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 Syrah Crozes-Hermitage Petite Ruche
Alluring, with perfumy black tea, sandalwood and warm fig sauce aromas, followed by black cherry, anise and white pepper notes. There's a nice sanguine edge on the sleek, medium-weight finish. Drink now through 2017.
