Château Canon 2015

SKU :1114/15

Château Canon 2015 est un 1er cru classé de Saint-Emilion qui arbore une couleur rouge carmin intense. Le nez est frais et élégant orchestrant des arômes de groseille et de framboise, lesquels évoluent vers des notes épicées. En bouche, le vin parle du terroir. Il est précis, vibrant, aérien. Les tanins sont raffinés et soyeux. Ils dévoilent une fabuleuse onctuosité, une texture suave et caressante, révélatrices de la maturité du millésime. En final, une très belle longueur révèle le côté racé de ce vin.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Canon is going to be a benchmark for this historic estate. A blend of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, it was cropped at 42 hl/ha between 14-25 September and 30 September until 2 October respectively. The alcohol level is an average 14.5% with a pH 3.78, matured for 18 months in 70% new barrels (except for one barrel of Cabernet Franc that they will bottle separately - just to see). Lucid in color, it has an intense bouquet that exudes extraordinary purity with scents of raspberry, wild strawberry, limestone and violets. It makes a huge impression. The palate is medium-bodied and multilayered with vivacious red and black fruit infused with minerals. The acidity lends the tension here from start to finish, but what this Canon possesses unlike the dozens of other vintages that I have tasted, is an overarching structure that will see it age in similar fashion to past classics such as the 1929, 1947 and 1964. It lingers very long in the mouth, the oak just surfacing a little on the aftertaste, although that will be subsumed with time. This estate has been in the ascendant in recent vintages under winemaker John Kolasa and now Nicolas Audebert, together with a benevolent growing season, has elevated Canon to a level that few could have predicted.
