 tasting note





















label Château Canon-Moueix, Canon-Fronsac 1986
Quite good. Classic claret nose with hints of herbs and spice. Fairly firm on the palate with good grip and length but a little coarse. Rustic, decent, but lacking a little class. Try remaining bottle in 1998 (37.5cl) (09/96) This has actually improved a little. Nose is cedary with nice cassis fruit, but a definite stalky, herbaceous edge detracts slightly. Palate has mellowed a little and it's a pleasing, chewy, enjoyable mouthful of claret with a long finish and just a lingering impression of leanness and slightly bitter tannin. Not bad. (37.5cl) (02/98)
