Château Canon 2021 released En Primeur

  • Château Canon has been released for £1,080 per 12×75 SEP. 
  • Neal Martin gave a barrel range of 92-94 points. 
  • The 2014 and 2017 look good value among back vintages. 

As part of this year’s Bordeaux En Primeur campaign, Château Canon 2021 has been released at €90 per bottle ex-négociant, a reduction of -6.3% on the 2020’s opening price.  

It is being offered by the international trade for £1,080 per 12×75. The 2017 and 2014 vintages have better scores and are available for less. See more Fair Value analysis below. 

Critics’ scores 

‘A fine addition to the recent roster,’ said Neal Martin (Vinous), though he added that other vintages would ‘eclipse it’. He rated the wine 92-94 

‘A brilliant wine in the making,’ said William Kelley (Wine Advocate), who awarded it 94-96 points. Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Independent) gave it a score of 90-92 points and Jane Anson gave it the higher score of 96-points. 

Fair Value analysis 

The new release appears to compare favourably to the most recent vintages, but the Liv-ex Fair Value methodology suggests it is overpriced. 

The 2017 and 2014 vintages in particular have better scores and are currently available for £737 and £700 respectively. 

Although more expensive at £1,570 per dozen, the 2019 still looks good value with a score of 97-points.
