Description

Tasting Note:  Canon 2017 takes us on a sensory journey of crisp fruit and aromas of garrigue scrubland. It starts with an explosion of fruit, blackcurrants, blueberries and cherries, that then gives way to a spring-like freshness. The nose reveals notes of broom and rosemary, like a walk through a field of flowers and a forest of eucalyptus. On the palate, we find a whole raft of delicate, smooth flavours. The rich, detailed texture stretches out like Ariadne’s thread, leading to a mineral, chalky finish, typical of the wines from the limestone plateau.

Grape Variety:  80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc

Terroir/Vinification

Vinification:  Separate vinification, vatting using gravity, into conical shaped stainless steel vats with a double walled system for temperature control. Malolactic: 1/3 in new barrels and 2/3 in stainless steel vats.

Ageing:  In French oak barrel, with a medium or medium-long toasting. Racking via the bunghole. Fining depending on the vintage.
