Château Canon is an iconic figure in its appellation, with a parcel in the very village of Saint-Emilion. The 34 hectares of vines grow on a layer of chalk-rich soil veined with clay, perfect for growing Merlot. The Cabernet Franc vines are grown in the better-exposed parcels in order to reach optimal maturity. The harvests are, of course, carried out by hand. When it comes to vinification, each parcel is put in a separate vat in order to preserve their distinct identities. The wine is matured in French oak casks for 18-20 months depending on the vintage. What follows is ‘soutirage à l'esquive', a fastidious racking process that involves separating the wine from its lees in a different way for each cask, without recourse to a pump. The wines have a beautiful, dark colour. There is a certain finesse on the nose through the notes of redcurrant and a discrete, oaky undertone. On the palate, the tannins are round and elegant. Château Canon can be aged for several decades.
