The Maison M. CHAPOUTIER, recently nominated the Most Admired French Wine Brand in the World*, has just launched its Single Vineyard Selections (Sélections Parcellaires) En Primeur Campaign for the 2015 vintage.
For these most exceptional of wines which have, over a quarter of a century, amassed the greatest number of 100/100 Parker points in the world, the En Primeur Campaign is a major event which attracts buyers from all around the globe.
Michel Chapoutier says: “Considering the rare and exceptional quality of this 2015 vintage, this En Primeur Campaign could very well be the opportunity of a lifetime for those who are astute enough to move early.”
Australia, the Roussillon, the Rhone Valley… the 2015 Single Vineyard Selections from the Maison M. CHAPOUTIER represent first and foremost some of the greatest appellations of the Rhône Valley: Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Cornas, Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Saint-Joseph. In extremely limited quantities emanating from old vines cultivated using biodynamic methods, prestigious names from the Hermitage Hill, including Le Méal, Le Pavillon, De L’Orée and L’Ermite are now available as Primeurs. Other regions also have their Single Vineyard Selections, notably V.I.T. (Visitare Interiore Terrae) in Côtes-du-Roussillon Villages Latour de France and L-Block from Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier in Australia.
These 2015 Primeurs will be delivered as from 2018.
Fac & Spera, “Do & Hope”, is the Maison M. CHAPOUTIER’s motto and this is the philosophy behind the Single Vineyard Selections that are the result of the selection from one particular plot. Here, the winemaker lets the terroir express itself unfettered to achieve the conjunction of soil, climate and traditional know-how with exactitude. It is a snapshot of a grape, in a certain year, in a given terroir. These are exceptional wines, rare wines, created from our oldest vines. Here bio-dynamics comes fully into play.
* In 2016, the Maison M. CHAPOUTIER was elected the Most Admired French Wine Brand in the World for the 3rd time in 4 years (2013, 2014 and 2016) (Drinks International – March 2016)
