2022 Chateau Canon, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, France

Nestled in the Saint Émilion limestone plateau, Château Canon is an emblematic estate that benefits from an outstanding terroir, which entitled it to Premier Grand Crus Classé status in 1954.

In keeping with the House of Chanel, who have owned the château since 1996, Château Canon epitomises a style that is timeless, elegant and always fashionable.

Producer Tasting Notes
It has everything. Sophistication and substance, scale and restraint, and that Emestone signature. One subtle common thread is the freshness in which the vintage's density is rooted and budt. The first touches are floral, reminiscent of spring flowers md daffodils. These are paired with juicy, pleasingly deep red fruit notes. On the palate, the wine blooms harmoniously, showcasing mastery of a perfectty accomplished village. Cherry rubs shoulders with grapefruit in vibrant Style. The Silky texture seems to coat an electrifiying core. These sensations linger, extendng the tasting experience. The wine remains just right, with an unwavering grip.

(Rating 97 - 99+) Tasted on three separate occasions (and I thought it had the potential to be a perfect wine on one of those), the 2022 Château Canon is an incredible wine in the making, and it might be the finest in the series starting in 2015. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc harvested between August 30 and September 22, it comes from yields of 45 hectoliters per hectare and hit 14.5% alcohol. The élevage will run 16-18 months in just 30% new French oak. As classy as they come, it has a beautiful perfume of red and blue fruits as well as notes of white flowers, truffly earth, woodsmoke, and forest floor. With incredible density, a multi-layered texture, ultra-fine tannins, and integrated acidity, this incredible Canon will evolve for 30-40 years. I finished my rough note on this with "Pure class."

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

(Rating 99 - 100) From an estate that is delivering its greatest run of vintages since the superb Post War series that preceded the frosts of 1956, the 2022 Canon is a magical wine that will be worth every effort to track down. Wafting from the glass with aromas of dark berries, wild plums and cherries mingled with hints of bay leaf, spices and violets, it's full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with huge levels of concentration, vibrant acids and beautifully refined tannins. Concluding with a long, saline finish, this pure, perfumed and ineffably complete Canon is built for the ages, even if its structural polish is such that it will be approachable at a surprisingly early age.

(Rating 96 - 99) The 2022 Canon is elegant and sensual, with virtually no sensation of tannin. A wine with no beginning and end, Canon is totally seamless. All the Canon signatures are there, but woven together in an effortless, gracious expression of this site. It's the sort of wine that is about subtlety and nuance more than power. Dark red/purplish fruit, lavender, rose petal and spice caress the palate, but ultimately, Canon is above all else a wine of exquisite detail. Haute couture. Tasted three times.
