    A beautiful example of St Emilion from this hillside plot adjoining Ch Canon and Ch Berliquet and neighbouring Ch L’Angelus. The combination of 70% merlot and 30% cabernet franc is perfectly expressed in this 2019 wine. The sensations of mocha and wild bramble fruits are kept perfectly in check by the pure racy freshness that the cabernet franc provides giving lift and dynamism to this classy wine. Finely poised with a delicate persistent finish. Lovely. Drink 2024 – 2032

  • Neal Martin, February 2022, Score: 91

    The 2019 Croix Canon has a finely delineated, floral bouquet, wilted iris petal and violet scents permeating the mixture of black and blue fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with silky-smooth tannins, cohesive and poised, with a touch of white pepper on the finish. This is very impressive, and the best Croix Canon that I have tasted.

  • Antonio Galloni, February 2022, Score: 92

    The 2019 Croix Canon is a fabulous second wine. Pliant and supple, the 2019 possesses terrific depth and resonance. Ripe dark cherry/plum, spice, lavender and rose petal are front and center. Readers will find a gorgeous Saint-Émilion that balances opulence and freshness, a pretty winning combination in my book.

  • WK, April 2022, Score: 91

    From sandy soils on the plain, below Berliquet and next to Jonathan Maltus' new winery, the 2019 Croix Canon offers up aromas of raspberries, plums, loamy soil and raw cocoa. Medium to full-bodied, ample and charming, with melting tannins and succulent acids, it's already drinking well.

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.
