Marks and reviews
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 Rhône Valley region.
This plot selection Ermitage Le Méal by M. Chapoutier comprises grapes that stem from the eponymous hill. The soil of these high terraces is made up of rolled pebbles and clay. These old vines are over 50 years old on average and are renowned for their low yields, which produce high-quality wines.
Vinification and ageing
Hand-picked at optimum maturity. The grapes are 100% destemmed and vinified in a small concrete vat. Maceration at high temperature in order to favour optimal extraction and obtain supple and silky tannins, the guarantee of an important ageing potential. This plot selection is made exclusively from free-run wine. The wine is aged for 14 to 18 months in new or second-fill barrels. Clarification is done naturally.
M. Chapoutier's Méal 2004 is a 100% Syrah.
This wine showcases a beautiful garnet red colour with tinted highlights.
A refined expression of the evolution of the fine Syrah grapes from the Rhône Valley, this cuvée seduces with its fruity and smoky aromas on the nose.
The palate harmoniously blends power with a velvety feel.
M. Chapoutier's Méal 2004 can be kept in the cellar for several decades in order to express its full aromatic range.
