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 & Viticulture

The soils are composed of schist and altered granites which come through in the wine as aromatic power and great complexity. This type of soil also gives the wine freshness and minerality. The slopes of this appellation are as steep as those of the Côte-Rôtie appellation. The south and southeast-facing parcels, are mainly located in the communes of Condrieu, Chavannay and Limony.

After pressing, the must is cold-settling for 48 hours. Alcoholic fermentation occurs at temperatures between 16 and 18°C with a part ageing in oak casks. Short ageing on the lees of around 8 months to preserve freshness and the varietal character of the grape. Ageing is carried out in wood to give the wine complexity and magnitude. 15% of the wine is aged in new barrels to preserve the freshness and minerality of the fruit. The remaining 85% are aged in demi-muids previously used for one to two vintages, which gives the wine consistency, power and aromatic complexity.
