M. Chapoutier Les Bécasses Côte-Rôtie

The story began with Michel Chapoutier, a unique man with a thirst for knowledge, definitely one of a kind. He seeks to discover and reflect the full potential of his terroirs and let the soils express their true character.
This now forms the basis of the M. CHAPOUTIER ethos to reveal the very best of what the soils have to offer.

The Prestige line is M.Chapoutier’s heritage, representing classic Grands Crus signed Maison M. CHAPOUTIER and representative of their appellations in the Rhône Valley.

AGEING
Ageing lasts 14-16 months, where 80% of the wine is aged in oak barrels, mainly new wood and the remaining 20% in stainless steel vats to preserve the purity of the fruit and the floral notes, which are a distinctive feature of great Côte-Rôtie wines.
