About Chateau Canon 2005 Saint Emilon, Grand Cru Classe

The famous Premier Grand Cru Saint Emilion Chateau Canon is situated on top of the Saint Emilion limestone plateau. The 82 acre vineyard of Chateau Canon is planted to 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. There have been numerous great vintages made at Chateau Canon over the years and 2005 is definitely one of them! The blend is  70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc.

The Wine Advocate scored this 95 points saying "Tasted at the Château Canon vertical, the 2005 Canon is evolving into a quite gorgeous Saint Emilion. One can still discern those brown spices infiltrating the ripe red and black fruit. There is fine mineralité here, great focus, perhaps just a hint of dried blood that develops with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin. It is a very complex Saint Emilion with immense purity and style, a wine that you have to keep coming back to in order to understand. It's at that pivotal stage between primary and secondary notes, the red and black fruit being overtaken by cedar, morels and a touch of game. It gently lifts and fans out to a quite captivating finish. Dare I say that the 2005 Canon is the pick of the three over 2009 and 2010? There...I've said it...it is a quite brilliant wine. Tasted October 2015."

James Suckling scored this 94 points saying "Aromas of fresh cep mushrooms, berries, spices, roses, and sous bois, give way to hints of milk chocolate and vanilla. Full and rich, with beautifully balanced tannins and a long finish. Loads going on in this wine, yet it remains subtle and beautiful. This needs time. Pull the cork after 2015."

Wine Spectator scored this 93 points saying "Shows a lightly roasted edge at first, with raspberry and boysenberry confiture notes laced with melted licorice, singed alder and firm graphite details. Reveals a fine chalky hint, but this has more bass than treble overall. Still rather tight.--Non-blind Canon vertical (December 2016). Best from 2020 through 2030."

Wine Enthusiast scored this 93 point saying "Freshness and richness combine in this wine. There’s a eucalyptus freshness that goes with the intense acidity. But alongside this is the dark, dense blackberry fruit that layers with the hints of wood. Keep this for six years before tasting, and then for many more."
