Overview

Chaupin was first conceived when Eric Solomon began importing Domaine de la Janasse to the US in 1990. At the time, Eric was struck by the purity and energy of the old-vine Grenache that Christophe Sabon made from the lieu-dit of Chapouin and he convinced him to bottle a portion of this wine as a separate cuvée. Since that time the sourcing of Chaupin has expanded to include Grenache from sandy soils in La Janasse and Le Crau.

Isabelle Sabon shares the details of Chaupin in this video from our friends at Jysk Vin.
