Marius

The story behind Michel Chapoutier’s latest innovation, Marius, is a family tale. He remembers his great grandfather as a man with an insatiable thirst for life – and he is the dapper gentleman who graces the label on Marius wines. Marius Chapoutier played a key role in developing the family wine enterprise, acquiring vineyards in the Hermitage area and directing construction of a new winery in 1929. Michel shares his great grandfather’s visionary spirit and passion for life, wine and food; he crafted this wine to honor him.
