Château Canon Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Tiefes Purpur, satt in der Mitte, Granatschimmer am Rand. Duftiges, warmes, reifes Bouquet, schwarze Pflaumen, vermischt mit einem Cassishauch, sehr elegant im Ansatz. Im Gaumen sublim, harmonisch, seidige Tannine mit Souplesse und Süsse, erst im Nachklang spürt man das verlangende Potential. Erinnert an ganz grosse frühere Canon-Jahrgänge und lässt vermuten, dass das Team endlich den Durchbruch geschafft hat.

Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

In 1760, Jacques Kanon bought the Saint Martin vineyard on top of the finest slope in Saint Emilion. The improvements made on the estate quickly resulted in the wine's success, and its new name of Canon. The estate was acquired by Raymond Fontemoing, a major Libourne wine shipper, in 1770. In 1919, Canon was purchased by Monsieur and Madame Fournier. They invested a great deal of effort and know-how in the property and transmitted their passion for fine wine to their grandchildren. Canon's sub-soil is full of underground galleries dug out of solid limestone (in fact, a former quarry).The topsoil is clay.Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines are grown in the traditional way. The grapes are hand-picked with two specifics selection on sorting table and the wine is fermented in double walled stainless steel vats integrating a thermo-regulation system. Both Grand Vin and Clos Canon aged in oak barrels prior to bottling. Canon is famous for its power, finesse and tremendous ageing potential.Thanks to its inimitable soil, the wine of Canon has been much appreciated around the world for over two centuries. In 1996, the estate was acquired by Chanel Inc. which is undertaking a large-scale programme of renovation of the vineyard and buildings.
