Chapoutier Les Meysonniers Crozes-Hermitage
Chapoutier Les Meysonniers Crozes-Hermitage is very intense and purple with red fruits, blackcurrants, rasperries and violet aromas ample round palate.
“Les Meysonniers” comes from vines which are more than 25 years old. Vinified traditionally, with two daily treadings, a quarter of the wine is matured in oak casks for 12 months before bottling.
The Chapoutier family have been making wine in the Rhône Valley since 1808, but it is since 1990 when Michel Chapoutier took over that the wines really began to speak of their origin.
The appellation was initially applied only to the village and surrounding area of Crozes-Hermitage, on account of the notoriety won by several parcels of vineyards selected as Hermitage A.O.C. (Controlled Appellation). It is now a well known wine. http://www.chapoutier.com/crozes-hermitage,A-O-C-wine,crh.html
Michel Chapoutier believes in allowing each parcel of land to make the best wine it can naturally and so much of his estate is farmed bio-dynamically
Two words combine and create a core value. “Bio”, meaning life, and “Dynamics”, in action. The Maison M.Chapoutier has chosen to use organic and bio-dynamic farming for most of its vines (certified since 1999).
This is born out of a conviction: that one should let the land live and speak. Above all else, it is about enabling the terroir (soil, climate, know-how) to express itself fully.
In fact, the expression, transmutation of mineral into vegetal, can only exist with a living terroir, able to transmit life.”
