Tasting Notes


Aromas of nuts, spices, chocolate powder, then changes to fruits and flowers. Fascinating. Full body, with silky tannins and a wonderful intensity and super polished tannins with a long, long finish. Super refined. Best Canon in years. Try in 2016.


Tasted at the Château Canon vertical, the 2009 Canon is turning into the great wine it was predestined to become. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc (the same as 2010 incidentally), the nose is clearly more flattering, more opulent than the 2010 with an explosion of blackberry, melted tar, kirsch and dried violet petals; here, the Merlot is more expressive than the Cabernet Franc. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a voluminous Saint Emilion with an accentuated savory element that fans out towards the long and persistent finish. It`s here that the Cabernet Franc takes over and delivers that long, long finish. This is a Canon that reminds me of Cheval`s that good. Tasted October 2015.

The Winery

Château Canon

Château Canon was originally part of the Clos St. Martin vineyard, on top of the Saint Emilion limestone. By 1853, under the ownership of the Fontemoing family, the name was changed to Château Canon, and continued to be traded throughout different ownership until finally coming under the ownership of Chanel brothers, Alain and Gerard Wertheimer. Château Canon is planted at 70% merlot and 30%, and possesses 24 acres that are considered First Growth. The wines show to be deliciously inky, as well as classically Right Bank with layers of aromatics, proving to be collectible indeed.
