After a light cold racking, fermentation in casks at temperature between 20 and 22 °C. After a long period of fermentation the wine is matured on lees (100 % new oak)at least for 10 months on. Selection of our oldest Marsanne vines. Situated at the top of the hermitage hill, around the chapel, in a place named the Ermite very poor granitic soils (gore). Hand harvesting.
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.
