Mathilde Chapoutier Selection
It is known for its wines from both the north and south of the valley, but in particular for its Hermitage wines, made from Syrah and a blend of Marsanne and Roussanne, respectively. Humility is at the heart of the M. CHAPOUTIER soul, Nature always has the final say. The winemaker observes, decides and guides nature in the most respectful way possible. Michel Chapoutier eschewed the use of traditional, large format chestnut foudres for aging, instead moving toward smaller oak casks with shorter aging periods. He also advocated keeping the wines unfiltered and unfined, and to work with only biodynamically or organically grown fruit across all of the vineyards.
Cinsault based red wines are generally low in tannin and usually used in blends for its perfume. Light red berries are the most generally associated aromas descriptors.
Provence is a wine–growing region in the remote southeastern part of France, best known for its quality rose wines and warm, mild climate. Winds characteristic of the southern climate of France (eg mistral wind blowing from the Rhone Valley) are an important factor here; they reduce the spread of vine diseases and molds in vineyards, but unfortunately increase the risk of damage to the grapes and even the vines themselves. In addition, the ideal summer conditions are somewhat offset by the storms that occur in spring and autumn.
