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% old-vines marsanne that is grown on heavily granitic slopes in Tournon): Bright gold. An intensely perfumed nose displays scents of spiced pear, licorice, buttered toast and jasmine. Rich but vibrant on the palate, offering powerful lemon curd, pear and mineral flavors and a sweet vanilla undertone. Gains weight with air, becoming deeper and richer and finishing with excellent energy and focus. This impressive wine cedes little ground to the best white Hermitages.
