The second wine of Château Canon. Delicious. A little sweet point and then a dry pure volume, silky and correct. Maturing spicy plummy fruit. Gorgeous supple feel. The changes at Canon beginning to take effect with this vintage and it is a joy. Croix Canon is made from a blend which combines a majority of Merlot with a smaller quantity of Cabernet Franc. The wine is then aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, including a small proportion of new barrels to preserve aromatic balance and freshness of the fruit. This is a complex wine, with fruity and mineral notes, a taut, well-integrated texture and a harmonious aromatic range. Winemaker's notes (Jul 2017)
