Cuvée presentation

Mordorée de Chapoutier is a wine from a shaly soil (acidic or limestone); the plot that produces this exceptional cuvée is located at the edge of the Côte Blonde and includes old Syrah vines which are about 60 years old. It is harvested in concrete vats and only free run wine is used. It is then aged in 225 litre casks for 14 to 18 months, without fining or filtration. With its deep red hue, the aromas of spices and liquorice dominate, with notes of candied blackcurrant and subtle notes of tapenade. On the palate, it is flavoursome and elegant with good balance and silky tannins. Its ageing potential is very good, over 20 years old.

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.
