The Croix Canon has a lovely balance between primary red and blackberry fruit with more maturing light leathery notes and touch of fresh soil. It is silky, soft, with seamless tannins off-set by a bountiful freshness. There is excellent clarity of blackberry and black plum on the palate, pristine in character and of impressive purity. This is a really juicy, medium-bodied, elegant-styled Saint-Emilion, very in keeping with the Ch. Canon style. There is additional fresh liquorice and sweeter blackberry pastille notes on the finish, nicely contrasted with the overriding freshness. This is very enjoyable now, with a nice energy to the palate, warming, whilst remaining elegant.
