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 purple. Ripe, spice-tinged black and blue fruits on the nose and palate. Picks up smokiness and sweetness with air and shows a suave blend of richness and vivacity. Tannins make a late appearance and melt quickly into the fruit. Finishes with excellent clarity and thrust, leaving allspice and candied blueberry notes behind.
