90 Points, Robert Parker
"The strongest effort from Canon since 1982 and before 2009, the 2007 (75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc) exhibits a dark ruby/purple color along with a beautiful bouquet of crushed rocks, boysenberries, blueberries, black raspberries, and licorice. The soft tannins, classic feel and texture, and medium to full-bodied, lengthy finish with no hard edges make for an enjoyable, potentially complex wine to drink over the next 15 years."
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Canon has a light and pleasant but, I have to say, slightly weedy bouquet that is simply missing the intensity of either Troplong-Mondot or Canon-la-Gaffelière. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannin on the entry, game and leather infusing the dark berry fruit with a healthy pinch of white pepper on the finish. It's actually one of the better bottles that I have tasted, although Nicolas Audebert is producing far superior wines nowadays. Tasted February 2017.
