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.

Bright gold. Powerful scents of floral honey, melon and cling peach, with slow-building smokiness. Deep and fleshy, with sweet pit fruit flavors and a kiss of bitter lemon pith adding focus. Lush melon and peach nectar qualities linger on the long, sappy finish. This is already very inviting.
