The velvety, silky style of Chateau Canon is the magical result of the way its grape varieties benefit from its soil. The limestone containing fossilized starfish makes the wines that grow in it fresh, subtle and elegant. They have a remarkable capacity for aging. Chateau Canon is therefore a wine that requires patience, which over time slowly reveals its noble qualities. With the exception of a storm in August, the 2009 vintage is characterized by very little rain. The flowering, very homogenous, started at the beginning of June and color change happened from July 25th onwards During summer, the beautiful days of August and September, with high temperatures and cool nights, encouraged a slow and complete maturation of the grapes. Because of little rain in June, July and August, the berries remained small, revealing a dense colour and beautiful richness. Under these circumstances, the clay and limestone terroir of Canon made the difference, preserving the freshness of the vintage. Perfect weather allowed us to harvest under ideal conditions. The quality of the berries which arrived on the sorting tables made the work of our vineyard team even easier.

The 2009 Chateau Canon is brilliant in every regard and certainly one of the finest wines from this estate I've ever tasted. Based on 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet from a Grand Cru terroir located on the upper, limestone-driven plateau outside of the village of Saint-Emilion, it’s still youthfully ruby-colored and boasts a beautiful perfume of blackberries, black raspberries, white flowers, chalky minerality, truffle, and dried flowers. Firing on all cylinders, with incredible complexity and sweetness in its aromatics, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a multi-dimensional texture, building tannins, and a finish that won't quit.

What a gorgeous nose, with sweet and delicate fruits such as sliced plums that turn to milk chocolate and flowers. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. You want to drink this right away. 75 percent Merlot and 25 percent Cabernet Franc. Barrel tasting.

Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 Canon is a little reticent to begin, opening out to notions of rare beef, cast iron pan, cigar boxes and cloves with a core of baked plums and mulberries plus a waft of dried lavender. Full, richly fruited and sill quite youthful, the palate has a firm yet velvety texture and seamless freshness supporting the generous fruit, finishing long and mineral laced.

Definite wood aromas, the fruit buried under the high toast flavors. This gives dryness as well as extract. The wine comes across hard, tight, almost dark in character.
