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.

Inky ruby. Intense, spice-accented aromas of red and dark berry liqueur and potpourri, with a smoky overtone. Juicy, palate-staining black raspberry and blueberry flavors expand with air and pick up notes of allspice and candied licorice. Clings impressively on the finish, which leaves notes of violet pastille and cracked pepper behind.
