Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B 2015


Lobenberg: Eine ultra feine Nase, schwarze und rote Kirsche, dunkel, fein, geschliffen, schwebend. Ein enorm charmanter Mundeintritt, kühl, fein, köstlich. Ein extrem schicker Wein mit superfeinem Tannin, das zwar im Hintergrund spürbar ist, aber so tänzelnd fein dabei. Das Ganze schwebt sich durch den Mund in großer Köstlichkeit und Feinheit, er macht viel Freude. Ein sehr schicker, edler und super feiner St Emilion. Ziemliche Perfektion in einem großen St Emilion Jahr. 100/100


Suckling über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Suckling: This is the greatest red ever produced here, even better than the great wines of the 1950s and 1960s. Full body yet tight and reserved. Superbly refined tannins. Yet rich and flamboyant. Fruity yet salty and minerally. Electric finish. Stone and chalk undertones. A wonder of a young wine. 100/100


Galloni über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Galloni: From the very beginning, the 2015 Canon has made an eloquent case for itself as one of the wines of the vintage. Multiple tastings from bottle only confirm what several early tastings hinted at: the 2015 Canon is simply extraordinary in every way. Sumptuous and exotic, with no hard edges and exceptional balance, the 2015 grabs hold of all the senses and never lets up. A rush of red fruit intermingled with floral notes, spice and smoke notes effortlessly runs up the wine's vertical structure as the 2015 thrills with every twist and turn. The 2015 Canon is a rare wine that is both hedonistic and intellectual - well, maybe it is a bit more hedonistic-leaning. It doesn't matter. Don't miss it. This 2015 is masterpiece from General Manager Nicolas Auderbert and his team at Canon. 100/100


Wine Cellar Insider über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Wine Cellar Insider: Mark my words, this is a future legendary vintage for Canon! It gets everything right from the moment the wine hits the glass. Aromatically, the wine offers flowers, crushed rock, black and red fruits, spearmint, licorice, and hints of tobacco. On the palate, it is even better with its multiple layers of silk-drenched fruits, cashmere tannins, and seamless, over 60-second finish. This is so good now, and it has only started on its journey. Drink from 2022-2060. 100/100


Neal Martin über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Neal Martin: The 2015 Canon was a benchmark wine that seemed to revitalize this historic estate. I was crossing my fingers that it would not disappoint in bottle and I am glad to say that it delivers the goods. It has a very intense bouquet (just as it showed out of barrel) with laser-like precision offering wild strawberry, raspberry preserve, wet limestone and hints of truffle. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, clean and fresh with pure black and red fruit whose every atom appears infused with minerals. The mouth is tingling long after the wine has exited and your brain is thinking...when is the next sip coming? It is frankly heads and shoulders above almost every Saint Émilion this vintage, to reaffirm, a benchmark for this historic estate that will give pleasure to many over the coming years. Astonishing. 100/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Jeb Dunnuck: One of the wines of the vintage is the 2015 Château Canon which is 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc that spent 18 months in 70% new French oak. It offers a perfect example of the old saying “iron fist in a velvet glove” and boasts gorgeous notes of black cherries, framboise, spring flowers and exotic spices. All these lead to a full-bodied, ultra-pure, seamless 2015 that marries incredible richness and depth with a sense of purity, elegance, and weightlessness that needs to be tasted to believed. This multi-dimensional, seamless 2015 needs forgotten for 4-5 years and will keep for three decades or more. Bravo! 98+/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Wine Enthusiast: This estate, now performing on top form, has produced a rich, dense wine. Swathes of black fruits underline the generous structure and intensity. At first taste, the tannins are soft but that turns out to be an illusion. The tannins are just richly cushioned within the beautiful fruit. Drink from 2024. 97/100


Jane Anson über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Jane Anson: This is an opulent, powerful vintage with all the fruit flavours that go with it - ripe plum, damson, black cherry and raspberry, generously textured. Just a gorgeous wine that is starting to show more subtle violet, peony, sate and campfire smoke notes but they need to be coaxed out of the glass right now. A ton of future ahead, there is no question as to quality but it has really closed down, so I would strongly suggest waiting for another 5 years, or carafe for 5 hours. Here the alcohols are higher than in the other vintages of the lineup but there is no sense of heat on the close of play. Nicolas Audebert's first full vintage. 42hl/hyield, 70% new oak, 3.78ph, a long relaxed harvest from September 14 to October 4. 97/100


Gabriel über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Gabriel: Tiefes Purpur, satt in der Mitte.Vielschichtiges Bouquet, zeigt viel schwarzbeerige Frucht und ist mit ganz feinen Kräuternoten durchsetzt. Im Gaumen dicht, feinfleischige Textur, liefert eine fordernde Adstringenz welche aber mit reifen Tanninen bestückt ist, im Finale Cassis, Lakritze und Tabakspuren, sehr nachhaltiges Finale. Ein grosser Canon, so gross wie sein eigener 2009er, aber dann doch viel klassischer. Sehr langes Leben. 19/20


Gerstl über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Gerstl: Schwarzbeerig mit einem Hauch roten beeren und raffinierter Minze, strahlt wunderbar frisch und elegant. Das ist eine absolut geniale Delikatesse, ohne Zweifel der beste Canon der letzten Jahre, ich flippe aus, das ist absolut himmlisch. Ich probiere ihn erneut bei Dourthe: Schon im Duft bestätigt er seine Noblesse, seinen Charme, was für eine sinnliche Duftwolke. Das wird mit Sicherheit wieder einmal ein Canon wie beispielsweise der 64er, eine sagenhafte Delikatesse, mit himmlischen Aromen gesegnet, nobel und mit Charme ohne Ende und mit einem Nachhall der an Komplexität nicht zu übetrbieten ist. 19+/20

Winespectator über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Winespectator: A plush, inviting style, with warmed fig and plum sauce notes taking the lead, picking up swaths of cocoa, tobacco and roasted alder along the way. Features plenty of pumping bass, but if you pay attention, there’s a laser of chalky minerality driving the finish. When the baby flesh drops away, this will sail in the cellar for some time. Best from 2022 through 2045. 7,500 cases made. 97/100

Mein Winzer

Chateau Canon

Die Weinberge von Chateau Canon liegen auf dem Plateau von Saint Emilion mit Ton und tiefem Kalkstein. Die exponierte Süd-/Südwestlage beschert den Trauben eine deutlich höhere Anzahl der Sonnenstunden und eine dadurch resultierende bessere Reife der Trauben.
