Michel Chapoutier named “Man of the Year”

French publication Le Monde announces that the respected Guide Bettane et Desseauve des vins de France has elected Michel Chapoutier as “Man of the Year” in the 2014 edition. They signal in particular his role in biodynamic viticulture, which he initiated when he took over the family company in the early 1990s. The two authors, Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve, call Chapoutier the “most important proprietor on the hill of Hermitage” who has also developed noteworthy projects in Roussillon and Australia.
