Description

Complex and refined, a seductive Ermitage red wine

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 brought 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 has over 350 hectares of vineyards in the most prestigious appellations of the northern and southern Rhône Valley region.

The vineyard

M. Chapoutier’s Les Greffieux, named after the first owner of the plot, is a monovarietal Ermitage wine. The plot is located at the foot of the Hermitage hill and is composed of alluvial deposits with a glacial terrace. This vineyard is unique in that its subsoil is made up of deep clay, which gives the wine a fine expression and rich aromas, as well as rolled pebbles, which release heat and provide concentration and structure.

Vinification and ageing

Harvested when fully ripe, the grapes are completely destemmed before undergoing vinification in concrete vats. Long maceration in order to favour a gentle extraction of the tannins. Exclusive use of the run-off juice. The wine is aged for 14 to 18 months in 100% oak barrels (1/3 new, the rest is placed in first and second-fill barrels).

The blend

Syrah (100%).
