Intense and generous with notes of black fruit and then spicy touches. It is full and rich on the palate with a great freshness. Tannins are silky and elegant with a palate dominated by red fruits.
The vines are located on calcerous sandstone and gravelly clay terrace. Wine is mainly aged in concrete vats, with a less important part in 600 litre barrels. Bottling takes place 12 months later.
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 the team strives to reveal the very best of what the soils have to offer.
