It is impossible to talk about the M. Chapoutier company without referring to 1808, the year in which it all began. It was almost 210 years ago.
The appellation of Saint-Joseph stretches for some fifty kilometers on the right bank of the River Rhône, from Chavanay in the north to Guilherand-Granges near Valence in the south. The mainly east-facing vines are planted on the steep slopes of local gneiss and granitic shale, occasionally coated with loess lenses. This variety of substrates allows us to combine complexity, volume and firmness in our Deschants wine.
Part of the wine is vinified in oak casks and the other part in stainless steel vats. Aging is carried out on the lees with agitation. The two wines are blended immediately before bottling (8 to 9 months after harvest).
