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 wine is known for its distinctive bright golden hue. The aroma is intense and expressive on the nose, with notes of apricot, fennel, and floral scents. The wine presents as complex and very elegant on the palate with a roundness that is a perfect match for its crisp finish. Subtle notes of herb and fennel punctuate the aftertaste.

Wine Profile
Ratings
James Suckling Very fragrant and perfumed with a light, grilled-lemon note, across ripe melon and peaches. The palate has a superb build of fresh, ripe and rich white peaches and delivers a very attractive, easygoing finish.
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 Whispers of smoke and hazelnut skins accent fresh, cutting white peach and pear in this full-bodied yet zesty dry white. Predominantly Grenache Blanc, it’s a sumptuous sip given lift and edge by smaller proportions of Clairette and Bourboulenc. The finish is intensely mineral, lingering on a delicious salty tang.
