CHATEAU VRAI CANON BOUCHE, CANON-FRONSAC
BORDEAUX, FRANCE 2016
Looking for undervalued wine amongst a sea of highly priced Bordeaux? Today’s over-achieving Chateau Vrai Canon Bouche is priced so low you might do a double take. Though this Right Bank appellation might not be top of mind when you think of Bordeaux, it should be if you’re looking for incredible value. Just a few miles from the powerhouse regions of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, the wines of Canon-Fronsac certainly compete with the best of Bordeaux, but with little exported, its favor amongst consumers has slipped dramatically over the years. However, this was not always the case. This historic vineyard country was at one time considered premium real estate. Intimately linked to the Romans, Charlemagne and the Palace of Versailles, it was called the ‘historic cradle of great Bordeaux’ and the ‘sacred hill of the region.’ Though Canon-Fronsac is not recognized as it once was, there’s one thing we know for sure: this region is producing world-class Bordeaux for a fraction of the price, giving us the opportunity to find gems lurking around every corner. But don’t take my word for it, just look to one of the top producers in Canon-Fronsac, Chateau Vrai Canon Bouche. With Stephane Derenoncourt as consultant, this wine has really excelled over the past several years and “is now routinely one of the great wines of this somewhat under-the-radar appellation” (RP, WA). The estate’s 36-acre vineyard has decreased yields dramatically and the results are stunning. With good energy, plenty of concentration and some serious drive, this 92-point 2016 Chateau Vrai Canon Bouche is an unbelievable value at $22.47 a bottle. Being shipped direct from the Chateau, this is an impressive Bordeaux that lives up to the hype. Ready to drink now, jump on this offer to lock in this unbelievable price.
