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.

Bright ruby. Ripe cherry, dark berries, potpourri and woodsmoke on the highly perfumed nose. Deep, precise blackberry and candied violet flavors are given lift and focus by juicy acidity and a touch of peppery spices. Closes broad, sappy and long, with resonating floral and spice notes and excellent persistence. I find this energetic wine surprisingly approachable now.
