M Chapoutier

The origins of Chapoutier go back to the early 19th century but it was only when Max retired in 1977 and his sons Marc and Michel took over that the company really became focussed on quality.

Michel, now in sole charge, has been the driving force behind this and, deciding that quality started in the vineyard, has moved the entire estate over to bio-dynamic cultivation alongside other innovations such as only using natural yeasts and introducing super cuvées of their top wines. They own an important part of the Hermitage hill alongside vineyards in St-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Côte Rôtie, Châteauneuf-du-Pape and others in the south of France and now Australia. Fruit is also bought in. Chapoutier have been vital in taking Rhône wines to a new audience and their growth continues with new cellars on the outskirts of Tain l'Hermitage.
