M. Chapoutier

The story began with Michel Chapoutier, a unique man with a thirst for knowledge, definitely one of a kind. Michel is openminded and always willing to learn. He seeks to discover and reflect the full potential of his terroirs and let the soils express their true character. That which gives the wines their signature style. This now forms the basis of the M. CHAPOUTIER ethos and our team strives to reveal the very best of what the soils have to offer.

Vineyard & Vinification

The vineyard in one of the highest in France. It culminates at 700 meters altitude and has clay-limestone soil. Direct pressing of whole bunches followed by clarification. The must is cooled to a very low temperature in refrigerated stainless-steel vats. A first fermentation takes place in vat thanks to the action of the native yeasts. The half-fermented juice (4-5 ° alcohol) is bottled without any addition of “tirage” liqueur. Left in a refrigerated cellar for 6 to 12 months, the residual sugar and the yeasts naturally contained in the grapes will bring on the second fermentation. Under the effect of the pressure, this fermentation in bottle stops naturally before all the grape's sugars have run out. For the disgorging (after the end of the second fermentation), the bottles are decanted into vats to prevent any deposit (yeast) through cold filtration. The bottles are then filled a second time without any addition of “expedition liqueur”.
