Hermitage Cuvee de l'Oree Chapoutier 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes producing « De l?Orée » come from the parcel « Les Murets ». Its soil is made of river alluvions from the glacial era. Hand harvesting at advanced maturity. After pressing, the must is cold-racked for 24 hours. About 50 % is vinified in new casks, the rest in vats. 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 and the bottling date.

M. Chapoutier:
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.
