No name is more closely associated with the greatness of the Rhone valley than Chapoutier.


The history of the Chapoutier family stretches back to the early nineteenth century when current owner Michel Chapoutier's great-, great-, great-grandfather Marius purchased an estate and some vineyards in the now famous village of Tain l'Hermitage in the Northern Rhône Valley. Marius Chapoutier made history in the region when he became the first grape grower there to vinify his own fruit. Marius had tasted wines other winemakers produced using his fruit and he realized that something was lost in translation. He knew that he owned some of the best growing sites in the appellation and he believed, rightly, that the grapes grown in his vineyards could produce long-lived world-class wines. In a move unusual at the time, he decided that he should make the wine himself. Not only did the quality of the wines increase greatly, but this move provided the capital to expand the Chapoutiers’ already legendary estate. A visionary and pioneer in biodynamic winemaking, his restless energy and unconditional commitment to quality have produced tremendous success, with the most 90+ point ratings of all Rhône producers and 16 "100 point" rated wines. 

This gorgeous Rosé wine delights with its color: pale pink with bluish tints. It features aromas of red currant and raspberry with hints of citrus and the slightest touch of tropical fruit.  The palate is fresh with strawberry notes and a silky mouthfeel. Well balanced acidity creates a prolonged finish.

Wine Profile
Ratings
James Suckling, 91 Points A dry, fruity rosé with sliced-cherry, lemon and pumice character. It’s medium-to full-bodied, creamy and fruity. Lots going on.
Food Pairing Notes
We suggest pairing this wine with tangy goat cheese, prosciutto and melon, or Serrano ham. It will also go beautifully with your Thanksgiving turkey and stuffing.
Other Notes
Wine Enthusiast, 90 Points: Salty mineral notes and a pleasant tickle of spritz introduce this zesty, full-bodied blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. Salmon-pink in hue, it offers juicy sour-cherry and wild strawberry flavors balanced freshly by a cutting red-currant lift. An ideal summer aperitif, it's at peak now.
