About Maison Chapoutier
Maison Chapoutier, the first négociant and producer to mark their bottlings with braille, was established in 1879 by Polydor Chapoutier. The business has remained family owned since then and is now run by Michel Chapoutier. His hands off approach to winemaking has lead to a resurgence in quality at Maison Chapoutier, which now produces some of the finest wines in the Rhone region of France.
89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2004
($32) Good medium red. Roasted plum and red cherry aromas. Sweet, spicy and pliant, with lively, accessible fruit flavors complicated by exotic hints of orange peel and ginger. Not especially complex but nicely ripe and supple. Showing more personality than the 2000 bottling.
