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.

Opaque purple. Cherry compote, cassis and violet on the highly perfumed nose. Deeply pitched dark fruit flavors show impressive intensity and focus, with notes of allspice and star anise adding complexity. Smoothly combines power with vivacity. A bright mineral note adds cut to the very long, sappy, refreshingly bitter finish.
