Michel Chapoutier

The House of Chapoutier has a long and proud family tradition dating back to 1808. Today, seven generations later, Michel Chapoutier carries on this tradition using biodynamic winemaking techniques for his most famous wines (one of the first in France to do so) and to make outstanding wines at all levels.

Michel Chapoutier’s often daring combination of old and new techniques and his creative solutions to old problems has transformed winemaking in the region and brought many accolades, including much praise from Robert Parker. He has the biggest holding in Hermitage and is also the largest biodynamic producer in France. Chapoutier’s commitment to biodynamism is unflinching.

The terroir is a living organism and must be respected and reflected through flavours unique to each parcel and vintage rather than strive for a common style. Chapoutier is also recognized by the use of Braille on the labels. Maurice Monier de la Sizeranne owner of the first plot of the Hermitage la Sizeranne - one of Chapoutier’s signature wines - is also the inventor of the first version of abbreviated Braille.
