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.
About the cuvée
This Cornas comes from a granite terroir and was vinified traditionally with a 10-day fermentation in concrete vats and a 4-5 week maceration to extract maximum flavour and texture. It was then matured in barrels for 16-18 months. Its particularly deep colour brings an aromatic bouquet marked by notes of candied dark fruit, herbs, cedar, and minerals. Ample, voluminous and velvety, it is nonetheless fresh with a spicy finish.
