Grape variety

Syrah.

Soil

Part of the vineyard is located on decomposing granite, known locally as “gore”, the other is on alluvial clay-limestone soil. This kind of soil produces powerful, meaty wines with good tannin. This type of granite also gives the wine power and a nice taut acidity.

Harvest

The grapes are entirely hand-harvested.

Winemaking

Vinification is carried out in the traditional way, the harvest is destemmed.

Fermentation lasts about 10 days and is followed by an around three-week maceration.

Maturing

After vinification, the ageing process starts and lasts 14-16 months. 80% of the wine goes into oak barrels (100% French). The remaining 20% are aged in concrete tanks, which preserves the fruit and minerality expressed on these granitic soils.

Maison M. Chapoutier, is a winery and negociant business situated in the Rhone region in France. Chapoutier produces wine from appellations across the Rhone region, but it is typically their top Hermitage wines, both red and white wines, that receive the most attention and accolades. Chapoutier's wine labels are distinctive because of their inclusion of Braille writing on all labels since 1996. Chapoutier was the first wine producer to introduce braille on its labels, starting in 1994 with the Monier de la Sizeranne Hermitage wine. By 1996 this was expanded to include all wines bottled and sold by Chapoutier winery.
