Critic Notes

The strongest effort from Canon since 1982 and before 2009, the 2007 (75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc) exhibits a dark ruby/purple color along with a beautiful bouquet of crushed rocks, boysenberries, blueberries, black raspberries, and licorice. The soft tannins, classic feel and texture, and medium to full-bodied, lengthy finish with no hard edges make for an enjoyable, potentially complex wine to drink over the next 15 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2010

Score: 90-/100Robert Parker

Dark, spicy and a little savoury but rather light on the palate. Still finishes fresh enough.Julia Harding, www.jancisrobinson.com, 20 Oct 2009

Score: 16-/20Jancis Robinson

This exhibits sliced plum, chocolate and toffee notes. Medium-bodied, with a light plum fruit character and a medium, silky finish. Slightly one-dimensional at this stage, but harmonious. Best after 2012. – James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2010

Score: 88-/100Wine Spectator

Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Canon has a light and pleasant but, I have to say, slightly weedy bouquet that is simply missing the intensity of either Troplong-Mondot or Canon-la-Gaffeliere. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannin on the entry, game and leather infusing the dark berry fruit with a healthy pinch of white pepper on the finish. It's actually one of the better bottles that I have tasted, although Nicolas Audebert is producing far superior wines nowadays. Tasted February 2017. Jun 2017, www.robertparker.com

2014: THE F+R PICKS. CANON AND RAUZAN-SEGLA
Rauzan-Ségla There are 43 kilometres between Chx Canon and Rauzan-Ségla along with both the Garonne and the Dordogne rivers.  It may seem a little odd to mention the two together though they are two brothers from different mothers, and both are at the top.  They share ownership in the Chanel Group and, until later this year, they share the direction ...

Interview with Nicolas Audebert – Chief Winemaker at Chateau Rauzan Segla, Chateau Canon and Chateau Berliquet
The Rauzan Segla 2018 has been met with rave reviews. At what point did you feel you had made a special wine? It is a long process in a technician's mind as the picture of the vintage is getting clearer and clearer from the picking to the “dégustations d’assemblage” (blending tastings).  Each vintage gives me a particular emotion, the ...

Chateau Ausone has, without question, been producing some of the finest wines in the world for many decades, but ...

Isabel Ferrando on finding the 'Saint Prefert identity'
"Proprietress Isabel Ferrando has taken her Saint Prefert estate to France’s highest level, and she’s unquestionably making some of the most profound wines on earth today, including both reds and whites." So said Rhone expert Jeb Dunnuck on release of the 2016 vintage. The names Isabel Ferrando and Saint Prefert have indeed become synonymous with Southern Rhone of the highest ...
