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 appellation was initially applied only to the village and surrounding area of Crozes-Hermitage, on account of the notoriety won by several parcels of vineyards selected as Hermitage A.O.C. (Controlled Appellation). It is now a well known wine. The soil is composed of high alluvial deposit terraces with a lot of shingles. The sites used for this Crozes-Hermitage are on slopes directed to the South slightly. Crozes-Hermitage �Les Meysonniers� comes from the vines which are at least 25 years old. The grapes are hand-h arvested at maturity and is vinified in a traditional way with pumping-over and treadings in concrete tanks. The wine is mainly aged in concrete tanks for around 12 months.
