History of Chapoutier family dates back to early 19th century when current owner Michel Chapoutier’s great-, great-, great-grandfather Marius purchased estate & famous l’Hermitage vineyards. Deep Purple (with a little smoke on the water), 100% Grenache with aromas of dark fruit and complex exotic spice. Plum, berry & current flavors with nutty tobacco develops into sweet licorice. Tannins a bit grippy but will soften, lingering, balance ending with fruit and spice. Nice!

Figured I’d go back to back here with Bila Haut and deal with the consequences tomorrow. I have nothing better to do. My wife is sick, my son is in bed, my dog is going to town on his Kong. So wine time for me. In a blind I’d like to say you could pinpoint similar producer but these are two totally different wines. This is clay-filled with blackberry and a hint of mocha. Dry, dusty, and mouth puckering finish. For a side by side it really comes down to personal preference not quality. — 18 days ago
Drinks like a Pinot Noir. The bourbon smooths it out. Yum. — 8 days ago
