Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: 92-94 (2016 Dec.)

Sexy, rounded and voluptuous, the roughly 1,500-case 2015 Cornas Champelrose is the entry-level cuvée that’s all destemmed and aged in 25% new barrels. It's easily the most approachable in this lineup and has gorgeous notes of cured meats, toasted spice, black raspberries, black cherries and licorice. Full-bodied, layered and rounded, it should drink beautifully on release, but evolve gracefully.

Vinous - Score: 92 (2018 Apr.)

Opaque ruby. Mineral-accented blackberry, cherry compote and violet on the highly perfumed nose. Shows very good depth as well as energy on the palate, offering sweet boysenberry, cherry and candied violet flavors complemented by smoky bacon and black pepper nuances. Closes smoky and very long, displaying repeating mineral and floral qualities and gentle tannic grip.
