"Loads of toasted oak on this one, with very ripe fruit character. Full-bodied, and very concentrated, yet the tannins are round and creamy. Smoky finish. Exciting stuff here. Best Canon in a long, long time." Wine Spectator

2000 VINTAGE

93 Loads of toasted oak on this one, with very ripe fruit character. Full-bodied, and very concentrated, yet the tannins are round and creamy. Smoky finish. Exciting stuff here. Best Canon in a long, long time. Best after 2010. –JS
96 This wine is superb. With its power and structure it will age over 20 years or more. Backed by blackcurrant and jelly flavors, it shows great fruity attractiveness even at this early stage in its development. It will develop slowly and evenly to become a reference point for the vintage. — R.V. (6/1/2003) Wine Enthusiast
Very attractive nose of summer pudding and cream. The essence of Saint-Emilion. Gorgeous, with a wonderful creamy texture. Succulent yet subtle. Drink 2007-20
90 This elegant St.-Emilion has filled out nicely over the last decade. From barrel and post-bottling, I thought it might turn out austere, but that does not appear to be the case. It offers a deep ruby/purple color as well as copious aromas of black cherries, crushed rocks, and earthy undertones. While not a blockbuster, it is beautifully balanced and pure, revealing slightly more depth and richness than I expected. Drink it now and over the next 10-15 years.

Occassions  

‘Chateau Canon produces one of the very best wines of the right bank of Bordeaux. The vineyard occupies most of the plateau west of St Emilion. It is possible that this is the oldest monocultural property in the area.’ - Clive Coates, Master of Wine

‘At its best Canon is a splendidly rich, deep, and concentrated wine, muscular and full-bodied and when mature, richly fruity, cedary, and often magnificent.’ - Robert Parker
