1983 Canon, St-Émilion

SKU #950247 92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark In half bottle, the 1983 Canon is beautifully vibrant and tertiary in personality, offering up a fine aromatic constellation of black cherries, menthol, sweet dark berries, a touch of chocolate, sealing wax, chalky soil tones and a topnote of cigar smoke. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and has lovely mid-palate depth, with melted tannins, fine focus and grip and a long, complex and absolutely à point finish. This is a very underrated vintage of Canon, who had a wonderful run throughout the entire decade of the 1980s. Inner quote mark (9/2020)

K&L Notes

Located directly in the center of the appellation, Château Canon is a St-Émilion Premier Grand Cru Classé (B) property. 21.5 hectares of vineyards are planted to 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, evenly split between the limestone plateau and the clay and loam soils on the côtes. Vinification is highly traditional, taking place in large, wooden vats under controlled temperature. Aging is done for 18 months in French oak, approximately 70% of which is new.
