The Intense Expression of a Charming Saint-Emilion

A First Grand Cru Classe B of Saint-Emilion, Chateau Canon joins a small circle of the greatest wines of the Right Bank of Bordeaux.

Masterfully led by the talented Nicolas Audebert, the wines of the property are now considered some of the greatest of the appellation. They are known for the elegance of their style, their precision and their depth.

A real favorite from this vintage of challenges and contrasts, the Chateau Canon 2017 rewards the mastery and technicality of the estate teams. In a blend dominated by Merlot (77%), complemented by Cabernet Franc (23%), the Chateau Canon 2017 shines with an alluring character.

Intense and beautiful, the bouquet opens with pure and crisp fruit notes, evoking blackcurrant, blueberry and cherry. Fresh herbs then appear, among them menthol notes and eucalyptus. On the palate, the wine explodes with flavors and reveals a texture that is silky and mellow, almost sensual as it unfolds with purity and delivers a delicately mineral extension with a saline touch, the fingerprint of the greatest limestone terroirs. A sensual Saint-Emilion that is simply divine.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Canon bursts from the glass with expressive notions of baked black cherries, kirsch, plum preserves and black raspberries plus hints of red roses, Ceylon tea, black olives and fertile loam. Medium-bodied, the palate is wonderfully elegant and refined, with a soft, finely grained texture and seamless freshness, finishing long and mineral laced. The blend is 77% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc and it was aged for 18 months in French oak, 50% new.
