Chateau Canon

18

A distinctive, structured, mineral-infused, medium-bodied effort, the 2001 Canon exhibits notes of damp earth, sweet cherries, and spice, a firm structure, and very good purity. This is clearly an estate on the rebound. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2014. *** A closed, firm, mineral-laden effort, this medium-bodied, concentrated, backward St.-Emilion possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose of black fruits and liquified stone aromas. It has excellent texture and considerable persistence. This may ultimately turn out to be as good as the 2000. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020.
