A powerful nose, alternating between strawberry jam and spicy/peppery notes. Similarly the palate is floral then spicy, the wine has superb tannic structure and lovely long-lingering flavours.
The soils of this A.O.C. covers sandy molasses, clay or old alluvial deposits with shingles. The grapes are destemmed and vinified in concrete tanks. Daily pumping over is carried out during the alcoholic fermentation and the maturing takes place in concrete tanks over 8 months.
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.
