September wine offer – Great wines from a historical producer!
Chapoutier was established in 1808 and has throughout its history remained within the family, having been passed from generation to generation. The philosophy of the vineyard is all about quality with all the wines representing outstanding value for money and exceptional quality. The wines are organically made and the vineyards bio-dynamically grown ensuring that the wines are not only represent the soil and climate that they come but they represent a return to nature and the same style of farming practiced by the vineyard’s fore-fathers. New to MMI is the benchmark Côte du Rhône, Belleruche – a must try and one of our favorites; concentrated, complex with the hallmark peppery character that we love. Another wine from Chapoutier to try, is the Bila-Haut, this comes from a newer vineyard away from the winery’s historical homeland of the Rhône and offers the same level of quality of its older sibling in a slightly more fruit driven style.
