Château Canon

Le Château Canon is inexorably associated with the finesse and elegance of Saint-Emilion's finest wines. The origin of its name is due to Jacques Kanon, a privateer in the Royal Navy who acquired it in 1760. 

Visionary, he instinctively understood the potential of this terroir and had vines planted there. In 1996, Château Canon was bought by Chanel, a company run by the Wertheimer family.

Château Canon was consecrated Premier Grand Cru Classé in the first edition of the Saint-Emilion classification in 1955, a position it has always maintained thanks to the excellence and timeless style of its wines.

Château Canon is planted in a 34-hectare vineyard on the clay-limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion. The grape varieties are 70% Merlot and 20% Cabernet franc. The vines are surrounded by walls to protect them from spring frosts, and the nature of the soils ensures that the grape varieties are always fresh and reach excellent ripeness.

The wines are aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 70% of which are new. The estate produces a Second vin, Croix Canon, with the same attention to detail as the grand vin. 

The Château Canon imposes unforgettable wines of great class, featuring a sumptuous balance between tannic structure, purity of fruit and generosity.

Description Château Canon 2022.

Subtle thread of the composition, the freshness around which the density of the vintage anchors and builds.

Its first facet is floral, evoking the scent of spring flowers, daffodil.

It is accompanied by juicy, red fruits of notable depth.

On the palate, the wine blossoms into harmony, summoning the mastery of a perfectly accomplished vintage.

The cherry responds to the grapefruit, the vibrancy to the substance.

The texture, silky, seems to envelop an electrifying heart.

The sensations persist, stretching the tasting.

The wine remains just right, with an ironclad staying power.
