The second wine of Château Canon. Delicious. A little sweet point and then a dry pure volume, silky and correct. Maturing spicy plummy fruit. Gorgeous supple feel. The changes at Canon beginning to take effect with this vintage and it is a joy. Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 Rating: 91-91 L&S (Apr 2017)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Richly fruity, soft and not terribly complex, but pleasant and mouthfilling, the medium-bodied 2012 Canon Croix is best drunk over the next decade. Drinking range: 2015 - 2025 Rating: 86 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, (Sep 2017)

Croix Canon is made from a blend which combines a majority of Merlot with a smaller quantity of Cabernet Franc. The wine is then aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, including a small proportion of new barrels to preserve aromatic balance and freshness of the fruit. This is a complex wine, with fruity and mineral notes, a taut, well-integrated texture and a harmonious aromatic range. Winemaker's notes (Jul 2017)
