Canon 2016

Canon

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 100.0

Named after Jacques Kanon who bought the estate in 1790, Château Canon has been under the control of luxury retailer Chanel since 1996. They have invested heavily in the estate to produce the best wine possible with no expense spared. The results have been remarkable, with the grand vin consistently scoring in the high 90s in recent years and garnering a devoted following from oenophiles. Its 18 hectares are nearly evenly split with c.55% Merlot and c.45% Cabernet Franc placed on limestone-based soils, to create a balanced wine that glides through rich flavours of dark berry, liquorice and spices. With their own dedicated walled Merlot vineyard found at the entrance of Saint-Émilion, this tiny plot still continues to be ploughed by horse. Taking us through centuries of viticultural history, Château Canon have created an opulent wine with a robust, rounded flavour.

Andy Howard MW

Like Rauzan-Segla, Canon is owned by Chanel with 2016 being the second great vintage for winemaker Nicolas Audebert. After the top-scoring 2015, 2016 is a more restrained wine which demonstrates elegance rather than power. Dark berry and cherry fruit dominate the palate, with pronounced, leafy red-fruit/violets and roses on the nose. Fine-grained tannins, some smokiness from 70% new oak, this is another glorious St-Emilion with a long future ahead.

This has all the power that St-Emilion can deliver, but deals it out slowly with precision, gorgeous balance and a clean lift. It has great concentration, purity and depth, without sacrificing the integrity of the juicy blueberry and cassis fruits. It really is a great example of what the limestone plateau can do. The 2015 delivers a slightly more voluptuous edge to the fruits, whereas this vintage emphasises fresh mint leaf, salinity and grip. A wonderful wine, utterly delicious.
