The Château Canon was one of the first castles of Bordeaux, where the vines was a main square. Neighbor Ausone or The Canon Gaffeliere, wine, yet the first vintage, never reached the level that could be expected of him. The acquisition of Chateau Canon 1996 by the Chanel nevertheless gave new life to this wine. Indeed, major investments, particularly in the cellar have improved the quality of wine. Château Canon is known for its careful selection of grains in three stages and no doubt the work begun by the field will increasingly fruitful. Taste therefore preferably recent years to take the full measure of the uniqueness of Château Canon.
Canon made a lovely wine in the sometimes underrated 1987 vintage. Medium ruby, with a fragrant bouquet of black fruits and spicy oak, this supple, easy-going, graciously endowed
Fading somewhat but retains herb, rosemary and fruit aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied and firmly tannic. A slight dryness on the finish suggests drinking this now.
