I am convinced this property will rebound given the investment and management team now in place. However, they are still trying to overcome the problems of the early nineties (i.e., tainted wines with musty aromas and flavors). The 1996 Canon is a lean, austere, delicate wine with a dark ruby color and medium body, but little intensity or length. Angular and compressed, it is likely to dry out over the next decade.

Tasting note


The 1996 Chateau Canon, a distinguished wine from Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, offers a medium to pale ruby-red hue, unveiling a complex bouquet of dark fruits with a chocolatey twist and hints of milky vanilla. The palate is greeted with flavors of black fruit underscored by a prominent cedar character. Lively acidity and firm tannins shape the wine's structure, leading to a somewhat angular mid-palate. The balanced alcohol content complements the wine's profile, although the fruit stretches slightly towards a cedar-dominated finish. This organic wine, matured in French oak, reflects the meticulous vineyard and cellar management, with precise plot-by-plot handling and manual grape sorting. Enjoy this classic Bordeaux blend after decanting for an hour, paired with hearty dishes like roast lamb or beef bourguignon.
