    Winemaker Notes
    Chateau Canon offers floral and fresh fruit aromas. This unctuous, well-balanced wine goes the full length.

    98: Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
    The 2014 Château Canon gets my vote as the "wine of the vintage." I have followed this château for four decades and watched it transform from "pretty good" to excellent. The 2014 is outstanding. The wine offers a sophisticated and alluring aroma of black fruit, mineral, chalk, and forest floor. Packed and well-built on the palate, this is taking Saint-Émilion to another level. I tasted this wine amongst nearly 100 others, and it was still able to stand out amongst a group of superb bottles. (Tasted: January 27, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

    96: James Suckling
    Intense aromas of minerals, chalk, bright cherries and stones. Full-bodied, tight and silky; very linear. Like a straight shot. Give it three to four years to soften. Vibrant is the word.

    94: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    The 2014 Canon has a very well-defined, precise bouquet with ebullient raspberry and wild strawberry scents infused with minerals. The aromatics here are utterly captivating. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and very well-judged acidity. There is tension and poise to this Saint Emilion, gently fanning out with a delicate spicy finish that lingers long in the mouth. Though surely destined to be over-shadowed by the extraordinary 2015, this Canon deserves a berth in your cellar.

    94: Wine Spectator
    A fresh, pure style, with lots of floral and black tea notes out front, followed by a tightly focused beam of red currant, plum and raspberry coulis flavors. The finish sports a mouthwatering chalky spine and lovely perfume that should develop more with time. For fans of minerality. Best from 2022 through 2032

    92: Decanter
    Predominantly Merlot from the plateau. Continues in a classical, elegant mould. Pure and fragrant. Refined tannins and texture. Lovely freshness and length. Structured for ageing but guided by the philosophy of drinkability.

    92: Jeb Dunnuck
    While a step back from the 2015, the 2014 Château Canon is still a strong effort that shows the hallmark elegance of the 2014 vintage. Black raspberries, cherries, exotic spices and lots of floral notes emerge from this medium to full-bodied, extraordinarily elegant, seamless Saint-Emilion that shines for its complexity and nuance more than for power and richness. Drink this beauty anytime over the coming 15-20 years.
