CHÂTEAU CANON Croix Canon Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2015
92 points “The 2015 Croix Canon is dark plush and enveloping. Super-ripe black cherry plum mocha liquorice and spice infuse this generous open-knit second wine from Canon. All the signatures of the year and estate come through in a very beautiful nuanced Saint-Émilion.” – Antonio Galloni
Croix Canon is the renamed and rarely seen second wine of Château Canon – a fashionable Bordeaux estate that joined Château Rauzan-Ségla Napa Valley’s St. Supéry Estate and Domaine de l’Ile located on the island of Porquerolles under the ownership of Chanel. This stylish property is positioned on top of Saint-Emilion’s much-coveted limestone plateau and with Chanel’s backing you know that no expense has been spared.
In a brilliant vintage like 2015 Croix Canon is a second wine that could give many a Grand Vin a run for its money. Predominantly Merlot with a splash of Cabernet Franc for structure and tannin it is aged in oak for 18 months. What is drawn from those precious casks is rich with blackberry plum cherry crème de cassis red summer fruits liquorice coffee bean leather nutmeg and wildflowers.
