Tasting Note:

Canon's terroir on the limestone plateau to the west of St Emilion has never been in doubt. John Kolasa has worked tirelessly to improve the health of the vines and rediscover the Canon's glory days. The 2009 and 2010 hinted at what this estate is capable of. 2015 confirms that this is now one of St Emilions leading wines. The new technical director, Nicolas Audebert, formally of Cheval des Andes has had a dream start to his tenure. The 2015 Canon is such an assured wine, brimming with energetic dark perfumed fruit, hints of graphite, violets and sandalwood. There is wonderful purity to the dark sultry fruits: luminous, polished, sweet, vital; it is utterly engaging. Dark chocolaty mulberry flavours are interspersed with high toned cranberry notes, complemented by the wonderfully sleek, pure cassis coated tannins. A tremendous Canon! Produced from 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc.
