Critic Notes

I loved the '09 and this is as good if not better. Poised and elegant with great purity of fruit. Dense but long and linear. Beautiful texture and tannins. <b>James Lawther, decanter.com</b>

Score: 18.5-/20Decanter

Blackberries and hints of spices and fresh herbs. This is so tasty. It has wonderful round and juicy tannins, with lots of fruit yet subtle and spicy, with chocolate and light coffee. So yummy. Hard not to drink it. This is a classic style of Canon, such as 1955 or 1959. Better than 2009. <b> jamessuckling.com</b>

Score: 95-96/100James Suckling

Canon - From 75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, (which is the same mix as found in the vineyards,) the wine is deep ruby in color and reached 14.8% alcohol. Yet, there is no sensation of heat. People who prefer tasting by the numbers could have problems with this wine, but I loved it! An intoxicating perfume filled with minerality, licorice, black raspberry jam, hints of oak and chocolate, this is the richest, most concentrated wine produced by the Kolasa team yet. Thick, intense and filled with fresh, perfectly ripe plums, blackberries and licorice, the wine feels great as it falls over your palate and coats your mouth. <b>winecellarinsider.com</b>

Tasted at the Chateau Canon vertical, the 2010 Canon has developed a certain opulence in the nose since I last tasted it. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, there is a surfeit of blackberry and blueberry fruit, a background scents of warm gravel and pressed flowers that emerge with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a succulent core of sweet mulberry and dark plum fruit, surprisingly saline in the mouth, very well balanced with the Cabernet Franc stealing the steering wheel from the Merlot on the finish that fans out beautifully. As I mentioned in my previous note, I feel that this will shut down for several years, but it will ultimately deliver an impressive Chateau Canon, albeit one with a rockin' 15% alcohol.

Score: 93-/100Neal Martin

Ripe, with dark blackberry and linzer torte fruit laced nicely with the racy, mouthwatering acidity and strong graphite spine of the vintage. Long, driven and very solid, with serious, charcoal-tinged grip.<b> James Molseworth, winespectator.com</b>

Score: 91-94/100Wine Spectator

An elegant, attractive blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc cropped at 35 hectoliters per hectare, this wine tips the scales at 15% natural alcohol which, given the more elegant style sought at Canon, tells readers a lot about how powerful the 2010 vintage was across all the appellations of Bordeaux. Exhibiting plenty of raspberry, blueberry and black cherry fruit as well as some crushed rock/chalky minerality and a floral note, this very impressive Canon is backward, structured and precise. Give it 7-8 years of bottle age and drink it over the following three decades.||Canon’s vineyard measures 50+ acres, and the wine is looked after by well-known consultant Gilles Pauquet.

Score: 91-/100Robert Parker

Slightly smudgy on the nose. Thick and sweet and angular on the palate. Job done, but without enormous grace, and surely with quite a bit of oak? <b>jancisrobinson.com</b>

Score: 16-/20Jancis Robinson

This is a thick wine that lacks definition of fruit on the palate. The extraction on this wine was too excessive resulting in a wine that is finishes bitter and dry. <b> asianpalate.com</b>

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 ...

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 ...
