ABV: 13.5%
Region: Rhône
Country: France

Champon’s originates from 3 Parcels (Champon, Plomb and Cognet) and is barrel-aged for 24 months.

“Medium to full-bodied, it boasts a rich, velvety mouthfeel and a long, concentrated finish. Aged in 30% new oak (400-liter barrels), it’s a ripe, lush effort that should drink well for more than a decade.” 92-94 Points, The Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski, January 2022

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Domaine Pichat has 4.5 hectares of vineyards in several areas such as Champon’s, Cognet, le Plomb, Fongeant, la Gerine, les Grandes Places or La Caille for Condrieu. The work is different in each plot. They adapt to the type of soil and the layout and exposure of each one. The only goal is to produce the healthiest grapes and mature as much as possible. All the work in the vineyards and treatments performed are sustainable, with no use of pesticides or insecticides and the vast majority of their crop protection products are certified organic.

Plot selection on high soil schist

90% from Champon’s, 10% Cognet, Le Plomb, all northern sector.

The Domaine Pichat has, in recent years, acquired new temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The Domaine combines modern and traditional techniques. For the majority, maturation is done entirely in barrels of 400 litres.

Destemmed, first juice cooled 12 hours at 8-9°C, then 3-4 week vinification, pumping overs, cap punching,

Aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

Wine Advocate

The 2020 Cote Rotie Champon’s is a ripe, purple raspberry-scented wine, with hints of dried spices and crushed stone. Medium to full-bodied, it boasts a rich, velvety mouthfeel and a long, concentrated finish. Aged in 30% new oak (400-liter barrels), it’s a ripe, lush effort that should drink well for more than a decade. 92-94 Points, Joe Czerwinski, January 2022

Jeb Dunnuck

As always, the 2020 Côte Rôtie Champon’s is darker and more mineral-laced, with beautiful, smoky black fruits, iron, game, and crushed stone-like aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it’s another tannic, age-worthy wine in the lineup that needs to be forgotten for at least 4-5 years. It’s impressive, though, and well worth seeking out. 94+ Points, December 2022.

Food Pairing

The perfect partner for meat dishes. Beef casseroles, hearty stews, Moroccan lamb barbecues and rich sausage casseroles such as a cassoulet.
