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 a selection of vineyard plots growing
on granite slopes in the northern part of the Saint-Joseph appellation. Granite and granitic sands. 30 year old vines, gobelet-trained and trellised on stakes in traditional fashion. Southeast facing slopes, enjoying excellent exposure to wind.

Vinification

Harvest occurs by hand. Vinification in wooden tank, with three weeks in vat. Traditional vinification. Gentle extraction by pumping over. Aging is carried out in concrete vats to fully preserve the mineral expression of this wine from selected vineyards.

Tasting Notes

Black and purple hues in the glass, with an intense nose of black fruit, spices and smokyness. On the palate, the wine is full and finely structured by coated tannins. The mouthfeel is powerful, well-balanced with lovely freshness and a lingering finish.

Food Pairing

Perfect with juicy red meets, or a slow cooked rack of lamb.
