2014 Canon 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 94 points
Drink by: 2020 - 2050
The 2014 Canon has a very well-defined, precise bouquet with ebullient raspberry and wild strawberry scents infused with minerals. The aromatics here are utterly captivating.
The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and very well-judged acidity. There is tension and poise to this Saint-Emilion, gently fanning out with a delicate spicy finish that lingers long in the mouth. Though surely destined to be over-shadowed by the extraordinary 2015, this Canon deserves a berth in your cellar.
"The Château seems eternal, giving the impression of being frozen in time. Located close to the village, its drawing room and courtyard offer views over the ramparts. When privateer Jacques Kanon bought the vineyard in 1760, he could hardly have imagined that 250 years later the estate would be globally recognised for its wine, which is ranked amongst the very finest Premiers Crus. He left it his name, which has now gone down in history.
When CHANEL acquired the estate in 1996 they decided to invest in restoring the full potential of Château Canon for crafting Premier Grand Cru Classe wines. The vineyard, the cellars and all the buildings were given their current appearance. The latest to date is the 18th century residence, entirely restored to the highest standards by architect Peter Marino. This is no ordinary Château. It is a home, a family-owned Château passed down through the generations."
