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.

Opaque ruby. Seductively perfumed aromas of spicy red berries, cherry-cola, blood orange, lavender and incense. Sappy spice- and mineral-accented red fruit flavors show palate-coating concentration but no excess fat. Gains energy on the impressively long, mineral-dominated finish, which is firmed by silky, even tannins.
