A wine full of finesse and class with fantastic length and polish. Medium to full body with ultra-fine tannins that run endlessly down the length of the wine. Blackberry, graphite, and spice. Agile and weightless. ~96-97 James Suckling
A brilliant wine in the making, the 2021 Canon offers up aromas of cherries, wild berries, licorice, sweet soil tones, raw cocoa, Indian spices, and rose petals. Medium to full-bodied, layered, and multidimensional, it's immensely refined and seamless, with a lively spine of acidity, ripe tannins, and a long, penetrating, intensely saline finish. This beautifully balanced Canon is one of the classiest, most complete wines of the Right Bank in this vintage. Tasted four times. ~94-96 WA
The 2021 Canon was picked from September 16 to October 6 and matured in 50% new oak for a planned 16-18 months. Around 70% of the vineyard produced the normal yield, which underwent a 50% deselection, yet it still yielded 40hL/ha because the vines did not suffer stress. After mildew, any launches that showed damage to the stems were removed. Nicolas Audebert told me that there was no concentration or saignee, just a little chaptalization (around 0.5-1.0%, depending on the tank). This has quite a concentrated bouquet of opulent dark cherries, blueberry, violet, and just a hint of camphor. The palate is medium-bodied and pliant, with a gentle grip. saturated tannins and a judicious touch of spice toward the compact finish. While recent top-flight vintages may well eclipse this Canon, it still stands as a fine addition to the recent roster. ~92-94 Neal Martin, Vinous Media
Dramatic, rich, and imposing, the 2021 Canon is shaping up to be one of the wines of the vintage. Sculpted red purplish fruit, rose petals, lavender, sage, and crushed rocks all race out of the glass. A heady, vertical wine, Canon is endowed with tremendous concentration and class. The aromatics alone are beguiling, but it is the wine's balance that impresses most. Tasted three times. This is such an elegant and regal wine. ~95-97 Antoni Galloni, Vinous Media
