Having been established in the late 1700s, the wine we know today as Canon is due to the management and visionary methods of John Kolasa, who joined forces with the owners of Chateau Rauzan Segla (in Margaux) and Canon in the early '90s. Quality improved quickly for both estates, but it was only in the last decade that we witnessed Canon's rise to eminence. The 2009 Chateau Canon may be one of the greatest wines they have ever produced. ✦ Canon St. emilion 2009 JS 96 » $155 "...Fascinating. Full body, with silky tannins and a wonderful intensity and super polished tannins with a long, long finish. Super refined. Best Canon in years." (119066) undeniable proMinence s ituated in the northern most part of the St. Estephe appellation, and in one of the few walled-in vineyards in the region, Calon-Ségur represents classicism. Still under the direction of Madame Denise Gasqueton in 1995, it is a treasure for the fan of traditionally-styled Bordeaux, and an irrefutable standout of the '95 Bordeaux vintage. Almost impossible to read in its youth, as were most wines from this difficult vintage, yet time has shown its true charms. The '95 Calon Ségur has emerged as a classic Bordeaux at the very start of its drinking window. ✦ Calon Ségur St. estephe 1995 JS 97 » $145 " of the best Calons ever It's finally opening up and giving real pleasure now like so many 1995 Bordeaux at the moment." (111980) MoRRell GifT CARdS are a great way to let your friends choose their favorites among thousands of the world's finest wines and spirits.
