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.

($250) Dark ruby. A powerful, deeply scented bouquet displays cherry, blueberry and mulberry scents, along with notes of cola and licorice pastille. Lush, palate-staining dark fruit and violet flavors pick up smoke and black pepper notes with air. A sweet vanilla note sneaks in on the long, spicy, penetrating finish. This appears to be the most cellar-worthy of this year's set of single-site wines.
