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.
87(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 1999
Good deep red. Cool, floral aromas of dark berries, licorice and spice. Bright, fresh and fruity, with decent density to buffer the acidity. A civilized, fruity style of Côte-Rôtie, not at all gamey. Shows more texture than Chapoutier's '96 Saint-Joseph Deschants ; will more complexity come with bottle aging?
