The 2018 Chateau Canon wine has a deep purple-black in color. This Chateau Canon wine comes sashaying out of the glass with glamorous notes of cinnamon stick, baked blackberries, black cherry compote and licorice. This St-Émilion wine is medium to full-bodied, the palate is wonderfully soft-spoken, whispering of fragrant floral and earthy scents beneath a core of profound, mouth-coating black and blue fruits, draped in a high level of super ripe, plush tannins. This Canon wine finishes with amazing freshness and perfume with loads of mineral sparks emerging.
A beautiful 2018 Chateau Canon wine that performs the 360-degree trick in your mouth of expanding up, down and out. Of course a little austere right now at this young age, but already walking the tightrope towards richness; the creaminess in the texture becomes clear after 20 minutes in the glass. This has salinity, purity, precision and grip, showing its distinct personality and its ability to draw juice and mouthwatering expression from the fruits.
The 2018 Chateau Canon wine is blended of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, with a pH of 3.69 and 14% alcohol.
