Chateau Canon la Gaffeliere 2002

Another shot treated by Mr. Hennesy. Excellent recommendation from his colleague, Ms. Marina from Chateau La Lagune. She pointed out the reason why I have strong feeling of tannin to Montrose is because I am fond of tender wine, e.g. Merlot instead of Cabernet Sauvignon.

That is so true. Comparatively speaking I prefer right bank than left bank of Bordeaux. Canon, whihc is from St. Emillion sounds more attractive to me as a drinker.

Elegant palate. Peppery tannin with hint of plum and raspberry (?!) Firm oak and well structured. I would see both Montrose and Canon to have similar potential, with Canon to mature earlier than Montrose.

Canon is called canon, now I guess it's probably about the strong backbone power n post attack length that's left in mouth.

I become one of the "victim" from it's powerful shot, "suffering" from it's aftertaste
