2011 Canon 75CL
1998 2010 2014
The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, backward compared to more extrovert Saint Emilions such as La Mondotte—a tensile, poised Saint Emilion that is destined to last longer than its peers. Classic in style, endearing and mineral-driven, this is a superb wine from the estate. This is a supreme success courtesy of former winemaker, John Kolasa. Tasted May 2015.
The Château seems eternal, giving the impression of being frozen in time. Located close to the village, its drawing room and courtyard offer views over the ramparts. When privateer Jacques Kanon bought the vineyard in 1760, he could hardly have imagined that 250 years later the estate would be globally recognised for its wine, which is ranked amongst the very finest Premiers Crus. He left it his name, which has now gone down in history.
When CHANEL acquired the estate in 1996 they decided to invest in restoring the full potential of Château Canon for crafting Premier Grand Cru Classe wines. The vineyard, the cellars and all the buildings were given their current appearance. The latest to date is the 18th century residence, entirely restored to the highest standards by architect Peter Marino. This is no ordinary Château. It is a home, a family-owned Château passed down through the generations.
