Château Canon, 1er grand cru classé B 2009

RRP £132

Putting your nose into the glass is like walking through a gate into a wild flower garden: soft, pretty, intriguing, the perfumes draw you in one direction and then another. The wine has a gorgeous, velvety mouthfeel, stroking the palate patiently. Underneath is an energetic core of ripe fruit, hot and long onto the finish.
