Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Château Canon, 1er Grand Cru Classé, St Emilion, 2015

Canon's terroir on the limestone plateau to the west of St Emilion has never been in doubt. John Kolasa has worked tirelessly to improve the health of the vines and rediscover the Canon's glory days. The 2009 and 2010 hinted at what this estate is capable of. 2015 confirms that this is now one of St Emilions leading wines. The new technical director, Nicolas Audebert, formally of Cheval des Andes has had a dream start to his tenure. The 2015 Canon is such an assured wine, brimming with energetic dark perfumed fruit, hints of graphite, violets and sandalwood. There is wonderful purity to the dark sultry fruits: luminous, polished, sweet, vital; it is utterly engaging. Dark chocolaty mulberry flavours are interspersed with high toned cranberry notes, complemented by the wonderfully sleek, pure cassis coated tannins. A tremendous Canon! Produced from 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc.

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.
