Notes
The 2020 Canon is composed of 68% Merlot and 32% Cabernet Franc. Deep purple-black colored, it leaps with gregarious notions of red currant jelly, fresh, crunchy plums, and wild blueberries, leading to suggestions of cedar chest, violets, clove oil, and licorice with a waft of truffles. The full-bodied palate is chock-full of vibrant black and red berry layers, supported by super-plush tannins and fantastic tension, finishing long and energetic. Gorgeous!

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.
