Notes
An enjoyably melted tannic structure, with the white pepper and saffran lick of limestone, sappy rise on the finish, with raspberry, redcurrant, crushed roses, generous and creamy through the mid palate (although you might want to head to the 2009 at this point for an even clearer example of that, as Canon takes time to reach its peak). This has poise and delicacy, and excellent balance. 36hl/h yield, 80% new oak, 3.7ph, harvest September 29 to October 9. John Kolasa's last vintage, with current director Nicolas Audebert overseeing ageing.

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.
