Description: Chateau Canon can trace its modern history back to 1760 when it was Jacques Kanon, a privateer who made his fortune capturing English ships for Loius XV. In 1996 the world famous Fashion House Chanel purchased the Chateau and initiated a period of investment and renovation. Chateau Canon’s 22 hectares of vines are planted with 70% Merlot & 30% Cabernet Franc, the two varieties which are ideally suited for its terrior. Chateau Canon wines posses a beautiful silky, velvety texture, a result of its clay-limestone terrior.
Blending: • 75% Merlot • 25% Cabernet Franc
Tasting Note: Dense blue/purple color along with a classic nose of chalk dust, blueberries, black raspberries, blackcurrants and a touch of wood smoke. Medium to full bodied, elegant and loaded with an inner framework of minerality and moderately high tannin. This backward but stylish, concentrated Canon will benefit from 7-8 years of cellaring and last for three decades.
