Jeb Dunnuck Tasting Notes: 97/100 Located within the Saint-Emilion appellation, Château Canon is characterized by the velvety and silky style of its wines. Renowned for their finesse and elegance, this cru benefits from an exceptional aptitude for aging which brings the reputation of its wines to the highest level. This 2017 opens with the most astonishing scent of violet, red rose and kirsch, giving way to aromas of black cherries, boxes of chocolate, liquorice, candied plums and spices. On the palate, the superbly ripe and extremely fine tannins of this 2017 bring a whole new level of sophistication. Well done!
