JOHN GILMAN 94 POINTS - "I have loved the domaine’s bottling of Champans for many years, as I would often look to order this at the Cellier Volnaysien restaurant next door to the cellars when I was dining there. Like most of the family’s premier cru holdings, these are old vines, with the sections having been planted in 1985, 1971 and 1934! Etienne Chaix has made a great Champans in the 2019 vintage, delivering a superbly complex bouquet of red and black cherries, spit-roasted pigeon, raw cocoa, a gorgeously complex base of soil, lovely spice tones, a hint of black tea, woodsmoke, gentle notes of hazelnut and a dollop of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and nascently complex, with a rock solid core of fruit, superb transparency and grip, fine-grained tannins and a long, balanced and very classy finish. This is a stellar Champans in the making!"

WINE ADVOCATE 92-94 POINTS - "Richer and more muscular than the Frémiets, the 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Champans evokes notions of cherries, sweet berries, orange rind and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's deep and concentrated, concluding with a long finish. This is the domaine's largest premier cru holding, planted in 1934, 1971 and 1985."
