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.
Our domains and maisons
Domaine de Bila-Haut
It was in Latour de France that he chose to set up his domain. The vines of Bila-Haut and Occultum Lapidem were the first expressions of this terroir.
Dominio del Soto
Spanish wines have always been a favourite of Michel Chapoutier. It was therefore of no surprise that the company should look for a domain there.
Château des Ferrages
Cherry-picked by Mathilde Chapoutier Selection, the Château des Ferrages domain is in Pourcieux, halfway between Aix-en-Provence and Saint-Maximin, in the prime plots of the Sainte-Victoire appellation.
In 2009, Michel Chapoutier picked out a plot in the Douro Valley. A small – very small – plot of 3 hectares. A few meetings with local producers later, a new story begins.
Domaine Roc Folassière
In Valliguières, Gard county, the Roc Folassière domain brings with it an age-old quest.
Schieferkopf heralds a new discovery of Alsatian and German terroirs.
For Michel Chapoutier, Australia was pure intuition. In 1997, it becomes a love at first sight.
This domain held a twin appeal for M. CHAPOUTIER: a vineyard already converted to organic in Montfrin in Gard county.
There are numerous similarities between Maison Trenel and M. CHAPOUTIER, their shared love of excellence being the first.
Marius by Michel Chapoutier
As Marius, Michel Chapoutier’s great-grandfather, always said ‘A good wine is one that beckons us to take another sip’.
