M. Chapoutier Banyuls 2011
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.
External Reviews for M. Chapoutier Banyuls
A fresh and snappy sweetie, with red raspberry and wild plum flavors. Offers chocolate mousse notes midpalate, revealing a long and lusciously spiced finish. Drink now through 2023.
The Chapoutier 2011 Banyuls is overtly chocolaty, its black raspberry fruit taking on liqueur-like viscosity, sweetness and high-toned penetration. Expansive and grippingly persistent, while it lacks the refinement and complexity of the corresponding 2012, it’s still impressive stuff and ought to be worth following for at least 6–8 years.
