Chateau La Croix Canon, Fronsac 2016

Croix Canon

Case Format: 6x75cl

The property has belonged to the DORNEAU family for several generations, going back to 1870. At the beginning, Madame Viaud, who believed in the development of the Fronsac Appellation, bought several small parcels to form the first of properties, the Château LA CROIX. In 1949, her niece, Jeanne, inherited the property and bought with her husband a second one, the Château ROULLET, classified in Canon Fronsac. In 1960, their son, Michel, bought the vineyards of Château PONTUS. Today, Patrick, the son of Michel, manages all the vineyards and participates in the collective management of the Fronsac and Canon Fronsac wine appellations and in the collective management of the truffle production from “gironde”.

One of my (relative) value buys of the year on this showing. Bright, vivacious, creamy fruits that expand through the mid palate, great freshness and acidity that speak of the location just on the edge of the limestone plateau. A brilliant 2nd wine. 25% new oak.

Neal Martin

The 2016 Croix Canon is a blend of 76% Merlot and 24% Cabernet Franc this year and matured in 25% new oak. It has a very precise bouquet with blackcurrant, touches of blueberry and subtle mineral aromas, gaining intensity as it opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, very tensile in the mouth with touches of graphite and tobacco, seguing into a supple and refined finish. It seems very approachable at this stage, but even as a Deuxième Vin, I can see this aging nicely over a decade, possibly more.
