2013 Crozes-Hermitage Les Varonniers, M. Chapoutier

One of the best vineyards in Crozes, it is actually only a few hundred metres from Le Pavillon in Hermitage. An expressive nose of spring flowers and iron filings, the palate is packed with damsons and pepper. A beautifully sculpted wine for relatively early drinking.

2013 Crozes-Hermitage Les Varonniers, M. Chapoutier
M. Chapoutier

The name Chapoutier has long been associated with the northern Rhône thanks to the calibre of their plots around the region, but it was only once Michel Chapoutier took control of the family business in 1988 that quality accelerated it to become the world-class concern it is today. Michel Chapoutier is undoubtedly one of the greatest winemakers of our time, and has successfully extended his business to include vineyards in the Roussillon, Alsace and Australia. But his Northern Rhône Syrahs and Marsannes of exquisite quality remain the main attraction.
