Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, March 2020

    Ch Canon’s second wine hails from an enviably positioned parcel between Berliquet, Vieux Château Mazerat and Angélus, offering the intensity and finesse of St Emilion at a reasonable price tag. Produced in the Château’s 12th century chapel, the 2014 Croix Canon displays gorgeous, ripe dark fruits and bramble leaf. Well integrated oak (30% new) gives a pleasing density on the palate and contributes warm spiced notes that flow through onto the finish.

    Score: 89-92

    The 2014 Croix Canon, the estate's second wine, emerges from a parcel nestled between Berliquet, Vieux Château Mazerat and Angélus. A blast of dark red stone fruit, smoke, tar, licorice and earthiness hits the palate in a wine that is dense and powerful, yet also weightless and quite classic in conception. It is precisely those contrasts that make the Croix Canon so compelling. The Croix Canon is not sold en primeur, but when it is eventually released, it will be a must-buy.

Producer

Château Canon

Château Canon is located on rich limestone soil slopes southwest of the town of St Emilion. It is known for its muscular style which when young can be quite backward and tight but with age can evolve beautifully. Now owned by Chanel, who have invested heavily, Canon is going from strength to strength.

Region

St Emilion

South of Pomerol lies the medieval, perched village of St Emilion. Surrounding St Emilion are vines that produce round, rich and often hedonistic wines. Despite a myriad of soil types, two main ones dominate - the gravelly, limestone slopes that delve down to the valley from the plateau and the valley itself which is comprised of limestone, gravel, clay and sand. Despite St Emilion's popularity today, it was not until the 1980s to early 1990s that attention was brought to this region. Robert Parker, the famous wine critic, began reviewing their Merlot-dominated wines and giving them hefty scores. The rest is history as they say. Similar to the Médoc, there is a classification system in place which dates from 1955 and outlines several levels of quality. These include its regional appellation of St Emilion, St Emilion Grand Cru, St Emilion Grand Cru Classé and St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, which is further divided into "A" (Ausone and Cheval Blanc) and "B" (including Angélus, Canon, Figeac and a handful of others). To ensure better accuracy, the classification is redone every 10 years enabling certain châteaux to be upgraded or downgraded depending on on the quality of their more recent vintages.
