Located in the centre of the Saint-Émilion appellation, the Château Canon vines are grown in clay and limestone soils. The parcels are planted with 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc. The wines are matured in oak barrels (70% new).
Intense aromas of minerals, chalk, bright cherries and stones. Full-bodied, tight and silky; very linear. Like a straight shot. Give it three to four years to soften. Vibrant is the word.
