2010 Canon, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1066784 96 points James Suckling

 Wonderful nose with strawberries, cherry blossom, and vanilla. The red opens up with blueberries, milk chocolate and sweet licorice. Full and juicy on palate with pure dark fruit and velvety tannins. So nicely layered texture and long in the finish with red fruit and crushed chalk. The texture is superb. Drink from 2018.  (2/2013)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Canon 2010 has a reticent nose despite rigorous coaxing. Yet there is certainly good definition and plenty of sharp red brambly fruits within. The palate is much more expressive. It is supremely well balanced with lovely ripe espresso-tinged black fruit and a compelling sense of harmony and focus. The finish is crisp, beautifully defined with a spicy note lingering on the aftertaste. This has great potential - but it will need time. (NM)  (11/2012)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Cellar Selection* Powerful, complex and ripe, this is a magnificent and concentrated wine. Juicy blackberry fruits, tight acidity and finely integrated tannins give a smooth, rich texture. This beautiful wine has long-term aging potential.  (3/2013)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Ripe and silky, with a flamboyant edge to the plum sauce, anise-soaked currant fruit and dark blackberry paste flavors. The tannins are dense but velvety, and the finish cascades nicely. A bit of panache here, but this pulls it off. Best from 2015 through 2027.  (3/2013)

89-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 ((an 80/20 blend of merlot and cabernet franc; 3.6 pH; 75 IPT; 14.8% alcohol) Ruby-red. Floral aromas of strawberry, lead pencil and violet complemented by nuances of cola and white pepper. Then chewy but precise in the mouth, with youthful flavors of strawberry and raspberry jam complicated by kirsch and peppery spices. High but harmonious acidity keeps this wine light and lively on the long, smooth finish.  (6/2011)

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
