Chateau Canon Saint Emilion 2006

Chateau Canon Saint Emilion 2006

A top class, right bank Bordeaux drinking beautifully right now, though the wine will continue to improve with more time in the cellar. 2006 was a leaner, more classic year showing great minerality with great complexity, finesse and a nice dry finish.

Chateau Canon has a long and storied history as one of the great wines of Saint-Emilion. Always highly regarded, the wine was named a second growth ("Premiers Grands Crus Classe B" in Saint Emilion speak!) in the most recent  classification of 2012. Only four estates earned the higher "A" classification, and each of those sells for hundreds or thousands of dollars per bottle. Only fourteen were awarded the "B" classification, this out of hundreds of estates in the region. In short, this has been and continues to be a benchmark wine.

2006 is a vintage for lovers of classic French style. Derided by many critics upon release as too tannic, without enough fruit, many of the wines have developed marvelously- this wine in particular. The tannins have disapated, though they are still present enough to give the wine nice structure and a dry finish. The fruit flavors are delicate but allow for a transparency to the beautiful minerality present here.

Wines of this caliber from more critically acclaimed vintages sell for much, much higher prices. This is a great opportunity to experience truly outstanding Bordeaux wine with 10 years of perfect cellaring at a comparitively great price. Don't miss out on a great wine for a special dinner, a holiday gift or just a special experience for any wine lover!
