Château Canon Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark, earthy nose, slightly fudgy, tomato leaf, carnations, integrated and balanced wood spice – nice fruit up front, a bit lean on the mp, slightly elevated acids, nice fresh fruit, fairly structured for it’s size, a bit tough, balanced though, moderate finish shows some tough tannins, will need some time (87-88)

A bit Funky on the nose with a dusty character and dried wild cherry fruit accented with green tobacco notes. On entry this is rather soft, modestly endowed with a nice mineral soil tone up front then building gently layered complexity with notes of cherry, tobacco, and oak spice building across the palate. The backend shows better focus as the tannin kicks in, with the finish displaying excellent length and ripe fruit with only a touch of vegetal herbaciousness. This needs time to knit together but should improve. 89pts

Well made, full of rich fruit, but a bit oo extracted for my palette. I can't pick a fault with the wine, but somehow it lacks some fun. It ticks the right boxes in quality stakes, but somehow it lacks a little imagination and cunning to make it a great wine. Good, very good, but not great.

Vollmundiger, typischer Bordeaux! Ein wahnsinn Wein! Quasi: 75cl Wahn. Vollmundig, beerig, kräftig. Sehr reife Tannine. Ein absolutes Highlight!

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.
