M. Chapoutier

For the last two hundred years in the Rhone Valley, and today also in the Roussillon and in Australia, Chapoutier has been producing some of the greatest wines: Hermitage, Côte Rôtie, Chateauneuf du Pape, Saint-Joseph, Crozes Hermitage, Luberon. Michel Chapoutier is one of the most highly regarded winemakers in France. Since taking over his family firm in 1990 at age 26, Michel Chapoutier has transformed the winery into the leading Rhône Valley producer. He combines the modern and the traditional: crusading for biodynamic winemaking, while expanding operations around the globe and experimenting with cutting edge winemaking techniques.

Tasting Notes

A stylish red. A fruit palate of black berries and piercing black fruit, raspberry and spicy pepper. Hints of chocolate and liquorice on the end. A stylish, elegant wine with a super bouquet, soft and velvety.

Food Matches

Great with beef stew or for those of you who don't want meat, try with French onion soup.
