Champet is a tiny producer that specializes in the incredibly steep and rocky vineyard La Vialliere. Importer Rare Wine Company says that this can be described as the Chateau Rayas of Cote Rotie because of its old-school, soulful and yet oh-so elegant vibe.
Here is Josh Raynolds' review in Vinous: "Dark violet. Spice- and mineral-accented black and blue fruit aromas show excellent definition and pick up olive, smoky bacon and candied violet notes with air. Sappy and concentrated but energetic as well, offering palate-staining blackberry, bitter cherry and boysenberry flavors that become spicier as the wine opens up. Melds power and finesse with a sure hand and finishes impressively long and sweet, with chewy tannins building steadily. All whole clusters and 10% new oak, a combination of foudres and demi-muids. "
