(Bio=Life) + (Dynamics= In action)
Love for vines, wine and the need to respect the earth and its terroir have led the Maison M. CHAPOUTIER to adopt a biodynamic cultivation method.
This demanding method of cultivation has become a genuine philosophy for the Maison M. CHAPOUTIER. An unflinching desire: ensure that soils are living and as expressive as possible. As to propose an “appellation d’origine contrôlée” is to propose, above all, an expression of the terroir.
This expression, a transmutation of mineral to plant, can only exist with a terroir that is in good condition, a terroir that is alive.
Difference of taste
« Let the soil speak, express the terroir and its vintage », we can resume in these terms the quest of the maison M. CHAPOUTIER. The originality and gustative signature of the maison M. CHAPOUTIER lies in this desire not to cultivate its own “specific taste”, a set style. Rather its desire is to continuously work on a difference of taste, that small specific gustative touch, specific to each terroir and to each wine…
The expression of an assertive, confident personality, Braille has been present since 1996 on all M. CHAPOUTIER labels. Far from being anecdotic, this symbol draws its origin from the very history of the Hermitage vineyard. Maurice Monier de La Sizeranne, owner of the plot of the Hermitage, la Sizeranne, is also the inventor of the first version of abbreviated Braille.
The trademark pays tribute to this man but also expresses the desire to reach out to and include all people with sight-impairments, lovers of good wines.
