ESTATE HISTORY

Château Canon is named after Jacques canon who originally purchased the estate in 1790. In 1996 it was purchased by famous fashion brand Chanel. Château Canon is one of the oldest properties in Saint-Emilion. 

TERROIR

Located on the south-west slopes of the appellation, the vineyard lies on varied soil consisting of clay-limestone and sand on limestone subsoil.

Château Canon’s walled vineyard lies at the entrance to Saint-Emilion. It even extends into the village, with the Bourg de Château Canon plot which adjoins the Couvent des Cordeliers in Rue de la Porte Brunet. Surrounded by dwellings, this unique 1,500 square metres parcel is ploughed by horse and is hand harvested in traditional style. Planted to Merlot and with Premier Grand Cru Classé status, its grapes are used in crafting the estate’s Grand Vin.

The 34 hectares of vines grow on a layer of chalk-rich soil veined with clay, perfect for growing Merlot. The Cabernet Franc vines are grown in the better-exposed parcels in order to reach optimal maturity.

TASTING

99 points Jeb Dunnuck
One of my favorite vintages from this incredible terroir located on the upper plateau of Saint-Emilion, the 2009 Château Canon is just about pure perfection in a glass. It delivers a monster bouquet of blackberries, raspberries, white truffle, and flowery incense that develops beautifully with time in the glass. Rich, full-bodied, and powerful, it's still classic Saint-Émilion, offering incredible minerality as well as structure. This brilliant wine can be drunk any time over the coming two decades.

Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 Canon is a little reticent to begin, opening out to notions of rare beef, cast iron pan, cigar boxes and cloves with a core of baked plums and mulberries plus a waft of dried lavender. Full, richly fruited and sill quite youthful, the palate has a firm yet velvety texture and seamless freshness supporting the generous fruit, finishing long and mineral laced. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
