  • Made exclusively from Grenache, Croix de Bois de Chapoutier comes from the typical Châteauneuf soils, large rounded pebbles and sandy red clay. The harvest is vinified in closed concrete vats and only free run wine is used. It is aged in vats for 14 to 16 months. With its intense red hue, the nose is fruity and elegant, with notes of red fruit, strawberry jam, floral accents and a touch of spice. Creamy and flavoursome on the palate, it has distinguished tannins of rare finesse and showcases the breath-taking length of great Châteauneuf wines. This wine with good ageing potential (15 years or more) can be enjoyed after 3 to 5 years thanks to its fruity freshness.

    Maison Chapoutier is without doubt one of the most prestigious names in the Rhône producing some of the finest Hermitage. The domain converted its 350 hectares of vines to biodynamic viticulture, making it the largest vineyard to adopt this method of cultivation. It has held certification since 1999. The Chapoutier savoir faire has spread to other vineyards in other winemaking regions: Provence, Beaujolais, Roussillon, Champagne, Alsace, Portugal but also Australia. In 1879, Polydor Chapoutier bought a few hectares of vines and started a negociant business. Seven generations have succeeded him, and Michel Chapoutier is currently at the helm. Since 1996, all the labels have been transcribed in braille. Chapoutier is often one of the last to harvest to ensure that grapes reach optimal maturity.
