- 97-99 Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE: "The 2016 Canon makes it a double slam-dunk for head winemaker Nicolas Audebert and his team, as it is the second of two ethereal wines that will put the estate right at the top of the Saint Emilion tree. This year is a blend of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc picked from 22 September until 10 October at 45 hectoliters per hectare. It delivers 14.02% alcohol and an IPT of 65. Matured in 65% new oak, it has a compelling bouquet with intense black cherry and blueberry fruit, a tincture of oyster shell, all with exquisite definition. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, and again, there is stunning, almost ineffable precision. It is attired in a seamless texture with real density yet weightlessness on the finish. The persistence on the aftertaste is extraordinary. I composed this entire tasting note after spitting out the wine, but I can still feel my mouth tingling now. The 2015 was magnificent, but could this 2016 surpass that? "The 2016 is more Canon in style, more classic," commented Nicolas, and he could be right, although intuition tells me that the 2015 might be a hair's breadth better. I would not refuse either if they were opened before me."

- 96-98 Punkte WINE ENTHUSIAST: "Barrel Sample. A powerful, concentrated and superripe wine, this is major. The wine's juicy black-plum fruit balances its dark tannins and density. You can sense the impressive future for this structured wine."

- 95-98 Punkte WINESPECTATOR: "Vivacious and integrated already, with plum, raspberry and cassis notes matched by a bright floral hint and a flash of rooibos tea. Refined minerality through the finish. Ample depth, but it is defined by its purity and drive."

- 91-94 Punkte VINOUS Antonio Galloni: "The 2016 Canon is a wine of pure sophistication and polish. A rush of red cherry, plum, mint, rose petal and blood orange gives the 2016 its sexy, racy personality. Underlying veins of minerality and salinity provide finesse and persistence. In 2016, Canon is pure class. It doesn't reach the stratospheric level of the 2015, but that is too much to ask in a vintage that presented significant challenges in the vineyard. Tasted four times."

- 97 Punkte FALSTAFF: "Dunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung, eher rotbeerig, saftige Kirschenfrucht, etwas Heidelbeere, ein Hauch von Nougat, kräuterwürziger Touch. Saftig, angenehme Extraktsüße, reife Herzkirschen, feine, tragende Tannine, sehr gute Länge, baut sich gegen Ende auf, elegant und anhaltend."

- 98 Punkte DECANTER: "This vintage delivers a beautiful, classic style of Canon that is right at the top of what St-Émilion can offer. Compact and dense without being hard, it is finely structured both in terms of the texture of the cassis and blackberry fruits and in the shape of the tannins. It demonstrates a clear minerality and a feather-brushing of violet notes. This is less obviously sexy than 2015, but is a wine that offers a masterclass in what limestone terroir can convey - salinity, succulence, hints of austerity and reserves of power. I retasted it a few times, and the main take away of what to expect is layers of flavour and huge persistency. The details of how they worked the vintage are an added bonus to understanding how they achieved this result. When it started getting hot and dry, they left all green cover on the vines, and did no green harvesting except tidying up in September. The result was loading the vines to avoid over-concentration. 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, with the final blend aged in 70% new oak. 3.6pH."

- 18,5 Punkte JANCIS ROBINSON: "Lively dark crimson. Very smart and complex on the nose - distinctively different. Really focused and rich but not sweet. Real lift and drive. So complete! Opulent on the nose but nothing remotely simple and sweet. Throbs with excitement."

- 18 Punkte R. GABRIEL'S BORD. TOTAL (A. KUNZ): "Seidenes, elegantes, frisches Bouquet, Himbeeren, Erdbeeren, Minze, Pralinen. Ausgewogener, dichtverwobener, frischer Gaumen mit dichter, feiner Frucht, süsser, vielfältiger Aromatik, feingliedriger Struktur, viel feinem Tannin, sehr langer, duftiger Abgang. Kann noch zulegen."

- 96-97 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "Very intense aromas already of pure berry, mineral and spice. Full body yet refined and tight with gorgeous linear and refined character. Beautiful and classic beauty."

- 96 Punkte JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2016 Château Canon is another beautiful wine from this estate, made in a more streamlined, elegant style compared to the richer, sexier 2015. Checking in as a blend of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc all from a magical terroir situated on the upper plateau just outside of the village of Saint-Emilion, it saw a small percentage of the blend go through malolactic fermentation in barrel, and the wine spent 18 months in 70% new French oak, with the balance in once-used. Gorgeous notes of blueberries, cassis, spring flowers, white truffle, and crushed rock nuances all come soaring from the glass and it has notable intensity as well as complexity. Medium to full-bodied, with vibrant acidity, ultra-fine tannins, and a straight, silky texture, I don’t think it matches the 2015 on concentration, but it’s perfectly balanced and has a texture to die for. It needs a good 4-5 years of bottle age (or more) and it’s going to be long-lived. Tasted three times."

- 18 Punkte WEINWISSER: "Tiefes Purpur mit satter Mitte und violettem Rand. Dicht verwobenes Bouquet mit Brombeeren und Lakritze, dahinter Thymian und Veilchen. Der Gaumen ist mit dichter, cremiger Textur und reifen, aber gut bestückten Tanninen besetzt; im Rückaroma klingen Pfeifentabak und rote Johannisbeere an, die lange nachhallen. Setzt dieses Jahr auf die Klassik- Karte und wirkt daher nicht so draufgängerisch wie der 2015er."
