The Canon 2022 is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, aged for 18 months in French oak, of which 50% is new. The Château Canon Saint-Émilion Premier Grand Cru Classé has an intense red-purple color and bursts from the glass with vibrant notes of cherries, red currant jelly, wild blueberries and black raspberries, plus hints of cinnamon powder, clove oil, star anise and forest earth. The medium to full-bodied palate is super elegant and complex with beautifully ripe, finely pigmented tannins and bold freshness to support the close-knit black, red and blue fruit layers, finishing long with plenty of exotic spice and mineral sparks. The 2022 Château Canon is one of the highest rated versions with maximum scores of 100 points.

This cru of 34 hectares belongs to the Wertheimer family, just like Ch Rauzan Ségla in Margaux. This family also owns the fashion house Chanel. Currently, director John Kolosa and the young cellar master Stéphane Bonnasse are improving the quality year after year. In 2011, the property was increased by 12.5ha thanks to the purchase of the neighbor Ch Matras, this vineyard was integrated into the second wine "Clos Canon". The terroir of Ch Canon is located at the very top of St Emilion on the limestone plateau and produces a concentrated but elegant, delicious wine that is at the level of the largest St Emilions in quality! Organic products are used here to treat diseases, but without certification at the moment.
