biting acidity and maintaining deliciously mellow and tasty fruit. A magnificent vintage, marked by the grace and refinement of Chateau Canon.
