Canon 2023

Canon

Case Format: 3x150cl

Drinking Window: 2060.0

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.

CRITIC REVIEWS

96-98
William Kelley

This is so elegant and sophisticated already, with a really electric presence and length that goes on and on. Its medium- to full-bodied with an intensity of tannins. It remains weightless and energetic. The pH is 3.41, making this a vivid and lively wine. Currant, orange and stone. Sea salt, too. The limestone soils created a unique wine here in 2023. A blend of 71% merlot and 29% cabernet franc.

Jane Anson

Finesse and saline limestone character on full display, spiced plum, textural as ever, with finely boned architecture, in the line of great Canon vintages, with density to the black fruits and the mouthwateringly precise tannic grip and oyster shell salinity. 50% new oak for ageing, harvest September 6 through to October 4 (with Merlot going right through until the end, unlike many places, here they really waited). 45hl/ha yield, in organic conversion. Tasted twice.
