Croix Canon 2022
Grand Cru Classé
€ 36.30/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
Vinous – Neil Martin – 91-93/100
The 2022 Croix Canon, matured in 30% new oak and contains more
Cabernet Franc than previous vintages, has quite a backward nose initially
and demands coaxing from the glass. It repays patience with blackberry,
briary and subtle undergrowth notes, with a black olive hint. The palate is
medium-bodied with grainy tannins, fresh and saline. This is very well
balanced with more structure on the finish than recent vintages.
Recommended, but don’t be afraid to chuck it in your cellar.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 91-93/100
A terrific effort that will likely number among the values of the vintage, the 2022 Croix Canon offers up aromas of dark berries, petals and warm spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy palate framed by supple tannins and concluding with a saline finish. It will offer a broad drinking window.
