Description

The richness and minerality of a white wine from Ermitage

The estate

Established since 1808 in Tain-L'Hermitage, M. Chapoutier is an elite reference among fine Rhône Valley wines today.

Winemaker and wine merchant, Michel Chapoutier has successfully elevated this family-owned business to the very top. The wines by Maison Chapoutier are renowned by the finest connoisseurs from all around the world for their refinement and high quality. A man of many talents, Michel Chapoutier holds the world record for 100/100 scores awarded by the American critic, Robert Parker. Mathilde, Michel Chapoutier's daughter, has taken over the running of this iconic house, which comprises over 350 hectares of vineyards in the most prestigious appellations of the northern and southern Rhône Valley region.

The vineyard

M. Chapoutier's Méal 2020 white wine is an Ermitage wine made from grapes from the eponymous hillside. The vines are over 50 years old on average and are planted on fluvio-glacial alluvial soil with many pebbles. These old vines are known for their low yields, which produce high-quality wines.

Vinification and ageing

Manual harvesting at full maturity. Pressing followed by cold settling of the must for approximately 24 to 48 hours. Around 50% of the wine is made in new demi-muids and 50% in vats. This wine is aged for 10 to 12 months, with regular stirring of the lees.

The blend

Marsanne (100%).
