Full-bodied, serious and loaded with tannin, it offers impressive currant and darker fruits, tobacco leaf and crushed rock like aromas and flavors that continue to gain depth and richness with time in the glass. It should hit full maturity at around age 10, and nicely for a decade or more after that. - Jeb Dunnuck

Brooding aromas of blackberry, cassis, black cherry and chocolate, with a hint of violet lift from the Cabernet Franc. Supple, saline and vinous, offering superb energy and definition to its concentrated purple fruit and cocoa powder flavors. Conveys a strong impression of soil character. Finishes with a firm spine of fine-grained tannins and terrific verve and length. An outstanding showing today.

The 2012 Champoux is about two-thirds cabernet franc, with the balance merlot and cabernet sauvignon. It’s dark and warm at the outset, with scents of plums glazed with warm brown sugar, a hint of mocha emerging with air... The 2012 Champoux is about two-thirds cabernet franc, with the balance merlot and cabernet sauvignon. It’s dark and warm at the outset, with scents of plums glazed with warm brown sugar, a hint of mocha emerging with air. The texture is a marvel, dark, suave, as plush as suede, with a lean mineral frame that gives the wine its length and gravitas. Cellar it for a year, then serve with steak.
