A white wine from Ermitage with seductive complexity and finesse

The estate

Established since 1808 in Tain-L'Hermitage, M. Chapoutier is an elite reference among fine Rhone Valley wines today.

Winemaker and wine merchant, Michel Chapoutier has successfully brought this family-owned business to the very top. The wines by Maison Chapoutier are renowned by the finest connoisseurs from all around the world for their refinement and high quality. A man of many talents, Michel Chapoutier holds the world record for 100/100 scores awarded by the American critic, Robert Parker. Mathilde, Michel Chapoutier's daughter, has taken over the running of this iconic house, which has over 350 hectares of vineyards in the most prestigious appellations of the northern and southern Rhone Valley region.

The vineyard

M. Chapoutier's Le Meal 2021 white wine is an Ermitage wine that stems from grapes grown on the eponymous hillside. The vines are over 50 years old on average and are planted on fluvio-glacial alluvial soil with many pebbles. These old vines are known for their low yields, which produce high quality wines.

The vintage

2021 is a vintage during which the contrasting weather conditions between the northern and southern parts of the Rhone Valley revealed the nuances and richness of each of these fine terroirs. This vintage exudes an alluring finesse and its aromatic palette harmoniously blends complexity and elegance.

The blend

Marsanne (100%).
