The Canon 2011 is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc picked from 7th until 17th September. One of Saint Emilion's highlights it has a lovely bouquet with wild strawberry and dark plum aromas that are very well defined and quite powerful in the context of the vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins a silky smooth texture and a very composed very pure finish that delicately caresses the mouth. The acidity is nigh on perfect lending it a sense of weightlessness. This is a great 2011 and one of Saint Emilion's top crus. Tasted April 2012.

A super effort from Chateau Canon, this property, owned by the proprietors of the haute couture house of Chanel, has turned in a stunningly rich 2011 Canon with a full-bodied texture and surprising concentration and purity. It is a noble, intense Canon with sweet tannin, lavish concentration (atypical for the vintage), and a stunningly long finish. It should drink well for two decades, and will always be one of the major stars of the vintage. Bravo! - Robert Parker

A young red with polish and poise. It sneaks up on you. Full body with plum, blackberry and light mineral and chalk undertones. Extremely fine tannins that build on your palate. The texture makes this wine outstanding... A young red with polish and poise. It sneaks up on you. Full body with plum, blackberry and light mineral and chalk undertones. Extremely fine tannins that build on your palate. The texture makes this wine outstanding. Try in 2017.

This has a clean sleek profile of fresh plum and raspberry coulis relatively light-handed toast and nice flashes of anise and mineral on the silky finish.-J.M.

The wine is aged in 60% new oak. Purple with a reddish pink hue. Black fruits grilled meat and spice pair nicely with graphite truffle and cheese rind on the palate. Fine grained tannins alongside firm acidity that provides lift on the midpalate and leads into the flavorful but grippy finish. The house of Chanel made great strides in this vintage. Enjoy 2019-2029.
