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.

Vineyards are situated ona quaternary terrace, with a surface of shingles coming from the former bed of the Rh�ne. The grapes are carefully selected during the harvesting. Compulsory to obtain the Appellation, this sorting allows to have the best bunches of grapes. The vinification is carried out in the traditional way in concrete tanks. This is an about three-week fermention with a high temperature to ensure an optimal extraction of the colour and tannins. Aging takes place mainly in concrete tanks between 12 and 15 months.
