2012 Château Canon

St-Emilion, 1er grand cru classé (B)

$95.00 per Bottle


18 Bottles




"Tasted from several bottles in recent months, the 2012 Canon is a stupendous wine for the vintage and if anything, it appears to be improving with each encounter. It clearly serves up more than enough volume and fruit intensity on the nose compared to the impressive 2011 Canon: it is very pure with black cherries, wild strawberry, asphalt and blood orange. This is very well defined and beautifully focused. The palate is medium-bodied, silky smooth and with that thrilling sense of frisson. There is so much vivacity wound up inside this Saint Emilion that it would not surprise me if it turns out to be one of the very best in 2012. Tasted January 2017." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"A red with blueberry, blackberry and walnut character. Chocolate too. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. This is tight and dense. Extremely polished tannins and a long finish. Another 2001. Better in 2018." JamesSuckling.com

"Racy meat-extract nose. Good energy and vitality without too much exaggeration. Just a hint of cocoa powder. Very polished." JancisRobinson.com
