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.
92-94 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2013
Vivid yellow-gold. Displays a highly complex bouquet of candied citrus and orchard fruits, flowers and minerals, with anise and truffle accents building in the glass. Taut and linear on the palate, offering sappy, deeply pitched lemon curd and poached pear flavors that gain flesh with air. Focused and energetic on the finish, with powerful mineral cut and a suave floral nuance.
