About Maison Chapoutier

Maison Chapoutier, the first n├ęgociant 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.

Expert Reviews

92 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012

Dark ruby.  Ripe cherry and dark berry aromas and flavors are complemented by dried flowers, smoky herbs and licorice.  Deep, rich and powerful but carrying no excess weight.  Closes with strong punch and a persistent note of dark fruit liqueur.  A deeper, more serious wine than the Croix de Bois but I prefer that wine's elegance today.
