Notes from the Producer: Suave, complex, yet easy drinking, not over extracted with notes of truffle, cherry, almonds, a superb value.
‘.. impeccably made wine, the 2019 Château Canon Chaigneau sports a dense purple hue as well as a great nose of wild strawberries, darker cherries, leafy herbs, and spring flowers. Soft, supple, and just undeniably delicious, it’s a terrific buy for those looking for a great Bordeaux to drink over the coming decade.’ Jeb Dunnuck, 92
‘The 2019 Canon Chaigneau has developed beautifully.. Ample and caressing in feel, the 2019 is quite attractive. Dark red/black fruit, mint, spice and floral accents play off the wine's considerable richness nicely. Time in the glass brings out its resonance and overall character. The 2019 is impeccable.’ Antonio Galloni, 91
