External Reviews for Andrew Will Champoux Vineyard Horse Heaven Hills
The Champoux Vineyard, planted in 1972, is five miles from the Columbia River. Here, the cooling breezes of the Columbia River Gorge never cease, creating the perfect conditions for ripening grapes. Right now, this wine is showing many layers of intense flavors - notes of licorice, blackberry, and tobacco - but it will continue to evolve and be expressive for many years to come.
A lot of people have been whispering that this is the finest vineyard in Washington, and while we are always interested in what is being said in whispers and behind closed doors we can't always give as much of our trust to these thoughts as some. Nevertheless we are ready to agree on the terrific sense of body and pronounced strength of the fruit in the wines being made from the various part of Champoux Vineyard. As much as I fall in love with the wines from Champoux, I have to pull myself back and wait for a few years until the true voicing and pitch of these wines comes forward. Again, it is the beauty and compelling nature of this wine as a whole which draws me to it in an almost narcotic way.
