Notes

This Chanel owned St Emilion property is back on top form. Some lucky customers will be able to taste the 2009 at a dinner at our St James's Street office with John Kolasa. They will find a heady and rich St Emilion with a beautiful sense of precision and poise. There is a wonderful bouquet of attractive minerals and pure black fruit. This is a big, concentrated Canon, but the flavours are both pure and very refined. There is a sumptuous, velvety texture to this 2009. The tannins are very refined and one is left with long flavours of bright, characterful fruit. Bravo.

Notes
A gorgeous caress of aromatics, spice and power. A vintage that took its time to showcase the terroir as it was so overladen with pleasure, richness, alcohol, chocolate and spice in its early years, but it is now begining to show its juicier side, with the saffron and salt-licked minerality coming to the fore. Can be drunk now if opened for a good 2-3 hours, or keep for another 3 years to really reach the plateau, and then it will stay there for a good few decades. Yield 35hl/h, 60% new oak, 3.75ph.

Château Canon

Château Canon

Canon is a 1er grand cru classé, located in the appellation of St Emilion.The origins of Chateau Canon can be traced back to the early 18th century when Jean Biès planted vines around the church of Saint-Martin. Canon is planted on limestone based soils, situated south-west of the Saint Emilion limestone plateau with Chateau Magdelaine lying to the south and Chateau Clos-Fourtet to the north. It was acquired by Chanel in 1996 from Eric Fournier who had run the property since 1972. After the change of ownership and re-vamping of the cellars, Canon has successfully started to regain its former glories.
