The Domaine Joel Champet Estate
The estate is located in the Cote Brune in the lieu-dit La Vialliere. Joel Champet represents the 3rd generation of winemakers in the family.  His home and winery is perched on the hillside overlooking the Rhone River, surrounded by Syrah vines.  He inherited the vineyards from his father Emile, and his grandfather already owned some land where he used to grow some vines, fruits and vegetables.

The Domaine Joel Champet Vineyard
Joël Champet farms 3 hectares (7.40 acres) in Côte-Rôtie. He only uses Syrah grapes for his wines, no Viognier.  The soil type in this area is schist and the slopes are quite steep at 50-degree angles or more.  Production is about 1,000 cases per year.

Avennia Arnaut Syrah 2013

Avennia Arnaut Syrah 2013 is made of 100% Syrah

For our taste, no one grows finer Syrah in the state than Dick Boushey. We named this wine after the Provencal Troubadour Arnaut Daniel, who invented the Sestina poem form, thus creating a connection between our two flagship efforts.

2012 Arnaut Tasting Note: a tribute to Syrah's feral heritage—black olive, earth, smoked minerals, and cured meat, along with a dollop of black fruits and lavender. The palate is super-concentrated with savory notes and ripe black fruits. The finish is long, complex, ruminating. Massive wine that remains light on its feet.

 


Review:

"This amazing Syrah was aged 16 months in 15% new French oak prior to bottling. The wine begins with aromas of white pepper, smoked pork shoulder, wild blackberry and mocha. There are flavors of blackberry pie, mocha, and black cherry with suggestions of roasted dates. Massive, masculine and tannic right now, this will age gracefully for at least another decade. This is every bit as good as the absolutely exceptional 2012. Give this at least an hour decant before enjoying. (Best 2017-2028) - OB"

The 2013 Syrah Boushey Vineyard Arnaut is a rock star. Offering sensational purity in its meaty, dark fruits, olive brine, beef blood, currants and hints of violets, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, impressive concentration and a great finish, where it shows additional minerality. Coming from the two oldest blocks at Boushey Vineyard, this is a serious, age-worthy Syrah that I suspect will have a Northern Rhone-like evolution. Give it 2-3 years once released and drink it over the following decade or more.

Winemaker Chris Peterson calls 2012 an "Iconic vintage," adding that there were no heat spikes and that it's as good as, if not better than, 2007. I'm in complete agreement with him and loved these latest releases. Chris's wines always have firm, savory characters, yet back it up with serious mid-palate depth and concentration. These are all wines I can't wait to taste when they're at full maturity. - Wine Advocate 93-95 Points

Arietta Hudson Vineyards Merlot 2012

Produced from the oldest planting of grapes on Lee Hudson’s heralded vineyard in the Napa Carneros, this latest offering of Arietta Merlot is one for the ages. Certainly a classic vintage, 2012 delivered fruit with brilliant purity, structure, and a strong sense of place. This unique—one might say historic—block of Merlot shows the best that this variety has to offer in California. Well-proportioned, fresh, flavorful, dark and complex, this wine is sure to impress lovers of Pomerol, and show that California is capable of producing Merlot wines with strength, yes, but also nuance, delicacy, and multiple layers of interest. This wine should continue to open and develop over the next decade, and age gracefully for another decade or two.


Review:

Arietta's 2012 Merlot emerges from the oldest vines on Lee Hudson's vineyard in Carneros. A dark, super-expressive wine, the Merlot is endowed with serious depth, power and structure. Brambly red fruit, smoke, tobacco and grilled herbs emerge from a surprisingly big, structured wine that should drink well for many, many years. -Antonio Galloni Vinous 95 points

Siegel San Elias Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Fresh and delicate cassis tones, a great structure. Draw the cork half an hour before serving and serve at room temperature.

Smooth and fruity on the palate, the wine goes well with pasta, salads.
