Tasting Notes and Scores
-Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide No 7
A stylish, elegant and restrained 2000, this medium-bodied wine reveals notes of strawberry jam intermixed with black cherries, minerals, oak, and herbs. The tannin is sweet and the mid-palate firm, even beefy. This is an attractive, medium-bodied effort with impressive ripeness, length, and balance, yet it is not a blockbuster. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020.
Another great modern-day Chateau Canon on par with the 2005 even though it does not quite have the intensity on the nose. Yet it has more minerality with a touch of iodine and oyster shells. This seems to have more structure and acidity than the 2005, a slight tinny element that you find in young precocious wines that should disappear with age. Very good acidity and intensity with huge grip on the masculine finish. Less sumptuous and flamboyant than the 2005, but the structure suggests this could be a longer drinking proposition. Drink 2018-2060. Tasted September 2007.
