A “hidden gem” from Bordeaux: Château Canon Chaigneau 5-bottle vertical.
Château Canon Chaigneau Lalande-de-Pomerol 5-Bottle Vertical Set: 2019, 2018, 2015, 2014, and 2011.
“A terrific buy… a hidden gem.”
— Jeb Dunnuck
Canon Chaigneau’s terroir is 21 hectares of clay & limestone with iron deposits, at the highest point of the Néac plateau, and in the continuity of the most prestigious part of the Pomerol plateau. They are located ½ mile from Château Petrus.
The wines are crafted by Thierry Garnaud, who was winemaker at Château Cheval Blanc for 38 years.
The wine is composed of Merlot (92%), Cabernet Franc (5%), and Pressac (3%), all sustainably grown. The estate is in the process of converting to organic viticulture. This wine is a terrific value because Lalande-de-Pomerol has historically been underestimated as an appellation.
We offer Canon Chaigneau’s wines to you exclusively as a vertical set for you to explore. The vintages included are 2019, 2018, 2015, 2014, and 2011 (1 bottle of each). These are all suave, fine, rich wines that are balanced, with beautiful aromatic complexity, typically with notes of truffle, spices, cocoa and black fruits. It is a joy to explore the unique nature of each year’s growing characteristics, as well as discover how they mature over time.

Sustainability in Burgundy Seminar 11/11.
Please join us on Friday, November 11 for the opening seminar of the 2022 Boulder Burgundy Festival, featuring wine writers Esther Mobley and Elaine Brown and Frasca wine director Carlin Karr.
“It’s a crucial time to look at the future of Burgundy in the midst of warming temperatures and vintage variability,” says Elaine (below). “Producers are doing what they can to foster greater resilience in the vineyards and in their communities in the face of climate change. Personally I am thrilled to converse with Carlin and Esther for this seminar — it is rare to have three leading experts in wine come together in this way, and on such important topics too. Plus, the wines we chose are going to crush it.”
