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.

Ruby-red. Precise aromas of currant, gunflint, smoke and licorice. Juicy and penetrating; quite vibrant for 2000. This offers excellent density and volume. Very firm tannins avoid dryness. The finish is broad, smoky and persistent.
