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.

(100% grenache blanc): Pale gold. Smoky pear and peach pit aromas are lifted by a zesty lemon pith nuance. Fleshy and smooth in texture, with good heft to its broad orchard and pit fruit flavors. Shows good clarity on the finish, which features a juicy pear note.
