Description

The aromatic richness and elegance of an Hermitage white wine

The estate

Established since 1808 in Tain-L'Hermitage, M. Chapoutier today embodies the elite of Rhône Valley wines.

Winemaker and wine merchant, Michel Chapoutier has successfully brought this family-owned business to the very top. The wines of Maison Chapoutier are renowned by the finest connoisseurs from all around the world for their refinement and high quality. A man of many talents, Michel Chapoutier holds the world record for 100/100 scores awarded by the American critic, Robert Parker. Mathilde, Michel Chapoutier's daughter, has taken over the running of this iconic house, which has over 350 hectares of vineyards in the most prestigious appellations of northern and southern Rhône Valley.

The vineyard

This Chante-Alouette 2019 is an Hermitage wine made from three different vineyards: "Le Méal," characterised by fluvio-glacial alluvial soil with numerous pebbles, "Les Murets," with clay-gravel soil and "Chante-Alouette," which gave its name to the wine. Its high altitude terroir, whose soils mix loess with very finely decomposed granite, gives the wine freshness, salinity and acidity.

Winemaking and ageing

Harvests done by hand. Long pressing and light settling before fermentation. Stirring on the lees was done for the first 2 to 3 months to give the wine texture. The wine was aged partly in stainless steel vats (30 to 40%), partly in demi-muids (60 to 70%) with 10% new wood and 90% wood from one to three wines.

Blend

Marsanne (100%)

Characteristics and tasting tips for Chante-Alouette 2019 from M. Chapoutier

Tasting

Colour
The wine is of a shining gold with green highlights.

Nose
The nose is complex, giving off delicious notes of quince, walnuts and honey, which mingle with subtle notes of ginger, acacia and lime blossom.

Palate
Bold from the attack, the palate, elegant and unaggressive, unveils a finish with almond scents, graced with a lovely length.

Food and wine pairing

This Rhône Valley wine pairs perfectly with foie gras, lobster, fish and poultry in sauce, as well as cheeses (goat’s cheese, blue cheese). It is also perfect to accompany spicy dishes (curry).
