(from a full 1.1 ha parcel of 40+ year old vines in Champ Canet proper though some of them were planted in 1938 at the same time as the Bienvenues). Ripe but attractively fresh aromas are comprised by notes of mostly white orchard fruit, and in particular essence of pear, along with plenty of floral elements that are trimmed in hints of wood, matchstick and mandarin orange peel. There is excellent volume to the powerful, intense and concentrated middle weight plus flavors that display a refreshing salinity on the driving, complex and beautifully long finale. Once again there is solid structure present so this will require at least some patience. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*
Pale yellow. Aromas of peach, white pepper and fresh almond; spicier than most of the foregoing samples. Dense and intensely flavored, conveying a lightly saline quality to its white peach, soft citrus and spice flavors. A nicely plush, fine-grained midweight with excellent class and length. Finishes quite firm, with a strong citrus spine. (ST)
The Boudot family has produced an absolutely stellar example of Champ Canet as well in 2017. The wine delivers a fine aromatic constellation of white peach, apple, chalky minerality, orange zest, spring flowers and a nice touch of new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, fullbodied, long and very racy in profile, with a lovely core, excellent cut and grip and a very long, properly youthful and zesty finish.
