History of Chateau Canon

Jacques Kanon purchased the vineyard in 1760. He earned his fortune as a privateer and was closely associated with Quebec. However he sold the estate about a decade later to the Fontemoing family, who held it until 1857. The estate was only officially named Château Canon in 1853.

Canon was purchased by fashion giant Chanel in 1996, and the company set about renovating the cellars and vineyards with the aim of modernizing the brand. Much of the Cabernet Sauvignon was ripped out in favor of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, which were more suited to the limestone and clay soils.
