The opinion of the sommelier

« When Michel Chapoutier, a winemaker considered as a god in the Rhône Valley, and Yannick Alléno, a famous chef (who gets 3 stars in the Michelin guide) met, they immediately decided to produce a cuvee together. They produced this cuvee in order to put it on the wine list of Yannick Alléno’s restaurants. It is a gastronomic wine, that will probably surprise you with its lard mouth, slightly smoked. I would like to thank Michel Chapoutier again for letting us get the remaining stock of this cuvee. »
 

Terroir

shallow soil, composed of granite. It is a typical terroir of the Saint-Joseph designation. Michel Chapoutier uses head-pruned vines, that are thirty years old. Vinegrapes benefit from a lot of wind, that enables grapes to be well-ventilated and that avoids the development of mould.

lecepageGrape variety

Shiraz is one of the most cultivated grape varieties in the world. It produces wines with a dark robe, and powerful and spicy aromas, such as violet, black pepper or liquorice. A wine produced with Shiraz is perfect to drink after several years in your cellar.

lemillesime Vintage

There were a lot of rain in the Rhône Valley in 2011, as well as high temperatures. Temperatures were particularly high during summer in the Tain-l’Hermitage municipality, and it also rained a lot. You will probably recognize the aromas and flavors of the sun in this cuvee as well as the freshness coming from the rain.

lerecoltant A wine, a family

Michel Chapoutier is a lover of grapevines! Nowadays, Michel is very famous in the Rhône Valley and his wines are very successful, especially in the international market. This success can be explained by Michel’s motto: “Don’t follow or copy, but initiate, create and pave the way”..
