Our estate is, without boasting, one of the finest in the Rhône Valley and includes 34ha on the hill of Hermitage and vineyards all the way from Condrieu to Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
Biodynamic viticulture is standard practice for our team in all our vineyards.
Over the years, Michel’s love of Rhône grape varieties has led him to discover other exceptional sites further afield in Roussillon, Provence, Alsace and Germany.
Today, the company’s vineyard portfolio includes:
Domaine de Bila-Haut – Roussillon
Here, the vineyards are planted on stony soils with rich geology – ranging from black & brown schist that give the wine its ripeness; gneiss that imparts minerality and freshness to limestone and chalk that result in wines with good balance and strength.
Mathilde Chapoutier Sélection – Languedoc and Duché d’Uzès
Languedoc parcel sits on limestone slopes that are cooled by strong southerly winds, whereas Duché D’Uzès vineyards are planted on gently sloping slopes from one of the newest AOP in France.
Château des Ferrages – Provence
The property is located in Pourcieux, between Aix-en-Provence and Saint-Maximinim. Part of the vineyards is planted on hillside plots, with part in prime plots of the Sainte-Victoire appellation. This area is recognized as one of the best for rosé production in southern France thanks to its corridor-like position, with cool afternoon breezes that freshen up the vineyards, retaining the good acidic profile in the grapes.
Marius – Pays d’Oc
The grapes for Marius wines are sourced from one of the key French producing regions – IGP Pays d’Oc that has a Mediterranean, hot climate, cooled by continental winds from the northwest with warm southerly winds that bring moisture to the vineyards.
Schieferkopf – Rhine Valley (Alsace & Germany)
On the French side, the organically managed vineyards are planted on the unique blue Alsace shale soil that imparts notes of salinity, whilst retaining acidity in grapes.
On the German side, the vineyards are planted on exceptional terroirs with granite subsoil and sandy topsoil in Baden; limestone in Pfalz and clay and limestone in Franken.
