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.

Tight on the nose with bright aromas of black fruits nicely framed by sweet baking spices and layered over dried herbal and floral notes. With air this picks up some strawberry rhubarb as well. A touch soft on entry and broad in the mouth, this is chewy and a bit dense on the palate with attractive black and blue berry and plum fruits but the feel is a bit extracted and coarse. The flavors really gain focus on the back palate but the tannins, seemingly woody and dry grab the mouth as well. The finish shows beautiful fruit flavors and a very aromatic quality, all filled with blue flowers and mineral flecked fresh berry fruit. I love the flavors here, but the tannins are not my speed. 87pts
