Chapoutier is long established as one of Rhone’s top wine producers, in fact if you are lucky enough, you could fly into Lyon and drive an hour south to the region. A serious bucket list place. Hermitage hill is a Unesco world heritage site and you can walk to the top. The town is sleepy enough but the food offering combined with cellar doors makes it a Mecca for French wine lovers.

Meysonniers is brilliant value and we love it so much so that its one of our wines of the year so far. Full bodied, elegant and fruity, definitely open it for 1-2 hours before drinking.
