flagBordeaux / France

Tasted a the Chateau Canon vertical, the 1982 Canon is clearly fully mature on the nose, so much so that I have a sneaking suspicion that it may have passed its peak. But there is still plenty to savor here with leather, fresh prune and game, perhaps just a little volatility but not too much. The palate is medium-bodied, fleshy on the entry with good acidity, sweeter and more candied than the 1989 Canon. It offers black cherries, raspberry coulis, leather, sage and tobacco, coalescing nicely towards the finish that lingers. There is a game-like and feral aspect to this 1982 these days, though it will continue to give pleasure over the next decade. Tasted October 2015. Mar 2017, www.robertparker.com
