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.

Bright gold. An exotically perfumed, smoky bouquet evokes ripe orchard fruits, candied orange and marzipan. Lush and creamy in texture, with palate-coating pear, peach and vanilla flavors enlivened by a sneaky mineral quality. Shows excellent focus on the broad, clinging finish. This wine could handle the richest foods with ease.
