Maison M. Chapoutier is one of the most recognizable – and sizeable – producers in the Rhône Valley. It is known for its wines from both the north and south of the valley, but in particular for its red and white Hermitage wines, made from Syrah and a blend of Marsanne and Roussanne, respectively. Michel Chapoutier is one of the most highly regarded winemakers in France. Since taking over his family firm in 1990 at age 26, Michel has transformed the winery into the leading Rhône Valley producer. He combines the modern and the traditional: crusading for biodynamic winemaking, while expanding operations around the globe and experimenting with innovative winemaking techniques.
La Ciboise (lah see-BWAHZ) is the name of Michel Chapoutier’s grandfather’s home. Located right in the center of the town of Tain l’Hermitage, La Ciboise was the energetic center of Chapoutier family life where children and relatives used to meet regularly. Similarly, these new wines from the M. Chapoutier portfolio are intended to be enjoyed with friends and family to celebrate everyday life. Luberon is located in the southeastern area of the Rhône Valley, it has a continental climate due to its proximity to the Alps. One of Europe’s oldest wine regions dating back to 750 BC, it received official AOC status in 1988 and is known for producing charming value wines.
