Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) Youthful deep purple colour. Intense, rich spicy nose is dominated by raspberry fruit. Tasty, rich savoury palate shows good concentration and nice balance. Youthful and quite tannic. Very good/excellent.

Expert Reviews

    "Interestingly, the 2009 Cornas Champelrose is slightly more voluptuously textured and softer. However, I wonder if its sexy display of cassis fruit and extravagant richness is hiding more tannin than is obvious? In any event, it is a prodigious Cornas possessing all the pepper, smoked game, blackberry, cassis, burning ember and scorched earth characteristics one could desire. This rich, full-bodied 2009 should be a singular Cornas to drink over the next 15+ years."
