With roots dating back to 1808, M. CHAPOUTIER is one of the oldest companies in the Rhône Valley. Yet, its world renown and the quality of wine can truly be accredited to the arrival of Michel Chapoutier in 1990. His willingness to change the set way, thirst for knowledge and open-mindedness, together with his drive to seek, discover and reflect the full potential of our terroirs, letting the soils express their true character, has put our wines firmly on the wine world map.
Chapoutier Collection Bio Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2019
Beautifully ruby red in appearacne with lots of red fruit notes. On the palate there is a refreshing acidity to the wine with beautifully silky tannins. Best paired with game, especially rabbit.
The Grenache and Syrah grapes are de-stemmed and go into concrete tanks. The temperature of fermentation is controlled to preserve varietal aromas. Short gentle pumping over at regular intervals throughout the day in order to extract aromas, colouring matter and tannins. Post fermentation maceration lasts around 3 weeks. The decision on when to remove the wine from the vat is based on tasting the wine. The wine is aged in concrete tanks and bottled at the end of the spring that follows the harvest.
