Why We're Buying
Château Canon (Saint-Émilion Grand Cru) is a Bordeaux icon. The grand vin has been considered one of the top wines in Saint Émilion since the early 20th century.
Sleek, elegant and appealing even before you get your nose near the glass. Aromatically it is deep and rich, and then it revs up and takes off. Dense, compact and intense, zingy limestone vibrancy and grip. Winemakers say they are looking for balance all the time, but here you feel it, with tiny pulses of electricity that appear from beginning to end of the palate. Salinity on the finish with gunsmoke and extremely moreish blueberry and blackberry fruit, with a creamy texture as things open up. 50% new oak.
