Summer Offer 2024

    Qoupla is delighted to have the privilege to offer you M.Chapoutier’s wines directly from the producer for this summer sale!

    The story began with Michel Chapoutier, a unique man with a thirst for knowledge, definitely one of a kind. Michel is openminded and always willing to learn. He seeks to discover and reflect the full potential of his terroirs and let the soils express their true character. That which gives the wines their signature style. This now forms the basis of the M. CHAPOUTIER ethos and our team strives to reveal the very best of what the soils have to offer.

    Nowadays, sharing his philosophy with his next generation, humility is at the heart of the M. CHAPOUTIER soul. Nature always has the final say. The winemaker observes, decides and guides nature in the most respectful way possible. ‘Fac et spera’ (do and hope), has become the family currency, an ethos which has given rise to three fundamental values. Our founding values.

    Mathilde’s world

    Discovery, simplicity, conviviality… for Mathilde Chapoutier (Michel’s daughter) wine is the fruit of pleasure. Through encounters and appellations, different soils reveal their secrets with their different characteristics. A journey, the idea of transmission, is meaningful. Wine is a permanent exploration, a never-ending journey. Mathilde Chapoutier explored various wine regions, in France and around the world, in order to create this selection of her favorites. The compass rose on her selection is the symbol. This figure symbolizes Mathilde’s quest out of Rhône Valley region and her travels throughout discoveries.

    Partnerships with famous french chefs

    Maison M. CHAPOUTIER’s encounters are based on discoveries and adventures in the Rhône Valley and beyond, both in France and abroad. Encounters based on shared beliefs and a passion for the terroir. A spontaneous attraction to lands that have their own story to tell.

    Joseph Viola and Michel Chapoutier

    Elegance and generosity are what these two men have in common.
    Chef Joseph Viola, Meilleur Ouvrier de France, seeks to create mythical, authentic dishes in his two ‘Bouchons Lyonnais’ awarded restaurants. And Michel Chapoutier, passionate about winemaking, who seeks to reveal the truth that lies in the soils and the terroirs.

    Anne-Sophie Pic & Michel Chapoutier

    Anne-Sophie Pic & Michel Chapoutier. They both agreed very early on to move off the beaten track. They share the conviction that food, for Anne-Sophie, or wine, for Michel, can be reinvented and they both desire to bring their own interpretation to each of these areas.

    These wines were selected to be enjoyed with friends during warm summer afternoons, with the central piece being the barbeque fire and all its delights. From tasty king prawns and couscous salad to smoked salmon or savory entrecôtes, this selection has a wine for all. Enjoy!

    Côtes-du-Rhône 2022 Joseph Viola et Michel Chapoutier 75cl

    Grape Varieties: Grenache-Syrah.
    Terroir: The clay-limestone soils in the valley between Aygues and Ouvèze enjoy a particularly sunny micro-climate, sheltered from the Mistral wind. A short distance away, Mont Ventoux influences the climate with cool nights (helping the synthesis of polyphenols in the skins). This vineyard situated at altitude (300 to 500 metres) gives the wine its crisp, fresh character.
    Harvest: The grapes, grown in selected vineyard parcels, are picked mechanically, early in the morning, to protect the musts from oxydation and to preserve the varietal aromas.
    Vinification: After destemming, the grapes are vinified in concrete tanks for four weeks. Pumping over operations are staggered and carried out each day to gently extract the aromatic substances, anthocyanins and tannins. The temperature of the alcoholic fermentation is checked and regulated. At the very end of alcoholic fermentation, the temperature is allowed to rise to 30-32°C to help the polymerization of the tannins. This will be followed by malolactic fermentation (natural deacidification).
    Maturing: Ageing in concrete tanks for 6 months.
    – Colour: intense garnet red.
    – Nose: powerful and spicy on the nose with subtle red fruit overtones.
    – Palate: big on the palate with lovely freshness and gorgeous red fruit on entry. This is a powerful wine with chiseled tannins and lovely aromatic freshness on the finish.
    Joseph Viola suggests with this wine: shoulder of Limousin lamb confit in its juice.
    Serving Temperature: 16-18°C.
    Ageing Potential: 3-5 years.

    Cornas 2022 Anne-Sophie Pic & Michel Chapoutier Organic 75cl

    Grape variety: Syrah.
    Terroir: A blend of grapes from 3 areas in the appellation:
    – Foothills made up of alluvium from a highly decomposed granite bedrock (gore). Early ripening areas (Cayret, Mazards, etc.).
    – Granite slopes with more limestone, located in the north of the appellation (Arlettes).
    – A later ripening area at higher altitude (Saint-Pierre) composed of granitic sands with limestone and silt deposits.
    Harvest: Harvesting is carried out by hand.
    Vinification : Traditional vinification in concrete tanks. Extraction using the pumping over method. 4 week maceration period.
    Maturing : The wine is aged for 14 months in oak barrels previously used for one to two vintages.
    – Colour: deep, black hue.
    – Nose: very black, complex and slightly reductive on the nose. The wine shows notes of ripe, wild black fruit, which are then joined by notes of graphite, carbon and soot.
    – Palate: massive on entry to the palate with tight, fine tannins and lovely mineral tautness. Overall, the wine gives a sensation of volume, is full-bodied on the palate, well- structured, meaty and crisp. This is a powerful, distinguished Cornas, which shows a great deal of balance and finesse.
    Anne-Sophie Pic’s suggested pairing: duck confit with lavender and herbs.
    Serving temperature: 17-18°C.
