Château Canon 2006 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, 1er Grand Cru Classé B

The nose is fruity, fresh, gourmand and offers a beautiful finesse and freshness. It reveals notes of fresh cassis, red fruit and fine notes of mocha associated with touches of cornflower, juicy blueberry, fine touches of undergrowth, a few discreet oaky notes as well as a discreet note of zan. The palate is fruity, gourmand, beautifully elegant, fat, suave, harmonious, a beautiful finesse, tight and offers a beautiful freshness, a good density, a beautiful finesse of the grain and a beautiful frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis and strawberry associated with fine touches of Garriguette strawberry, very slight notes of mocha, oak, hints of dried red fruits as well as a discreet hint of dried rose and licorice. Tannins are fine and well built. Good length and persistence with touches of cocoa and grilled oak. Beautiful harmony! The wine must be decanted before tasting.
