The Chapoutier family have been making wine in the Rhône Valley since 1808. Michel Chapoutier took over the family business in 1990 from his Grandfather to create wines which really began to speak of their origin. Michel sees himself as a 'wine-grower, wine-maker and a wine-lover', all of which have allowed M.Chapoutier to become one of the most recognised and awarded biodynamic wine producers in the world.

 

A continual creator and innovator, M.Chapoutier now has vineyards around the world, but its holdings in the best sites of the Northern and Southern Rhône remain the quintessence of the range. Each site delivers the finest fruit expression of the appellations, and minimal intervention in the winery, plus strict biodynamic policy, ensures that great fruit becomes memorable wine.

The grapes producing this wine come from three different vineyards: �Le M�al� (an old fluvioglacial alluvial deposit soil with numerous shingles), �Les Murets� (granitic arena and alluvial deposits) and �Chante-Alouette� (loess soil with a fine layer of clay and limestone. Grapes are hand-harvested at maturity. After pressing, the must is cold-settling for 48 hours. One third is vinified in big wooden barrels (600 liters) with regular stirrings and the other part in vats. The temperature of fermentation is regulated in order to develop the aromatic complexity of wines (18-20�C). Before bottling, the wine is checked by frequent tastings. These are the organoleptic criteria which will determine the ageing period (from 10 to 12 months).
