From the very beginning, the 2015 Canon has made an eloquent case for itself as one of the wines of the vintage. Multiple tastings from bottle only confirm what several early tastings hinted at: the 2015 Canon is simply extraordinary in every way. Sumptuous and exotic, with no hard edges and exceptional balance, the 2015 grabs hold of all the senses and never lets up. A rush of red fruit intermingled with floral notes, spice and smoke notes effortlessly runs up the wine`s vertical structure as the 2015 thrills with every twist and turn. The 2015 Canon is a rare wine that is both hedonistic and intellectual - well, maybe it is a bit more hedonistic-leaning. It doesn`t matter. Don`t miss it. This 2015 is masterpiece from General Manager Nicolas Auderbert and his team at Canon.
This is the greatest red ever produced here, even better than the great wines of the 1950s and 1960s. Full body yet tight and reserved. Superbly refined tannins. Yet rich and flamboyant. Fruity yet salty and minerally. Electric finish. Stone and chalk…
Château Canon was originally part of the Clos St. Martin vineyard, on top of the Saint Emilion limestone. By 1853, under the ownership of the Fontemoing family, the name was changed to Château Canon, and continued to be traded throughout different ownership until finally coming under the ownership of Chanel brothers, Alain and Gerard Wertheimer. Château Canon is planted at 70% merlot and 30%, and possesses 24 acres that are considered First Growth. The wines show to be deliciously inky, as well as classically Right Bank with layers of aromatics, proving to be collectible indeed.
