The 2005 Canon is all brawn and muscle. Chunky tannins give the 2005 a decidedly virile feel. There is plenty of depth and freshness – this is after all one of the very best sites in all of Bordeaux – so the 2005 will hold for many years to come. Dark fruit, leather, smoke, gravel, crushed rocks and spice linger on the potent finish. Tasting the 2005 today really highlights how far Canon has come in recent years
Anticipated maturity: 2021-2045
Tasted blind. Some evolution at the rim of dark ruby. Light, sweet nose. Some real juiciness. Lots of graphite chewiness on the finish. Not yet ready.
