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 | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2014
Full ruby. Deeper and more brooding than the Croix de Bois. Displays intense dark berry, cherry, anise and black cardamom scents, along with notes of dried flowers and smoky minerals. Powerful but lively as well, offering gently sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of orange pith. Finishes smooth, broad and long, with building spiciness and excellent clarity.
