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

  • A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC.  ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More

  • With rose season in full swing I’m a little surprised at the paucity of samples i’ve received so far this year. In order to put together a nice selection of wines for this article i went shopping last week here locally. Locally being about an hour north of Manhattan NY. After speaking with my local retailers i see one reason for the paucity. Ros... Read More

  • M. Chapoutier Cotes du Rhone Belleruche Rose 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A bit leathery, chalky and nutty on the nose with hints of melon and spice adding complexity. A touch sweet on entry but the acid quickly brings this int balance. A touch large scaled and chewy on the palate, this is easy to drink with simple earthy and slightly herbal framed flavors of raspberry and lingonberry on the palate. late arriving mine... Read More

  • Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy. I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More

  • Thanks for the tip however I'm biased against Chapoutier so I'll have to see if I can manage to break that. Just thinking that Gramercy or Betz from WA should also be included. Was thinking Jamet and Torbreck for the others, though still lots of time. Read More

  • Domaine Tournon Mathilda Shiraz M.Chapoutier 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Dark, muscular, and macerated on the nose with dense aromas of baked blackberry and blackcurrant fruit topped with an edge of green herb, citrus pith, and lots of cracked pepper. Fairly large scaled onentry, this retains good clarity in the mouth. rich with plummy and black cherry fruit that has a certain baked in a pie quality to it, the palat... Read More

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • Cotes du Rhone Belleruche. M.Chapoutier 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Blackberry on the nose with cedar wood, sweet tobacco, and juniper berry (dead on, actually - I compared it with freshly crushed juniper berries!) Some old oak/woody notes as well. On the palate there is more blackberry and herbaceous notes with tannin and softly balanced acidity. Good length. I like this wine but I'd rather see more developing ... Read More
