Château Canon 2012

This is another good wine from the tiny subregion of Canon-Fronsac near Saint-Émilion in Bordeaux.  Fresh aromatics of ripe plums and chocolate.  The palate is balanced, young and fresh with spice and plum characters.  A very moreish release.

Château Gaby 2008

This is a delicious wine from Château Gaby in Canon-Fronsac imported by Bordeaux and Beyond.  Canon-Fronsac is a very small appellation (about 250 hectares under vine) that sits just west of the township of Libourne close to the Gironde estuary.  It’s surrounded by the larger Fronsac appellation, with Saint-Émilion and Pomerol to the east.  In the glass, the 2008 vintage has alluring aromatics of chocolate and plums.  The finish on the palate is quite long, with a lovely balance and moreish fine grained tannins.  Buy.
