St Emilion Grand Cru 17
For the past three vintages Canon has been been one of the most highly sought after wines. The huge investment cosmetics giant Chanel has made is certainly paying dividends.
"The deep purple-black colored 2017 Canon offers-up intense notes of crushed blackberries, black cherries and warm cassis with touches of fertile loam, yeast extract, beef drippings and iron ore plus a waft of garrigue. Medium to full-bodied with great freshness and firm, rounded tannins, it's very earthy in the mouth, finishing long and mineral-laced. A very serious wine, it is also fun, bright and vivacious and should age impressively." 94-96/100 Parker 92-94/100 Neal Martin 93-96/100 Vinous
