Château Canon 2022

Saint-Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classé AOC

Awarding Château Canon 2022 99-100 points, Wine Advocate declared that the estate "is delivering its greatest run of vintages since the superb Post War series" and called the 2022 "ineffably complete". Suckling was almost equally effusive. This 1er Grand Cru Classé estate lies surrounded by some of Saint-Émilion’s top names, including Bel Air, Clos Fourtet and Beauséjour. It has enjoyed huge investment recently, yet prices have not risen to match, making Château Canon a very smart buy. The 2022 is obviously one of its very best, "a magical wine that will be worth every effort to track down" (WA). Cassis, plum and spice aromas, leading to dark berries, cherries, bay leaf and spice, wrapped in plush tannins with a sleek texture. Exceptional.
