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.

($65) Glass-staining ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of black raspberry, potpourri and Asian spices, with smoked meat and anise nuances. Really alluring on the palate, with a silky texture to the sweet red and dark berry flavors. Picks up an exotic candied flower quality on the back end to go with notes of sweet red fruit and violet pastille. This is delicious right now.
