Canon 2013


Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 93.0

Named after Jacques Kanon who bought the estate in 1790, Château Canon has been under the control of luxury retailer Chanel since 1996. They have invested heavily in the estate to produce the best wine possible with no expense spared. The results have been remarkable, with the grand vin consistently scoring in the high 90s in recent years and garnering a devoted following from oenophiles. Its 18 hectares are nearly evenly split with c.55% Merlot and c.45% Cabernet Franc placed on limestone-based soils, to create a balanced wine that glides through rich flavours of dark berry, liquorice and spices. With their own dedicated walled Merlot vineyard found at the entrance of Saint-Émilion, this tiny plot still continues to be ploughed by horse. Taking us through centuries of viticultural history, Château Canon have created an opulent wine with a robust, rounded flavour.



Jane Anson

Softly spoken, raspberry colour, a whisp of gunsmoke, this is a pretty wine, has charm and softly melted tannins. The acidity is fresh on the finish, a little overly so, and you are not getting the concentration through the mid palate to really go thedistance, but there is charm here, it is balanced and drinkable with walnut and salted cracker edging as it opens. 35hl/h, 3.5ph, 70% new oak, harvest October 1 to 10.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2013 Canon is medium garnet in color, with a touch of brick. The nose is subdued with vague notes of stewed black plums and dried mulberries, leading to touches of damp earth, dried sage, and cigar box. The medium-bodied palate still has a good amount of black fruit preserves, with a sturdy frame of chewy tannins and an earthy finish.
