Cuvée presentation

For a long time occupied by orchards and wastelands, the Crozes-Hermitage appellation was founded in 1952, somewhat in the shadow of its "big sister" Hermitage and today its wines have acquired their own identity at an unbeatable value for money. Here, Chapoutier brings together its oldest Syrah vines in Crozes-Hermitage (60 years old on average). The wine is vinified in small closed concrete vats and ageing takes place in oak barrels for between 14 and 18 months. Les Varonniers exudes aromas of very ripe red fruits and liquorice. The palate unfurls a certain power and fine density, candied and slightly vanilla notes thanks to the ageing. The length is impressive.

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.
