Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B 2019


Lobenberg: 80 Prozent liegt auf reinem Kalkstein auf dem Plateau – die beste Lage von Saint-Émilion. 20 Prozent an den Südhängen vom Plateau, mit etwas mehr Lehm- und Sandanteil. 14,5 Volumenprozent Alkohol. 74 Prozent Merlot, 26 Prozent Cabernet Franc. Ganz klar zu lokalisieren: Merlot aus Saint-Émilion. Reich, dicht, mit Power und Druck. Tiefe schwarze Frucht, von Cassis bis zu extrem reifer Pflaume. Extreme Dichte anzeigend. Ein moderner Saint-Émilion, ein Anhänger der schwarzen Frucht. Nur 50 Prozent neues Holz, der Rest ist gebraucht. Keine scharfe Toastung. Es wird nur ganz leicht übergepumpt, der Wein ist also auf keinen Fall zu stark extrahiert. Sehr intensiver Mund. Grandios rassige Frische kommt in dieses schwarze, lakritzige, sahnige Gemenge aus Cassis, Pflaumen und Schwarzkirsche. Sehr lang und salzig am Ende. Der Wein wird zu 100 Prozent entrappt und 100 Prozent der Frucht, die hier wächst, geht in den Erstwein. Ich habe ihn zusammen mit Rauzan-Ségla probiert, der der gleichen Besitzerfirma gehört. Und diese extreme Eleganz kann er nicht ganz halten. Auch innerhalb von Saint-Émilion sehe ich ihn in der ersten Reihe, großer Saint-Émilion, sehr klassisch und sehr typisch. 100/100


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

-- Jane Anson: Château Canon has been taking off over the past few years, and here you see why. Just so much complexity, depth, power, interest in the whole thing. This buzzes with life, rises above the palate, full of gunsmoke, truffle, raspberry, blueberry, so delicious. Needs time but already showing it will be worth the wait. 45hl/h, 3.5ph, Harvest September 11 to October 4, 50% new oak. Thomas Duclos consults. 100/100


Lisa Perrotti Brown über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Lisa Perrotti Brown: Composed of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 Canon is deep garnet-purple in color. It offers up fragrant notes of mocha, violets, and licorice over a core of plum preserves and wild blueberries, plus a waft of Indian spices. The full-bodied palate is full-on gorgeous, delivering bright, energetic black and blue fruit layers with a lively backbone and super-fine, perfectly ripe tannins, finishing long, long, long. 100/100


Decanter über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Decanter: Fragranced and nuanced on the nose, full of ripe blackcurrants with a milk chocolate dusting and heady floral aspects that immediately draw you in. Serious in the glass, this is broad-shouldered but carried so well with the fine tannins and round fruit. It's dark in profile, full of blackcurrants, black cherries and plums with touches of dark chocolate, tobacco, coffee grounds, liquorice and clove all wrapped up and neatly presented with clarity and linearity. You can feel the tension on this, so flavourful but so knitted right now, coursing from the start to finish in a straight line but with waves of flavour of softly sweet fruit, medicinal herbs, savoury tones and minty cool elements on the finish. The flavours just go on and on expanding and filling the mouth with an undercurrent of mineral salinity that gives freshness and lifts the palate but also keeps everything straight and in line. Beautifully handled with such poise. Really captivating. Drinking window: 2028-2050. 98/100


Galloni über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Galloni: The 2019 Canon is creamy and layered. A wine of immense charm and sensuality, the 2019 is immediately appealing today, but also clearly has the potential to age for many decades. The 2019 is not as exuberant as most recent vintages, and yet its balance is simply magnificent. Readers can expect an aristocratic Saint-Émilion that is holding so much in reserve. Patience is key. Tasted three times. 98/100


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

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2019 Château Canon is another brilliant wine from this talented team that delivers everything you could want from this incredible terroir located on the upper limestone plateau. Based on 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc, it has a pure, incredibly refined, yet still powerful profile that takes time to unwind. Offering up beautiful notes of black raspberries, wild strawberries, spring flowers, chalky minerality, and graphite, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a layered, multi-dimensional mouthfeel, ultra-fine tannins, and a finish that's something to behold. This isn't the massive style of the 2015 and reminds me slightly of the 2016. It's perfectly balanced and, again, the purity and finesse are off the charts. It needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years and enjoyed over the following 2-3 decades. Hats off to Nicolas Audebert for another sensational wine. 98/100


Vinum über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Vinum: Die Aromatik bleibt diskret, doch im Mund offenbart sich die ganze Klasse eines ausserordentlichen Terroirs, die umwerfende Seidigkeit und Frische, die absolute Qualität der Tannine, die deliziöse, elegante Saftigkeit, Raffinesse und schiere Mineralität und Transparenz. 19.5/20


Parker über: Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Parker: The 2019 Canon has turned out brilliantly in bottle, wafting from the glass with complex aromas of raspberries and red plums mingled with notions of raw cocoa, dark chocolate, pencil shavings and rose petals. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and multidimensional, it's one of the most refined, elegant right bank wines of the vintage, with a deep core of fruit, beautifully refined tannins, lively acids and a long, perfumed finish. This is a superb achievement for Nicolas Audebert and his team. 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.
