Canon is consistently one of the most beautiful wines of the Right Bank. We were unable to taste this 2019 before release, but have every confidence in this wine being a great buy this year, at a price that is approximately 15% less than the 2018. The following tasting details have been supplied by the Château:
” Ripe and expressive, bursting with life, bright notes of lush strawberries, raspberries and morello cherry burst forth from the glass. There is this constant sensation of sapidity, so smooth and tasty. The wine palpitates. Intense and sappy, throughout the tasting it preserves this juicy character which is characteristic of the vintage. It speaks to us of the mastery achieved in a year that was nevertheless hot and dry. It brings movement over the palate and invigorates the body. This is a generous yet precise Canon, which combines consistency with fluidity.”
The 2019 is a blend of 74% Merlot with 26% Cabernet Franc, currently ageing in 50% new French oak (for drinking 2024-2040+).
