Les Arenes is a beautiful example of the Cornas appellation. It has intense ripe fruit flavours on the nose and in the palate flavours of blackberries, spices, morello cherry.

Part of the vineyard is located on decomposing granite, known locally as "gore" the other is on alluvial clay-limestone soil. This kind of soil produces powerful, meaty wines with good tannin. This type of granite also gives the wine power and nice taut acidity.

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.
