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

Granite and granitic-sand. 30 year old vines, Gobelet pruned and trained on stakes in traditional fashion. Southeast facing slopes, enjoying excellent exposure to wind.

Vinification

Vinification occurs in 600L barrels and stainless steel tanks (50/50). Fermentation using indigenous yeasts lasts for 3 weeks. Stirring of the lees (bâtonnage) for 4 weeks. Aging continues on the fermentation lees in 600L barrels for 7 months. Blending and final maturing in stainless steel tanks to preserve the wine’s mineral expression.

Tasting Notes

A pale yellow appearance. The nose is of fresh, white fruit, with minerality and complexity. The palate is powerful with a racy acidity that linger on the palate.

Food Pairing

Best serve with white fish or Asian inspired dishes.
