Established in 1808, M. Chapoutier is one of the oldest producers in the Rhône Valley. But its current world-wide fame - and the quality of its wines today - can be credited to the arrival of Michel Chapoutier in 1990. His willingness to change established practices - plus his determination to reflect the full potential of individual terroirs - has cemented his reputation as one of the greatest winemakers in the world.
Chapoutier is famed for pioneering organic and biodynamic viticulture. Since 1991, Michel and his team have worked tirelessly to convert their vineyards to biodynamic methods, and this practise has now been copied by a many of the world’s leading wine estates:
“What he [Michel Chapoutier] has accomplished over the last two decades or more is one of the great wine stories of the modern era.” – Robert M. Parker Jr.
