  • A 225-litre barrel of 2020 Château Canon, bottled in formats of your choice, with your name on the back label.


  • A private visit and overnight stay for up to 3 couples at Château Canon.


Fruits, spices and flowers’ notes make it a wonderful and seducing nose. The chalkiness is mesmerizing and gives to the wine a remarkably elegant freshness. The precision of the tannins provides a delicate silhouette to this medium to full-bodied wine. The mineral tension is going through the attack until an endless finale that reveals raspberry and blackberry. An iconic vintage for the estate and an incredible ageing potential. Nicolas Audebert
