Description

A full and firm Crozes-Ermitage red 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 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 northern and southern Rhône Valley.

The vineyard

Les Varonniers 1998 by M. Chapoutier is a Crozes-Ermitage wine made from old Syrah vines planted on south-west facing granite slopes at the end of the Hermitage hill.

Winemaking and ageing

Vinification in small concrete tanks. Vatting time of almost one month. Exclusive use of the run-off wine. Ageing for 14 to 18 months exclusively in oak barrels, a certain percentage of which were new.

Blend
