2014 Croix Canon, St Emilion
The captivating Chateau Canon 2014 was one of the wines of the vintage and this vibrant deuxième vin from younger vines also impresses. Medium bodied with dark raspberry and blackberry fruit, liquorice, fine grain tannins and a slight smokiness on the long finish.
"The 2014 Croix Canon, the estate's second wine, emerges from a parcel nestled between Berliquet, Vieux Château Mazerat and Angélus. A blast of dark red stone fruit, smoke, tar, licorice and earthiness hits the palate in a wine that is dense and powerful, yet also weightless and quite classic in conception. It is precisely those contrasts that make the Croix Canon so compelling. The Croix Canon is not sold en primeur, but when it is eventually released, it will be a must-buy." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
