In 1947, Jean-Francis Pecresse's family decided to invest in the Fronsadais region, in the Canon-Fronsac appellation, situated to the north of the Bordeaux region. In 2003, Jean-Francis took over the running of Chateau Canon Pecresse with the aim of cultivating the plots of this high-potential terroir with the utmost care and respect for the environment.
Chateau Canon Pecresse 2021 is a Canon-Fronsac wine made from a 3.5-hectare vineyard that rests on clay-limestone soils.
2021 is marked by a spring frost which spared the vineyard along with a strong mildew pressure that had little impact on the vines, which have been managed in an organic manner since 2017. The relatively mild conditions in September were ideal and helped to refine the ripening process before the grape harvest and maintain their healthy condition.
Vinification and aging
Following manual harvesting in crates, the grapes are rigorously sorted in a densimetric bath. Gentle vinification. Aged in French oak barrels (2/3) and vats (1/3).
Cabernet Franc (30%).
The nose blends fruity (red berries) and mentholated fragrances with subtle smoky notes.
The palate is lively and seductive, with its mineral expression conferred by the limestone soils and its beautifully saline finish.
