CHATEAU CANON 2016

CHATEAU CANON 2016
Tasting Note :
Composed of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc and aged for 18 months in 70% new French barrels, the 2016 Canon is medium to deep garnet-purple in color, and - WOW - it opens with the most stunning perfume of violets cherry preserves, chocolate box, licorice, warm plums and Chinese five spice plus an earthy waft of underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely filled with expressive, perfumed black berry layers accented by lively red fruits and exotic spices, supported by impressively fine-grained tannins and fantastic tension, finishing very long with jaw-dropping energy. Tasted three times, I had one chance to taste the 2015 and 2016 Canon side by side. While I love the bold, rich, seductive nature of the 2015, this 2016 kicks it up in polish, precision, depth and persistence. Most notably, the superbly ripe, exquisitely fine-grained tannins on this 2016 bring to the table of sophistication.  RP98
