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.

($305) Glass-staining ruby. Assertive, mineral-accented aromas of black raspberry and cherry compote, spice cake and licorice. Picks up spicy character with air, along with a touch of cracked pepper. Sweet and expansive, offering energetic red and dark fruit flavors and notes of licorice pastille and mocha. A lively, peppery quality adds energy to a long, precise finish, which echoes the floral note.
