    Cuvée presentation

    At this Côte-Rôtie vineyard, Maison Chapoutier offers a red wine made only from Syrah grown on mica schist and granite soils. After destemming, the grapes are put into vats and pump-over is done on a daily basis which ensures good extraction of substance and colour. Barrel fermentation lasts nearly a month and the wine is fully aged in oak barrels for 14 to 16 months. When drinking, we discover a deep wine which is dominated by notes of black fruit, cedar and fern. With its direct attack and velvety tannins, this Côte-Rôtie offers a complex finish.

    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.
