The 2011 Champ Canet presents with a fat, ripe and powerful nose. It is Extremely silky, easy-drinking fruit which is round and exotic with pineapple, brown sugar and sweet butterscotch. A classy wine, both minerally and powerful on the finish.
Burghound (BH): 91-94
"This is really quite aromatically similar to the Truffières except that, somewhat surprisingly, the nose is even more elegant. There is a striking combination of excellent volume but also beautiful detail to the concentrated, refined and ultra-pure medium-bodied flavors that don't quite have the driving minerality but display markedly better complexity on the balanced and harmonious finish. This is a very stylish wine of class and grace that should repay up to a decade of cellaring."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 90-93
"Pale yellow. Deep, creamy aromas of ripe peach and apricot verge on exotic. Fat, round and sweet, with the peach flavor dominating the mid-palate. Really lovely fruit for the vintage. This big boy may be a bit obvious but the resounding finish suggests it will give great early pleasure. This is captivating right now!"
