Located in the centre of the St. Emilion appellation, to the south-west of St-Emilion town, Canon has 18 hectares of vineyards planted with 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc. The vines have an average age of 25 years and are generally planted with a southerly or south-westerly exposure.
Château Canon is considered one of the finest wines in St Emilion today and is classified as a 1er Grand Cru Classé (B).
Chateau Canon 1er Grand Cru Classé is situated on a prime site in the centre of St Emilion, planted on a combination of starfish fossil limestone and clay - prime terroir. "A typically charming and approachable for Canon, the 2003 exhibits a deep plum/ruby color as well as a sweet bouquet of black cherries, ripe currants, and a hint of figs. With lush fruit on the attack, medium body, light to moderate tannin, and excellent texture, concentration, and purity, it should be at its finest between 2007-2018." - Rated 89, Robert Parker
"Aromas of blackberry and lightly toasted oak with just an undertone of vanilla. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a lovely, silky texture. Best after 2010. 3,665 cases made. –JS" -
