2005 Saint-Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classe B, Bordeaux.

The Château Canon vineyard is situated on a complex terroir and stretches over 32 hectares; it 30 years old on average. This excellent 2005 Saint-Emilion is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. 

The wine displays a beautiful deep red colour. The 2005 Chateau Canon reveals a good persistence, followed by a lovely nervousness. This wine develops a certain richness characterised by complex aromas and a good ripeness. On the palate, this vintage is nervous with a lovely acidity, making this wine quite incredible. The aromatic evolution offers spicy, liquorice, gingerbread, violet, chocolate notes but also floral and slightly menthol aromas.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A strong effort from Château Canon, the 2005 offers a saturated ruby/purple color followed by beautiful floral notes intermixed with black raspberry, black cherry, and some crushed rock. Medium to full-bodied, with extraordinary elegance and precision, this stunner is showing better now than it was early in its life. This wine is set for another three decades of longevity.
