The wines by 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 the northern and southern Rhône Valley region.

The vineyard

M. Chapoutier's Mordorée 2020 is a Côte-Rôtie wine made from old Syrah vines. Located on the edge of the Côte Blonde, this parcel is planted on soils composed of chlorite and iron micaschists.

Vinification and ageing

Harvested when fully ripe, the grapes are completely destemmed. Vinification in concrete vats, with daily pumping over to encourage optimal extraction of colour and tannins. Exclusive use of the run-off juice. The wine is aged for 14 to 18 months in 225 litre barrels.
