A very special tasting w/ HK Wine Society...
Our choice as a a group this evening was Ch. Canon. A beautiful wine. A well traveled aristocrat. Smooth & suave, w/ a scent of musk & tobacco... Still vibrant & intense w/ a savoury, complex finish... Absolutely wonderful....
Robert Parker gave it 93. We think it should have been scored higher!
The others, in order of group rank w/ Robert Parker's scores in bracket:
- Ch. Prieure-Lichine
- Ch Léoville-Lascases
- Ch. Cos D'Estournelle (95)
- Ch. L'Évangile
- Ch. Pichon-Lalande (100)
- Ch. Troplot-Mondot (79)
- Ch. Magdelaine (87)
- Ch. Calon-Ségur
- Ch. Le Gay (97)
- Ch. Figeac (94)
Only the Cos continued to show well 1 hour after our ranks had been calculated & filed. In fact, I was astonished to discover it was still quite firm w/ good concentration remaining. Certainly it's finish was extremely long & intense. A keeper for sure.
