Chateau Canon

29

An underachiever for the vintage, the fully mature 1990 Canon reveals a strong earthy, spicy, cedary, herbaceous character accompanied by sweet currants, plums, and hints of dark cherries and cola. It is more superficial than it should be given the greatness of the vineyard, but the tannins have mellowed, and the wine exhibits an attractive expansiveness. The finish is much too brief for a Premier Grand Cru Classe from St.-Emilion. Nevertheless, it will offer enjoyable drinking over the next 5-6 years. Release price: ($600.00/case)
