M. Chapoutier Hermitage Vin de Paille 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

"There are limited cuvees of Chapoutier's sweet, oily, viscous vin de paille. The amber-colored 1999 Ermitage Vin de Paille reveals more new oak than expected, but it had just finished fermentation and perhaps is not as seamless as it will be in several years. It is made from grapes harvested in late October/early November, and kept on straw mats for two months prior to being crushed and vinified. This wine can last one-hundred plus years." 91/100 pts. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - April 2002)

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.
