    April 27, 2021 - Dark garnet colored, medium full bodied, floral aromas with firm, concentrated sweet red and black raspberry fruits accented with tones of kirsch and tobacco leaf with firm but silky soft tannins on the long smooth lingering finish.

    February 14, 2021 - Drank well right out of the gate, but did improve over 2-3 hours as well. Nice fruit (dark berries), spice, and medium tannins.

    November 2, 2019 - Uncorked and tasted, there was a very welcoming classic Bordeaux nose, dark wood, beef fat, and blueberries. The tannins felt very rounded which was pleasantly surprising given its age of under a decade. This was followed by a blueberry cassis and fruit palate towards the end which lingered for 5+ secs. Overall, a very balanced wine, the nose was outstanding, palate was pleasant, paired well with steak. Definitely worth having in the cellar for now or the near future!

  • M.Y. Chong Likes this wine:

    November 2, 2019 - What a lovely nose. This bottle was from a cold cellar. At first pop it was lightly fragrant and the palate felt thin. With a quick decant and warming of the wine. This bottle blossomed into a fragrant and rich wine. The nose is quintessentially Bordeaux. With deep dark fruits and a haunting floral nose. The palate is pure and the finish is precise and long. The tannins are extremely smooth. A surprise coming from this vintage. This is my first bottle of Chateau Canon and definitely will not be my last one! (Sourced from The Wine Society by Ben Liew)
