The 2015 Croix Canon is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It has an intense bouquet for a deuxième vin: kirsch, a touch of cassis and iodine that soar from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with quite powerful dark berry fruit mixed with spice and clove. It gently grips the mouth, good backbone here, perhaps a Croix Canon that will actually benefit from 3-4 years in bottle to allow those tannins to mellow a little. In a word: serious. Seriously good.

A very silky and refined red with salt, mineral, chalk and blackberry aromas and flavors. Full body, defined and precise. Pretty length. Second wine of Canon. Apr 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

One third of the crop went into this. 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc. From a specific property near Angélus that they bought in 2011. Stéphane Bonnasse is maître de chai. Dark crimson. Very rch and sweet and flattering on the nose. Round, not that conceetrated but a real charmer. So supple. Long and sweet but without massive structure.
