Humility and desire: these words best describe the Domain M. Chapoutier.
This company cultivates his vines in the greatest respect for natural balance and terroir since 1808. A coat of arms "Fac et spera" (Do and hope) became the family motto. Two verbs to describe all the patience, all the audacity you need to have in this wine business. Patience vis-à-vis the presiding nature. Audacity of the winemaker who observes, selects and supports. The wine is an expression of this alchemy.
The soil consists of gravel deposited in the Quaternary by the Rhone locally called Gress. The vines develop a very deep rooting up to the clay layers.
Aging: 6 months in concrete vats.
