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
Bright gold. Mineral-accented peach, pear and Meyer lemon aromas are deepened by notes of toasty lees and vanilla. Juicy citrus, quince and peach pit flavors give way to riper melon with air but show excellent nerve. Really clings to the palate, finishing broad, bright and impressively long. Rich and energetic.
