Chapoutier Hermitage Blanc Chante Allouette 2004
The vineyard is located at the top of the Hermitage slope and extends down to the bottom, on the Meal side. It is exposed full south. The locality of Chante-Alouette is set on soil made of loess, and covered with chalky clay. Hand harvesting at maturity. After pressing, the must is cold-racked for 24 hours. One third of the wine is vinified in new casks, the rest in vats. The temperature of fermentation is regulated to develop the aromatic complexity of the wines. Before bottling, the maturing in casks is checked by frequent tastings. Organoleptic tests are carried out to determine how long it should remain in casks (from 10 to 12 months).
The name CHAPOUTIER is present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor CHAPOUTIER was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of wine-grower of an estate to that of a viticulturist, a wine producer and a businessman. The pioneering spirit was already present in the family.
