The Chapoutier family has been making wine in the Rh̫one Valley since 1808 (but it was in 1879 that Polydor Chapoutier bought his first vineyards and started the actual business). Michel Chapoutier took over the family business in 1990 from his Grandfather. He has a preference for single-variety wines, also from those appellations where blends are common. Thus, Chapoutier's Côte-Rôties are Syrah only (with no Viognier), the white Hermitages are all Marsanne only (with no Roussanne) and several of the Châteauneuf-du-Papes are Grenache noir only. The Estate nurtures its vineyards with the greatest respect for natural balance and terroir and their wine is produced in accordance with a strict biodynamic policy. Chapoutier was also the first wine producer to introduce braille on its labels.
