Canon 2021

Canon

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 97.0

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.

Jeb Dunnuck

From a château you cant go wrong with, the 2021 Château Canon is another head-turning, elegant, seamless wine that comes from unquestionably one of the greatest terroirs on the upper plateau of Saint-Emilion. Based on 71% Merlot and 29% Cabernet Franc that hit 13.55% alcohol, it will spend 18 months in 50% new barrels. It shows the vintages fresher, elegant style beautifully, with lots of perfumed red fruits, spice, flowers, and chalky notes. These carry to a medium-bodied, seamless, elegant Saint-Emilion that has supple tannins, a notable sense of freshness (although I suspect the pH is solid), and a great finish.

James Suckling

A wine full of finesse and class with fantastic length and polish. Medium to full body with ultra-fine tannins that run endlessly down the length of the wine. Blackberry, graphite and spice. Agile and weightless.
