2016 Château Canon, 1er Grand Cru Classé St-Emilion

2016 Château Canon, 1er Grand Cru Classé St-Emilion

The 2016 is poised and elegant, after the opulence of the 2015, and is just entering its drinking window. The fruit character is precise and savoury-tinged, with silky tannins and a fresh seam of acidity.

Tasting notes

Lively dark crimson. Very smart and complex on the nose - distinctively different. Really focused and rich but not sweet. Real lift and drive. So complete! Opulent on the nose but nothing remotely simple and sweet. Throbs with excitement.

Jancis Robinson MW, jancisrobinson.com (May 2017)

Very intense aromas already of pure berry, mineral and spice. Full body yet refined and tight with gorgeous linear and refined character. Beautiful and classic beauty.
