Canon 2020 released

The 2020 Château Canon has been released today for £1,152 per 12×75, 29.4% more than the current Market Price of the 2019.

Volumes are reportedly down 15% on last year on a wine that is being banded around as one of the wines of the vintage.

For what does look fairly steamy on the release price, it is a chateau on the rise that has a cult following. As you will see from the chart below, the new release also offers better value for money than the 2015 vintage, which carries the same score of 97-points from Neal Martin.

Critical Opinion

The 2020 Canon received 96-98 points from Neal Martin (Vinous), who said the château, “nailed it this year”. Martin explained that the wine had “one of those bouquets that stops the clock thanks to its breath-taking delineation and focus”, while “the palate possesses exquisite definition”.

Antonio Galloni awarded 95-97 points and described it as “an especially airy, understated Canon”.

James Suckling gave it 97-99 points and asked if this “exceptional” Canon might be the, “best of the trilogy?”.

Both Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Advocate) and Jeff Leve (The Wine Cellar Insider) found potential for perfection in the 2020 Canon, rating it 98-100 points.

Perrotti-Brown called it “an exhilarating triumph!”
