Wine Critic Reviews:

A deep garnet hue. The nose is paradoxically intense but somehow compact and coiled up with scents of minerals, black cherries, cassis and oyster shells. Great definition and tension though. The palate is very well balanced with a firm structure, fine, grainy tannins and a firm grip. Blackberry dominating the precocious, persistent finish with a touch of plum on the aftertaste. Immense potential... eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Canon: Centuries of history have seen Chateau Canon rise to fame, and today it's one of the most reputable wineries in Saint Emilion. Given the level of competition, that's not a small feat. Chateau Canon makes very classy Bordeaux reds, with eloquent terroir expression and seemingly infinite layers of flavor and texture. Drinking a Canon is like trying to solve a puzzle, one that seems to change and shift as time goes by. It's so easy to get lost in the wine, and given how delicious it is, getting lost is probably the best idea. The wines make for great conversation starters and are worthy of any wine lover's collection. Give them several years, and they'll become even more astonishing. There is no wrong choice with Chateau Canon.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
