Wine tasting notes

Quite reserved and mineral on the nose, with coaxing comes some tayberry and floral notes. There is huge concentration on the palate with an abundance of plums, crème de cassis, stones and mulberry. This perhaps isn't as generous and instantly seductive as the sumptuous 2015, but it is wonderfully sleek, with perfectly integrated tannins, tremendous complexity, a real sense of limestone terroir and stunning tension. Underneath there is a real masculine power, but the delivery is feminine and delicate. Another really stunning Canon!

Expert reviews

JancisRobinson.com (2016) - 18 pts

Tasted blind. Lifted and floral. Looser than some of its peers. But with alcohol on the end. Blueberry notes. Juicy and dense with a slightly hot but saline finish.


James Suckling (2016) - 97 pts

Complex aromas of blackberries, iodine, oyster shell and wet earth. Ever so perfumed. Full-bodied, yet reserved and tight with very silky tannins that are energized and minerally. Takes off at the end. The freshness lifts it. Try after 2024.
