Story

M.Chapoutier began in 1808, and has since expanded into an internationally recognized domaine. As Marius, Michel Chapoutier’s great-grandfather, always said ‘A good wine is one that beckons us to take another sip’. It was Marius who put the Chapoutier name firmly on the Rhône Valley map in the early 20th century and established its reputation for quality as far afield as America.

Vineyard

The grapes are sourced from 3 areas in the appellation. First, fromFoothills made up of alluvium from a highly decomposed granite bedrock (gore). Secondly, from Granite slopes with more limestone, located in the north of the appellation (Arlettes). Lastly, A later ripening area at higher altitude (Saint-Pierre) composed of granitic sands with limestone and silt deposits.

Vinification

Harvest occurs by hand. Traditional vinification in concrete tanks. Extraction using the pumping over method. 4 week maceration period. The wine is aged for 14 months in oak barrels previously used for one to two vintages.

Tasting Notes

Black and purple hues in the glass, with an intense nose of black fruit, spices and smokyness. On the palate, the wine gives a sensation of volume, is full-bodied on the palate, well- structured, meaty and crisp. This is a powerful, distinguished Cornas, which shows a great deal of balance and finesse.

Food Pairing

Perfect with Duck Confit enhanced by lavender and herbs.
