Chateau Canon 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

2007 Growing Season 2007 is characterized by a cool winter, February being a particularly rainy month (with double the average rainfall over the last 30 years). The flowering was a little early, thanks to an unusual warm April (+4°C, and almost 5 times less rain than the average). The summer was rather fresh and overcast, the sunny days of September contributed greatly to a slow and homogenous maturity of the vines. The hard work of our vineyard team, particularly attentive during the flowering and growing seasons, taking care of every plot, allowed us to obtain, contrary to all expectations, a crop of high quality with a very little sorting during the harvest. Harvest Since the 2002 vintage, the introduction of a new harvest reception system has enabled us to take even greater care of the selection and handling of the grape bunches. After a painstaking selection in the vines, the best bunches are taken in small-sized crates to the vat cellar entrance. These are then carefully tipped on to a sorting table, where a team of 6 to 8 people removes any berries that are of lesser quality. After a gentle de-stemming, the berries are then sorted by 10 people who discard any berries which have not reached perfect ripeness. The crop is then placed in small 3 hectoliter stainless steel containers and emptied into the new stainless steel fermentation vats by gravity. Canon thereby avoids any aggressive handling of the crop through pumps and pipes.
