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. – Description from JelaDragoljevic

  • Wine is not the first pairing that comes to mind when you’re talking about Brazilian cuisine. Coffee, fruit drinks, cachaça, and beer are all more traditional and have longer histories with the food. Portugal has a long history of wine production, but the first settlers in the 1500s found the northern regions near the equator too hot and too wet... Read More

  • M. Chapoutier Cotes du Roussillon Villages les Vignes de Bila-Haut Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This Cotes du Roussillon Blanc has an intriguing nose of pear, a hint of citrus and other (assorted) white fruit and a nice herbal yellow colour. On the palate is a delicious infusion of semi-sweet, almost candied pear, honeydew melon, a bit of salt and spice (reminiscent of spice cake). This wine would be a hit at any summer party or any othe... Read More

  • Marius By M. Chapoutier Rouge 2013

    Snoothrank:

    In a long list of disappointing wines, this was a nice change. Well balanced, not dry. The screwcap is a welcome addition. Reasonable price.Nothing stood out as remarkable, but this was not offensive. Would buy again. Read More

  • I once spent 48 hours making a sauce from scratch. It was a classic Sauce Robert that started with a tray full of bones and vegetables. The compound sauce required demi-glace, the rich reduction of beefy goodness that takes a lot of time and effort, and I was determined to use no pre-made ingredients. At the end, gallons of liquid and pounds of ... Read More

  • M. Chapoutier St. Joseph Deschants 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This bottle was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/64390. Saint-Joseph is an AOC created in 1956 [although wine production in the area goes back to before the Romans ] for red and white wines from the area around the village of Tournon on the west bank of the Rhone opposite Tain/Hermitage on the east about 4...

  • Hello David, here's my two cents worth.  Looking at fairly available Pinots and Chards that are in your price range, are fairly reliable and pretty decent quality for the price, I'd go with a Rodney Strong Chalk Hill Chardonnay and an A to Z pinot. As an alternative, M. Chapoutier makes a very nice white (Belleruche Cotes Du Rhone Blanc) and red... Read More
