The Canon 2021 is a blend of 71% Merlot and 29% Cabernet Franc, aged 16 - 18 months in French oak, 50% of which are new. The Château Canon Saint-Émilion Premier Grand Cru Classé has an intense red-purple color and bursts out of the glass with vibrant notes of cherry, redcurrant jelly, wild blueberry and black raspberry, 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 tight black, red and blue fruit layers, long finishing with plenty of exotic spice and mineral sparks.

This 34ha cru belongs to the Wertheimer family, just like Ch Rauzan Ségla in Margaux. This family also owns the fashion house Chanel. Currently, it is director John Kolosa and the young cellar master Stéphane Bonnasse who improve 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 yet elegant, delicate wine that is on par with the greatest St Emilions in terms of quality! Bio-products are used here to treat diseases, but without certification for the moment.
