The 1959 Canon replicates its impressive showing from 2017’s vertical at the property. Clear and lucid in color with minimal bricking, it has a wonderful bouquet with vibrant redcurrant and crushed strawberry fruit, hints of liquorice and hung game. The palate is just as good, beautifully balanced with finely chiseled tannins, a perfect line of acidity and quite a grippy finish. Even though this bottle came directly from the property, I remember the previous example possessing a little more substance on the finish. Nevertheless, it could be considered as one of the last great Canon’s of yesteryear before things went a little wayward in the Seventies and Eighties. Tasted at a private dinner in Bordeaux. Nov 2020.
