Country Of Origin: France

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 slopes of this appellation are as steep as those of the C�te-R�tie Appellation. Soils, exposed to South and South-East, consist of granite arena and alluvial deposits of same nature. Grapes are hand-harvesting at optimal maturity. After pressing, the must is cold-settling for 48 hours. Alcoholic fermentation occurs at temperatures between 16 and 18�C with a part ageing in oak casks. The ageing is short, about 8 months, on lees in order to preserve the freshness and the varietal character of the grape variety.
