Michel ChapoutierChairman and Winemaker
Unique, unconventional, curious about everything, Michel Chapoutier’s mind has never been static. Michel is a wine-lover and life-lover, always on the move, so are his ideas, his tastes and his wishes. “If I stay still, I fall.” His wine journey began when he was 26 years old and he became the head of M. CHAPOUTIER. Yet, he is not an inheritor – his choices and his vision were disruptive as he stood up against the established ways and ideas, completely changing both viticultural and vinification practices of his family company. He is a man close to the earth, on a quest for revealing terroirs and finding the expression of soils through the taste of his wines.
