2016 Côte Rôtie La Viallière Domaine Joël Champet - 94 PTS - JD

2016 Côte Rôtie La Viallière Domaine Joël Champet - 94 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"A blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier brought up in less than 10% new oak, the 2016 Côte-Rôtie La Vialliere is a beautiful 2016 that shows the elegant, balanced style of the vintage perfectly. Revealing a vivid purple/ruby color as well as complex notes of black raspberry, incense, white pepper, and gamy, bacon fat, it’s medium to full-bodied, has no hard edges, and fabulous purity of fruit. You can drink it today with incredible pleasure, but it will keep for upwards of two decades."

wine enthusiast 91 pts"POINTS
The 2016 vintage produced a classic style of Côte-Rôtie, and the crisp black-fruit character and pronounced herbal accents of this slightly frail but elegant Syrah are inviting. The palate is delicate, suggesting crunchy black cassis nuanced by savory hints of soy, charcuterie and thyme. It's not deeply concentrated but lingers softly on fine, drying tannins and a pleasantly earthen tone. Enjoy now–2025. - Anna Lee C. IIJIMA"

vinous logo"Brilliant ruby. Highly expressive, smoke-accented black raspberry, potpourri, game and peppery spice aromas carry a minerally topnote that gains strength as the wine opens up. Intense red and dark berry, floral pastille and spicecake flavors are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Puts on weight on a persistent, sharply delineated finish that echoes the berry and smoke qualities and leaves behind allspice and cracked pepper notes. - Josh Raynolds"

wine enthusiast 93 pts"Violet petals and pristine black cherries perfume earthier tones of garrigue and bramble in this brisk, freshly composed Syrah. Light bodied and robed with fine, firm tannins, it's a vibrant, youthful wine that should improve through 2025 and hold further. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA"

I Wine Review"Spicy black pepper and very fresh black raspberry show on the nose of this young, fruit forward Côte-Rotie. While fresh and youthful, the wine is also elegant with a sense of terroir, showing notes of dark earth and spice on the finish. Third generation winemaker Joël Champet makes the wine from his 3 ha vineyard, using 90% used 30 hectoliter foudres. 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier"

wa88"Champet's 2011 Cote Rotie la Vialliere is a pretty, elegant and lightly texture Cote Rotie that offers classic pepper, olive, sappy herbs and darker styled fruits in its medium-bodied, mid-weight profile. Soft, supple and nicely texture, it should drink well for 5-6 years. - Jeb Dunnuck"
