Chateau Canon 2012

  • The terroir of Canon-Fronsac is a geological extension towards the southwest of the great appellation of Saint-Émilion. One finds there the “calcaires à astéries” a limestone geological formation unique to France and found in this region giving the wine a distinctive character. To the north extend the vineyards of Fronsac.
    The perfect exposure of this vineyard and the traditional methods of winemaking give rise to colourful wines, full-bodied and made with finesse.
    The wine is matured in oak barrels (30% new) for 20 months.

  • This is another good wine from the tiny subregion of Canon-Fronsac near Saint-Émilion in Bordeaux.  Fresh aromatics of ripe plums and chocolate.  The palate is balanced, young and fresh with spice and plum characters.  A very moreish release. Rating: Good, Tasted: 2015, Sean Mitchell, The Grape Observer   
    “Une robe intense et profunde, un nez puissant et gourmand aux nuances cassis et myrtilles rehausse d’un boise grille délicat, quant a la bouche, elle emporte l’adhesion par son ampleur, sa couleur, ses tanins veloutes laissant une impression d’elegance, une bouteille raffinee a savourer avec des amateurs de beaux flacons.” NOTE FROM THE GUIDE HACHETTE 2015
