Champoux wines always have excellent body. This year follows that history. We like the complex nose the wine presents as well as the depth of fruit. The grapes for this wine were fully ripe but have enough acidity to preserve freshness. The tannins are very refined and soft, just as we like them. The Wine Spectator says, "Lithe and beautifully focused, with a laser beam of blackberry and currant fruit cutting through the firm tannins and flashes of sage, roasted red pepper and peppery spice. The finish sails on nicely. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2009 through 2015. 785 cases made. 92 points
