Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Canon 1er Gr.Cr.Cl.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. Vielleicht fehlt ein bisschen die fruchtig dichte Mitte um ein ganz großer Wein zu sein, aber ziemliche Perfektion in einem großen St Emilion Jahr. 97-98/100


Suckling über: Chateau Canon 1er Gr.Cr.Cl.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


NM über: Chateau Canon 1er Gr.Cr.Cl.B

-- NM: 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 Gr.Cr.Cl.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


Gerstl über: Chateau Canon 1er Gr.Cr.Cl.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 Gr.Cr.Cl.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


Wine Enthusiast über: Chateau Canon 1er Gr.Cr.Cl.B

-- Wine Enthusiast: Barrel Sample. Made from beautiful Merlot that's spiced by a quarter of Cabernet Franc, this is a finely balanced wine. It has wonderful juicy fruit that is dark and structured. The wine has power along with style, showing good integration already—rich and tense with tannins. This will develop into a very fine wine. 96-98/100


Galloni über: Chateau Canon 1er Gr.Cr.Cl.B

-- Galloni: The 2015 Canon is one of the undisputed stars of the vintage. An utterly mesmerizing wine, Canon has it all; alluring aromatics; towering structure, fabulous depth, and exceptional balance. The aromas and flavors are remarkably nuanced for such a big wine. Waves of graphite, exotic spices, smoke, herb, licorice, violets and crème de cassis appear at every angle as this utterly profound Saint-Émilion shows off its pedigree. So far I have tasted the 2015 four times. It has never been anything less than sensational. Quite simply, Canon is one of the few truly must-have wines of 2015. It is every bit that memorable. 96-98/100


Gabriel über: Chateau Canon 1er Gr.Cr.Cl.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


Parker über: Chateau Canon 1er Gr.Cr.Cl.B

-- Parker: Composed of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc and aged for 18 months in 70% new and 30% one-year-old barrels, the 2015 Canon is boldly fruited with blackberry preserves, black cherry compote, fruitcake, mocha and plum preserves with suggestions of Indian spices, licorice and black olives. Full-bodied and packed with ripe, rich dried berries and exotic spice layers, it has a firm, slightly chewy structure and just enough freshness (the pH is 3.78), finishing long and savory. Give it another 2-3 years of cellaring to soften its edges and allow its flavor spectrum to fully emerge, and drink it over the next 20 to 25+ years. 96/100

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.
