Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London.The 2006 Château Canon has a vivid, kirsch and wild strawberry bouquet with touches of orange zest and marmalade, a touch of mushroom in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, sage and melted tar. There is wonderful structure here, superb salinity, completely fulfilling the promise it demonstrated out of bottle. Perhaps yes, I was a little over-enthusiastic at that time, but after ten years it has foraged wonderful focus and vivacity. Seek this out. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

As with many 2006 wines, this has held its colour well. The nose has a sweet edge that is very attractive, with cappuccino notes rather than vanilla bean. A light floral freshness picks things up nicely after the first attack and keeps interest flowing through the main palate. Drinking Window 2018 - 2032. - Jane Anson, Decanter

This elegant, deep ruby/purple-tinged 2006 offers copious quantities of sweet mocha, black cherry, and black currant fruit as well as a hint of powdered rock. A nicely concentrated, medium-bodied, finesse-styled St.-Emilion, it exhibits sweet tannin as well as the potential to evolve for 12-15 years. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Subtle aromas of chocolate, orange peel and flowers. Full- to medium-bodied, with balanced, silky tannins and a pretty finish. Not a big wine, but pleasing and friendly. Subtle and beautiful. Best after 2012. - James Suckling, Wine Spectator
