Our terroirs

“The Quality of the raw material comes first and foremost from the vineyards, not from Vinification.” Michel Chapoutier

The heart and soul of M. CHAPOUTIER

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.

Mathilde's world

Discovery, simplicity, conviviality… for Mathilde Chapoutier, 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, an never-ending journey.

Maxime's world

Even if his passion for wine is absolutely alive. Maxime Chapoutier opens his own path. A desire to explore, to do for yourself. To surprise yourself. Without losing sight of this fundamental anchor: the vineyard.

Our domains and maisons

When M. CHAPOUTIER acquires a new domain, the company relies on those who created it and use the company’s know-how to improve it further. Then, a direction is given, a philosophy explained. This includes the crucial point of allowing the terroir to express itself, according to biodynamic principles. Working the earth with the minimum of inputs and no chemical products, in a quest to highlight the singularity of that particular terroir and add value to it.


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.
