Chapoutier Grabs #66 & #77 Spots on Top 100 List

Each year, Wine Spectator editors survey the wines reviewed over the previous 12 months and select our Top 100, based on quality, value, availability and excitement. This annual list honors successful wineries, regions and vintages around the world.

This year Chapoutier made the list TWICE!

dtcshira-viog-nvbotl300dpi#66 – Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz-Viognier 2013      

91 pts

Fresh and expressive, medium-weight but vivid, with black cherry and floral notes, balanced by a stony minerality that glides into the long finish against fine tannins. Drink now through 2020.

#77 – M. Chapoutier Chante Alouette 2014

95 pts

Gorgeous, showing remarkable range, with jasmine, honeysuckle, acacia and chamomile notes leading the way, followed by star fruit, yellow apple and green fig fruit flavors. The long, mineral-edged finish adds just the right amount tension, while the fruit and floral elements cascade over one another. Drink now through 2029.
