La cuvée Barbe Rac de Chapoutier offre tout l'aspect charnu que l'on peut attendre d'un châteauneuf-du-pape. Sa particularité : elle s'extrait de la fameuse règle des "treize cépages" de l'appellation, pour se concentrer sur le grenache et son exceptionnelle rondeur. More info

Cuvée presentation

The Barbe Rac de Chapoutier cuvée comes from a plot of very complex and varied geology, whose vines are 90 years old! As Grenache is sensitive to oxidation, vinification is done in closed concrete vats. Then, the wine is aged in vats for one year to preserve all its fruity and delicate richness. With its intense ruby, almost garnet ​​hue, its nose impresses us with its herbaceous notes of liquorice, chocolate and red berries. On the palate it is flavoursome and fleshy, warm and round. With exceptional density, it offers remarkable length.

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.
