"...off-the-charts richness and intensity in all of its dimensions. In the glass, the 2017 is sumptuous and layered, with superb detail and tons of sheer pedigree...a ravishing, exquisite wine..." (97 points) Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, March 2020

"Extremely perfumed with blackcurrants, flowers, gunmetal, gunpowder and blackberries. Full-bodied, tight and reserved. The tannins are so tightly knit and just run through the center. Needs at least three or four years to open. A blend of 77% merlot and 23% cabernet franc. Better after 2023." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2017 Canon was bottled on 15 May, 2019. This needs time to settle in the glass, the oak rather vocal at this early stage and overshadowing the blackberry and briary aromas. It only takes a couple of minutes for this Saint-Émilion to settle and reveal more limestone-infused fruit that really shows its terroir. The palate is very well defined with crunchy black fruit. I appreciate the chalky texture and freshness of this Canon, almost brittle, with blackberry and brine-like notes on the finish. Whilst not up there with the superlative 2016, the follow-up is still very fine. Note that over multiple tasting this Canon improved between September and December." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Deep cherry red. Beautifully scented in a dark-fruited and subtly leafy way. Lots of Cabernet Franc character – cedar and cassis leaf – adding freshness too. Subtle and supple. Long, finely dry persistence. I am not sure if I would have put this in St-Émilion if I had tasted it blind – delicate and long and elegant. I think you could broach this in relative youth. The alcohol is completely hidden." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
