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.

Yellow-gold. Wonderfully complex bouquet of spicy citrus, pear and melon complicated by dusty minerals, smoky lees and fresh rose. Fleshy but focused on the palate, offering spicy orchard fruit flavors, lemon pith and sweet tangerine on the finish. Gained weight with air without any loss of energy or clarity, picking up exotic spice and licorice flavors with air. There are only 228 cases of this juice.
