Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2009 vintage, The Wine Gang said: This is a new Michel Chapouter wine for us and we're glad to have made its acquaintance. Classically perfumed with fresh, sweet raspberry mingling with woodsmoke and spice; medium-bodied but multi-layered, supple, fine-textured and elegantly framed by its oak.
