Food Pairings for Crozes-Hermitage Rouge M. Chapoutier la Petite Ruche Syrah
The Chapoutier family have been making wine in the Rhône Valley since 1808, but it is since 1990 when Michel Chapoutier came to the helm that the wines really began to speak of their origin. Michel Chapoutier’s viticultural vision is highly impressive. His dedication to understanding each parcel of land and allowing it to make the best natural wine it can is breathtaking. He has worked tirelessly to improve every practice in his company investing in his staff as well as in the winery and vineyard - much of his estate is now farmed biodynamically. Indeed he has also created dynamic projects outside of the Rhône, examples of which can be found here from Roussillon, where he sought old vines and Australia, where his particular interest was the soil. This entire range is the fruit of extensive research and Michel Chapoutier’s labour. 'La Petite Ruche Blanc' has a pale yellow colour with a greenish tint, limpid and brilliant. On the nose it has a sour apple aroma with strong flowery bouquet. The first attack is supple and very fresh.
