2012 Canon

Average critic rating : 92.25 points



The 2012 is the first truly profound Canon under the administration of the Wertheimers, the family that owns the famous haute couture house of Chanel. Improvement has been noticeable for a number of years, but this wine is remarkable, particularly in view of a more challenging vintage. The color is a healthy dark ruby/purple, and the wine offers up great minerality along with floral, black-fruited characteristics. What’s not a surprise are the nobility, elegance and finesse of this wine (70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc) married with serious richness and intensity. Give it another 5-6 years and drink it over the following 20-25 years.| eRobertParker.com.April, 2015



A very silky and elegant wine that finishes beautifully. Full-to-medium body, with well integrated tannins and a refined and pretty finish. It goes on nicely with chocolate, walnuts, hazelnuts, and delicate fruit. Very savory. Lovely texture. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc. 80% new oak. 14% abv. Canon always stands out amongst the St Emilions for its restraint and this has typical purity on the nose with very clear dark plum fruit. Delicately creamy on the palate with rounded tannins. Fresh and natural. FINE+RARE
