Wine is born from the earth, the sky... and the love one carries for it
"In nearly 20 years of wine writing, I have never witnessed a more significant jump in quality and change in winemaking philosophy that what has occurred in the Chapoutier cellars... Few wine firms in the world have produced more extraordinary wines... Michel Chapoutier has become one of this planet's bright shining lights." WINES OF THE RHONE VALLEY, Robert M. Parker, Jr.
Being the Domaine with the most 99 to 100 points awarded by Parker, Maison Chapoutier is not only the biggest landowner in Hermitage, but the largest and foremost biodynamic producer in France.
His emphasis is placed on the natural development of the terroir (soil signature), minerality, and characteristics of each unique piece of land and thus the wines. It is Michel's philosophy that his wines are meant to be enjoyed with fine matching food; their 'marriage' in terms of the enhancement of flavors, textures, and length from Chapoutier's impressive portfolio of wines are nothing short of sensational.
