    Description

    The balance and the fruity framework of a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé

    The estate

    Nestling on the heights of the Saint-Émilion limestone plateau, Château Canon enjoys an exceptional location. Situated on the right bank of Bordeaux, this superb estate takes its name from the famous sailor and privateer of the King, Jacques Kanon. Château Canon was awarded the title of Premier Grand Cru Classé de Saint-Émilion in 1954.

    The vineyard

    Château Canon is a Saint-Émilion wine made from vines planted on clay-limestone soils.

    The vintage

    A mild, dry winter preceded heat waves in the spring, with temperatures rising throughout the season. Thunderstorms occurred during the transition from spring to summer. The limestone soils were conducive to water conservation on the plateau, despite a summer marked by drought and intense heat.

    Winemaking and ageing

    Vinification by plot, vatting by gravity in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Aged for 18 months in barrels (50% new), including 4 foudres.

    Blend

    Merlot (75%)
    Cabernet Franc (25%)

    Characteristics and tasting tips for Château Canon 2022

    Tasting

    Nose
    The nose is fresh, revealing the scent of spring flowers through daffodils. It also delights with its depth, led by notes of red fruit.

    Palate
    Balanced, the palate is characterised by a fruity structure, with grapefruit aromas mixed with cherry notes. The texture is full and silky, with a long finish.
