Canon Guilhem 90swj 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

As with the Puy Guilhem the Canon Guilhem 2009 is the finest we have ever tried. These two brother and sister properties are exceptional in 2009 and the Canon Guilhem offers a touch more refinement and elegance. Still powerful and explosive in the glass the Canon boast more bright cherry notes and more savory qualities rather than the deep dark nature of the Puy. Jeremy Noye "Opaque, this black-purple gem exhibits a formidable blast of French oak, crème de cassis and cola. On the palate, the wine shows outstanding structure, with fine tannins supporting the copious blackberry and freshly turned dark soil flavors. Surprisingly full-bodied and extracted, with graphite and tobacco notes emerging on the finish, where the tannins fan out and demand patience. 100% Merlot...90" SWJ 12/12
