The Chapoutier story

Michel is a journalist’s dream, in that he talks in wonderfully quotable soundbites. ‘My idea is not to try to make the best wine possible,’ says Michel, ‘but to take pictures of the terroir.’ He suggests that there are three elements to terroir: soil, climate and humans. He also adds in the vintage as part of the equation. ‘If vintage is part of terroir, we shouldn’t try to correct the vintage; we should never acidify and never capitalize,’ he asserts. ‘Too many winemakers try to correct the vintage. For me, the quality is done in the vineyard and the winemaking has to be extremely simple.’
