    Cuvée presentation

    The name of this cuvée is far from insignificant : it pays homage to Maurice Monier de la Sizeranne, the owner of the plot of Hermitage la Sizeranne, also the inventor of the first version of abbreviated Braille. The hermitage Monier de La Sizeranne is the great classic of Maison Chapoutier, suitable for ageing. Elegant and refined when young, this Syrah gradually asserts itself and its smoky and spicy notes gradually become fruitier. It gains flavour and confidence to rank amongst the great wines. This wine must be left for a good ten years. Those who prefer the "Pinot" side of Syrah and its subtle delicacy when it has been bottled for some time, will wait even longer. The perfect balance between a powerful and refined wine.

    Information about domain Chapoutier

    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.
