2018 is another outstanding vintage from Ch. Canon, and one of the most beautiful wines of the Right Bank this year. 65% Merlot with 35% Cabernet Franc make up the blend, ageing for 18 months in small new barrels, of which 52% are new. Colour is bright purple-garnet of medium depth, aromas being ripe, fresh and intricate, melding red fruits with spiciness. Palate is captivating, with many-layered flavours elegantly combining with rich body, tangy freshness and powerful, gentle, long aftertaste (for drinking 2023-2038+).
