Introduction to French Wine In Bordeaux From Canon Chaigneau
Jan 03, 2022

A "Grand vin" from 21 hectares in Lalande-de-Pomerol, 1km north of Petrus , a jewel made by the former winemaker of Cheval Blanc, Thierry Garnaud . A unique terroir: the Néac plateau, a continuation of the Pomerol plateau. One of the finest wines of the appellation, and one of the best value wines in France - medium bodied, not over extracted, complex, suave & extremely drinkable, typically with notes of truffle, black fruits, spice and cacao. Indeed, the Romans were the first to recognize the plateau's great potential for making wines, almost 2000 years ago.

Chateau Canon Chaigneau AOC Lalande-de-Pomerol 2008

The enticing bouquet presents a mélange of red and black fruit, iodine, meat juices and rosemary; it is very Pomerol-like, with black truffle emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied, yet has more weight and depth than 2012. There is a slight coarseness to the tannins at first, but the wine soon mellows and develops what, for 2008, is quite a plush and cohesive finish.

Grapes: Merlot 92% Cabernet Franc 5% Pressac 3%

Culinary Recommendation: To serve 16 C - 18 C. Good match with Grilled steak, meat in sauce, game and grilled salmon

Awards:
91 Vinous
Bronze Medal Concours de Bordeaux
Bronze Medal Challenge International Blaye/Bourg
VIVINO 4.2

Chateau Canon Chaigneau AOC Lalande-de-Pomerol 2015

Some bacon-fat aromas across ripe blueberries, blackcurrants and red plums. Some light, herbal and leafy notes too. The palate has a supple, fresh feel to it, and it holds dark, cherry-berry fruit flavours to good effect.

Chateau Canon Chaigneau AOC Lalande-de-Pomerol 2018

A very balanced, creamy-textured red with blueberry, chocolate and walnut flavours. Plump, rich and well- structured on the palate, this retains a pleasant fresh acidity and is impressively restrained in terms of the alcohol level. Plums and damson fruit, with the signature iron minerality and chewy yet svelte tannins of the argilo-calcaire terroir. Very persistent and, indeed, very promising at this formative stage.
