The Winery

M. Chapoutier

"Michel Chapoutier's enthusiasm and commitment to exceptional, naturally made wines is a winemaking triumph, as well as a clear victory for all who care about the quality of wine."
-Robert Parker

While the estate was born in the early 19th century, the real story of the wines we see today began when Marius Chapoutier took the winemaking into his own hands; dissatisfied with what his neighbors were producing and with the faith he could do better.

In 1990, Michel Chapoutier quickly established his family’s estate, taking it to the top at the young age of 26. Old world coupled with biodynamics and a legacy of experience, gifts us with remarkable, unflitered wines we can enjoy now or lay down for at least a decade. Just in 2003, 88 of the wines were awarded 90+ points by highly acclaimed critics. Vintages to look out for: 1990, 1994, 1995, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001.

Tasting Notes

WE95
Wonderfully aromatic and complex, blending floral notes with mineral scents, bold cassis fruit and cracked pepper. This is full-bodied and muscular on the palate, the only one of Chapoutier’s 2004s that really demands cellaring.…
WS94
Shows a mix of dark bramble notes and a zesty wild berry profile, with dark cocoa, tar and graphite in the background. The muscular edge on the finish is atypical for the vintage. Best from 2008…
