Château Canon 2019 - 1st Great Cru Class B

In 1996, the Wertheimer family (owners of the Chanel house and therefore also of Château Rauzan Ségla, Château Berliquet, (Domaine de l'Ile Porquerolles) bought Château Canon.

Enclosed by walls, the vineyard of Château Canon borders the entrance to Saint-Emilion. It even invites itself into the heart of the village, since the plot of land in the Bourg de Château Canon, rue de la Porte Brunet, is adjacent to the Cordeliers Convent. A single vineyard plot of 15 ares, surrounded by houses, plowed by a horse and harvested by hand, according to ancestral practices. Its Merlot grape variety and its rank of 1er Grand Cru Classé make it part of the composition of the great wine.

Smooth, elegant and seductive even before it gets its nose to the glass. The aroma is deep and rich, then accelerates and takes off. Dense, compact and intense, it's vibrant and grippy thanks to its limestone. Winemakers say they're always looking for balance, but here you feel it, with tiny pulses of electricity appearing from the beginning to the end of the palate.

Salinity on the finish with gun smoke and extremely appetizing blueberry and blackberry fruit, with a creamy texture as things open up. 50% new oak.
