    Cuvée presentation

    The grapes used in this single parcel cuvée come from the hillside of Le Méal, a soil of ancient fluvio-glacial alluvial deposits, with many pebbles storing the day’s heat. Marsanne is used to produce this hermitage, whose yields are limited in order to guarantee its quality. Whole grapes are pressed in the cellar and half the vinification takes place in new demi-muid barrels and the other half in vats. Ageing lasts 10 to 12 months and will be interspersed with regular tastings and stirring to suspend the lees. On the nose, aromas of white fruit, honey and fine spices predominate. On the palate, the wine is balanced and fruity and the woodiness is pleasantly subtle. It also exudes notes of brioche as well as fine length. An exceptional wine.

    Information about domainChapoutier

    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.
