The 2021 Château Canon has been released this morning.
 
This is a wine we have followed and championed for a number of years and we were impressed with the quality of the 2021 when we tasted at the Château in early May. This release continues a very successful run of vintages for this well-positioned Château, which has contributed to an increase in both stature and appreciation of this fine St-Emilion property.
 
The release price is down on that of the 2020 vintage, something that has not been possible to report for all releases to date.
 
Please see below for scores and notes from Neal Martin (Vinous) and William Kelley (The Wine Advocate)


2021 Château Canon, Premier Grand Cru Classé B, St-Emilion
£540 per 6 bottle case in bond

94-96 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
A brilliant wine in the making, the 2021 Canon offers up aromas of cherries, wild berries, licorice, sweet soil tones, raw cocoa, Indian spices and rose petals. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's immensely refined and seamless, with a lively spine of acidity, ripe tannins and a long, penetrating, intensely saline finish. This beautifully balanced Canon is one of the classiest, most complete wines of the Right Bank in this vintage. Tasted four times.

92-94 points, Neal Martin, Vinous 
The 2021 Canon was picked September 16 to October 6 and matured in 50% new oak for a planned 16–18 months. Around 70% of the vineyard produced the normal yield, which underwent a 50% deselection, yet it still yielded 40hL/ha because the vines did not suffer stress. After mildew, any bunches that showed damage on the stems were removed. Nicolas Audebert told me that there was no concentration or saignée, just a little chaptalization (around 0.5–1.0%, depending on the tank). This has quite a concentrated bouquet of opulent dark cherries, blueberry, violet and just a hint of camphor. The palate is medium-bodied and pliant, with gentle grip, saturated tannins and a judicious touch of spice toward the compact finish. While recent top-flight vintages may well eclipse this Canon, it still stands as a fine addition to the recent roster. Drink 2030-2060


Please let us know of your interest.
 
Take care,
