Les Vins du Siècle est un grand site fédérateur, bilingue et mondial. Dans toute la France, « triés sur le volet », les meilleurs producteurs (la très grande majorité ayant l’exclusivité de leur appellation) sont retenus pour la typicité des vins, leur rapport qualité-prix-plaisir, l'expression de leur terroir et leur passion de vignerons. 

Pas de vins à la mode, surcôtés ou de "jus de bois" dans Les Vins du Siècle. La typicité d’un vin, ce n’est rien d’autre que l’association d’un sol, d’un micro-climat, d’une plante et d’un homme.  On ne peut aimer un vin qu’en appréciant celui qui le fait. Derrière une étiquette, il y a un viticulteur (ou une viticultrice) et c’est fondamental de ne pas les dissocier. Bien sûr, les sols ont une influence considérable et, dans chaque territoire, dans chaque commune, le vigneron fait la différence avec son voisin.

Il ne s’agit donc pas seulement de faire du bon vin, ce que tout le monde peut faire, mais surtout d’élever de vrais vins racés, reconnaissables entre mille, qui sentent ce “fumé” bourguignon, déploient ce “velours” libournais, ces senteurs alsaciennes, cette “chair” en Médoc ou à Châteauneuf, cette “minéralité” à Pouilly ou à Meursault, cette fraîcheur en Champagne comme dans nos grands liquoreux.

This house proposes to you this superb Champagne Grand Cru Millésimé 2000, all stops some, rich and complex, powerful and persistent, very fruity with the nose as in mouth, with crystallized notes, extremely well proportioned, perfect on a roast poultry.

Family continuity precedes here. Today, Jean-Pierre Cointreau, in addition President of the National union of the liquor producers, take up his duties within the various entities of family Group and intend to undertake a perennial development of these two companies, Champagne Gosset and Cognac Frapin. For the history, Champagne Gosset, the oldest Wine House in Champagne: Aÿ 1584, was acquired by the family group Renaud-Cointreau (Domaine Frapin, in Cognac) in 1993. Side anecdote, let us stress that the traditional practice of stopping cork and fastening is maintained on certain large bottles, during ageing on slats. The “Gosset style” is thus specific to an art of living which, for more than four centuries, has been transmitted from generation to generation, combining a solid good sense with the elegance of the heart and spirit. It is a style resulting from an exceptional friable limestone soil supporting the optimal development of the vine and from a know-how to no one another similar. Odilon de Varine, cellar master with the same production line team since years, thus perpetuate the know-how and the Gosset style. Dynamic house, resolutely turned towards the future. The creation, in 1995, of the prestige cuvée Gosset Celebris will have been the highlight of this will to improve the quality dramatically. Regarded as one returned with the history and the various generations of the Gosset family and mainly composed of Grand and Premiers crus of Chardonnay of the Côte des Blancs, Pinot noir of the Montagne de Reims, and the Grande vallée de la Marne (Aÿ), this cuvée is the floret of the House. Superb range “Celebris”, which reveals the truth of the wine in all its splendor thanks to its extra-brut dosage, the perfect interpretation of the ancestral know-how of the House. You will thus like the Celebris Rosé 2007, with a limpid and luminous pink reflection, very aromatic with notes of wild strawberry, raspberry and wild blackberry, delicately associated to rose and violet, with a fresh and very elegant structure, full and long lasting, a splendid rosé, a gorgeous expression of this beautiful vintage. There is also the Gosset Celebris Vintage Extra-Brut 2007, with its minty notes, slightly spicy on the nose. The mouth is long lasting and end on the beautiful bitterness of the chardonnay with grape-fruit notes.


A domain on ground of rocky sands. The vineyard of 13 ha consists of 50 % Cabernet-Sauvignon, 40 % Merlot, 5 % frank Cabernet and Small 5 % Verdot. Wine making according to the traditional médocaines methods, and ageing from 12 to 18 months in oak barrels. The new owner, Thierry Kerdreux, in a real will to work in a more reasoned culture while keeping all the team of the domain which has a big experience and a knowledge of these wines. Here is an excellent Médoc 2012, in the aromas of ripe fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry) and of licorice, an enriched, fleshy wine in mouth, with nuances of fruits cooked in pit and cinnamon, ample and frank, typified and deep color, completed with, for example, A navarin of knuckle of lamb or veal flanks in mushrooms and tomato. Attractive 2011, of dark dress, it is a wine in the velvety tannins, of dense mouth, in the complex bouquet. Beautiful 2010, of beautiful purple tint, in the so rich but ripe tannins, was dominated by the blackcurrant and the raspberry, very fleshy as one needs. The 2009, of intense purple color, in the powerful and subtle nose at the same time, in the notes of ripe fruits (blackcurrant, Morello cherry) and of truffle, allies aromatic concentration and flexibility, and pursues its evolution. Excellent 2008, in the very elegant but firm tannins also, marked by its soil fat, persistent and intense in aromas as in structure, with these nuances of blackcurrant and undergrowth and licorice, a wine of supple and structured skeleton.


These likeable owners brood their vineyard of 6 ha crashed on croups and tray of argilo-calcareous structure and whose vines are 35 years old. The type of vines Merlot (65%), Cabernet franc (25%) and Cabernet-Sauvignon (10%) are associated with this soil argilo-limestone and meticulous care (stripping, grapes sorted before picking off, long macerations, breeding out of barrels, of which 1/3 is renewed each year…). One is well at the top with their Puisseguin-Saint-Émilion 2014, a reference, very balanced, of full mouth where dominate the ripe fruits (plum, raspberry), of nice color crimson, a wine which combines flexibility and structure, to wait a little to benefit from all its potential. Very beautiful 2012, fleshy, very tasty, with the notes of currant and humuses characteristic, which mingle a tannic smoothness with a roundness in mouth persistent, of a final with these notes of smoked and wild strawberry surmûrie. The 2011 develop spiced notes, with the complex nose where dominate the ripe small fruits (blackcurrant, currant), rich and flexible at the same time, quite representative of this very pretty vintage year, perfect with a braised pigeon or a string beef. The 2008 of color garnet-red, rich, with the intense nose, is complex, of a beautiful final where the ripe black cherry and the underwoods dominate, wine of a flattering and rich mouth at the same time. The 2007 are very successful, a balanced and flexible wine, with melted tannins, very pleasant with this nose of violet and ripe red small fruits, which associates distinction and richness, full and fatty, and is tasted very well. Structure and roundness, characterize this excellent 2006, all in mouth, fine and fat, quite fleshy, a very scented wine (violet, black cherry) which continues its beautiful evolution. Taste their Moulin Saint-Clair 2015, which reveals notes of violet and blackberry, rich color, traditional, combining smoothness and structure, of very good evolution. Tasty 2014, with the nose of red small fruits, with tannins molten but quite present, a rich and very aromatic wine, of a beautiful harmony.
