Talents


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. 


HALL OF FAME

EARL FREY CHARLES ET DOMINIQUE


PINOT NOIR
Our family winegrowing cultivates 13 ha of vines on 3 communes (Dambach la Ville, Scherwiller and Châtenois). Our ancestors, coming from Switzerland, settled in Dambach la Ville at the 17th century and practiced the mixed-farming like very many Alsatian families. It is with my grandfather Joseph FREY and my Charles father that the sale out of bottle started. Nathalie and Dominique give a new commercial dash to Winegrowing FREY Charles and Dominique with the first exports in the European countries or to Japan, Canada, the United States. In 1997, we decided to pass the estate in biological culture under Ecocert control. Since 2001, we practice the biodynamy with much happiness. We try to transmit to the wine energy and the life which we give to the grapes so that this one is more digeste and most alive possible. Above all, the culture biodynamics is a work of care of the ground. It is a question of ensuring balance and of creating harmonious living conditions of it between ground, plant and environment. The various treatments of the vine are systematically accompanied by herb teas of plants (nettle, prêle, willow). The compost and the work of the ground are fundamental. The grapes are gathered manually. The grape is versed in entirety on the press without pressing nor picking off in order not to damage it. Pressing is done slowly and carefully. After fermentation, the wines are matured on lees until spring. Remarkable Pinot gris Quintessence 2009, with the aromas of grilled almond, yellow robe to the reflections of gold, a wine powerful and distinguished at the same time, rich with the nose as in mouth, very harmonious, all stops some like Gewurztraminer Clos Saint-Sébastien 2009, all of structure and perfumes, with notes of hazel nut and rose, a powerful, dry and supple wine at the same time, all in smoothness. Always taste their brut Crémant d’Alsace brut Plaisir Perlant Millésimé, which releases from the nuances of white flowers and honey, of a beautiful color but, a full and scented vintage, of fruity, light and round mouth at the same time, of persistent foam, really charmer. Gewurztraminer Collines de Granit 2011 is elegant, delicate and air, a fruity wine, where freshness prevails, while Riesling Vieilles Vignes 2010 is all of structure and perfumes, of very subtle mouth with almond notes, at the same time mineral and smoked.

CHATEAU LOUPIAC-GAUDIET


LOUPIAC
The 28-hectare vineyard lies around the Château and faces due south. The vines are very old, some as much as 40 years old, and are planted on clay-limestone soils on hillsides looking down onto the Garonne river. The vine varieties are classical for the appellation: 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon. The estate lies next to the magnificent Romanesque church of Loupiac dating from the XIIth century. The climate here is ideal for the growth of the Botrytis Cinéréa rot, with its morning mists and sunny autumn afternoons. As soon as the rot appears, the harvesting is done by hand in the traditional way: the grapes are picked exclusively by hand in a series of selection processes which go on from October through to mid-November. The wine-making process involves all the skills accumulated over 4 generations, combined with modern techniques to produce a fine, elegant wine with a beautiful golden colour. It is unctuous and very fruity with complex aromas of acacia and toast. Smooth in the mouth with a lot of freshness. A wine which ages well and is matured for two years before being bottled. These fresh, delicate wines are a perfect aperitif. They leave a nice, fresh impression in the mouth, which is ideal if you are going to taste other wines afterwards. Perfect with foie gras, poultry, white meat, cheese and fruit desserts.
