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

  • 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

  • M Chapoutier Tournon Shiraz Mathilda 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Pleasant enough Australian shiraz by French winemaker Michel Chapoutier. There's plenty of black and red cherry, the slightest touch of menthol, medium acidity but a bit of a short finish. Read More

  • Cotes du Rhone. It’s a surprisingly well known wine in a world where the wines people are generally more comfortable with come with varietal designations as opposed to regional ones. Sure there are Chianti, and Bordeaux, but how many other regional appellations are most people familiar with? And is there any other that is exclusively focused on ... Read More

  • M. Chapoutier Grenache Blend Côtes du Roussillon Villages Latour Domaine de Bila-Haut Vignes Bila 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This is a very nice Rhone blend of syrah, grenache and carignan. Very well balanced with the blackberry and dark red cherry from the syrah coming to the forefront. This has soft, fine tannins, decent acidity, a touch of earthiness and a medium length finish. Excellent QPR! Read More
