Château Montrose is a winery in the Saint-Estèphe appellation of the Bordeaux region of France. The wine produced here was classified as one of fourteen Deuxièmes Crus (Second Growths) in the original Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.
Chateau Canon is a Premier Grand Cru Classe chateau based in Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux. This small vineyard is planted entirely with Merlot which is used in the Chateau Canon grand vin, along with a smaller proportion of Cabernet Franc from the estate's various other vineyards.More than 60 percent of Canon's vineyards are planted to Merlot. Most of the rest is Cabernet Franc, although a small portion of Cabernet Sauvignon survived the cull in the late '90s. The grapes are blended carefully to get the most from each: Merlot brings smoothness, finesse and intense fruit aromas, while Cabernet Franc brings structure and the ability to age.
