Courant mars, la maison Chapoutier mettra en vente son millésime 2013 à travers quelques rares allocations. Depuis plusieurs années, les sélections parcellaires du maitre de l’Hermitage collectionnent avec récurrence les meilleures notes de Robert Parker. Les cuvées exceptionnelles, telles que le Pavillon, L’Ermite, le Méal et De L’Orée, en rouge, comme en blanc s’arracheront. Les prix de sortie Primeurs demeurent généralement assez attractifs, permettant ainsi un investissement à rendement élevé. A titre d’exemple : le Pavillon 2011, côté 100 Parker, s’est acheté à 158 € HT en mars 2012 pour s’échanger à 212 € HT vingt-quatre mois plus tard.
One of the France’s great estates is Chapoutier. Deeply committed to biodynamics where a comprehensive range of wines translate the diverse terroir of the Rhone Valley (and the wonderful Braille label), this is must-visit booth. Michel Chapoutier is representing the family, and Hermitage Chante Alouette 2011 is a wine I deeply admire.
The 2012 Ermitage White L'Ermite is a stunner, with laserlike focus, a pronounced chamomile and quinine spine that keeps the core of white peach, blanched almond, honeysuckle, Meyer lemon zest and chartreuse notes tightly coiled for now. The finish is ridiculously long.
Deeply philosophical, he is a man who points out that while modern biodynamic farming was spawned by Rudolf Steiner in 1920s Austria; “You only have to look towards Taoist philosophies of the last few millennia to see the exact same thing.” He’s a man unafraid to unleash a little cheeky bravado, sharing that, “Every winemaker will tell you that their region is the best in the world, but what makes the Rhône Valley so unique is that in the Rhône, it’s actually true.”
Michel Chapoutier is rock star, but it’s not what you think. He’s no Mick Jagger or Bon Jovi. It’s his love of soil that rocks the wine world. His family has been making wine in the Rhone Valley since 1808, but after what had to be some very spirited discussions about wine style, the young Chapoutier bought the family business from his grandfather in 1989 and took the company in a new but old direction, back to the land.
When Michel Chapoutier assumed control of his family's Northern Rhône winery in 1990, it produced 45,000 cases a year of traditional-style wines, and business was pretty good. "But Michel likes to change things," said senior editor James Molesworth.
There is another monumental release at VINTAGES on Saturday, October 12, and given the number of wines offered (137) and the number of wines being purchased for Thanksgiving, I expect the stores to be plugged this weekend...
