Wine AdvocateThe finest offering from the Canon-Fronsac appellation, Vrai Canon Bouche's 2008 was made from remarkably low yields of 20 hectoliters per hectare (about one-half to one-third of normal). The wine achieved 14.5% natural alcohol, and boasts stunning concentration, full body, and a gorgeous bouquet of spring flowers, blueberry pie, black raspberries, and charcoal. Dense and full-bodied with stunning purity, good acidity, and a 30-second finish, it is a blend of 98% Merlot and 2% Malbec. A superb over-achiever as well as a sleeper of the vintage, it isn't surprising that Stephane Derenoncourt is the consultant at this estate.
