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

DOMAINE ALINE ET REMY SIMON


VINS ROUGES DE SAINT-HIPPOLYTE
After the resumption of an ancestral family vineyard and with much of determination and will, the marketing of our production began during the years 1990. Most of our vines are at the foot of the majestic Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg. With 6 hectares of vines and in spite of the youth of the house, we produce mainly wines with High Expression and we align each year a score of vintages thanks to a keen work and to neat completions. Among a great number of references, let us quote inter alia the range of the Old Vines, the whole of our wines of soil like the BURGREBEN or SILBERGRUB without forgetting our famous “ROUGE DE SAINT-HIPPOLYTE”. In 2003, we celebrated the birth of our last cuvée: “HARMONIE”, a table wine which is declined in white or rosy according to mood. The typicity and the quality of our vintages are regularly rewarded in various competitions and re-examined: Guide hachette, Prix d’Excellence , medals…

HENRY NATTER


SANCERRE
Winegrowing of 23 ha, where one cultivates human heat with the same care that one brings to the vines, privileging fauna and the flora, “brooding them” to extract their quintessence and to let them from it express itself as well as possible, during a perfectly controlled and traditional maturing. These impassioned owners have indeed in heart to make discover subtleties of their environment, their soil and their work, so that each one of their bottle is a source of user-friendliness. Their daughter, Mathilde, work with them, her brother, Auguste, occupy more cellar. Since nearly 25 years, the Natter family is vivid by an Hmong team - originating in the mountains of the Laos - integrated into the culture of the wine. She impregnated single relation that these women and men maintain with the vegetable world. Together, they engage and take part in the installation of a protection of the local biodiversity. In 2005, the winegrowing gained the Trophy of the Best Very Small Exporter, at the time of the fiftieth anniversary of the club of the exporters of France. The agricultural regional Meeting decreed in Cécile and Henry the price of Honor for “atypical Vine growers”.

His André son, will ensure the succession and will take again the exploitation in the Forties. Then, her daughter Madeleine LASSERRE, wife of Jean COUBRIS will inherit it in the Sixties, and together, they will assume the responsibility for it until March 19th, 1981. And it is with passion that their child Jean-Louis COUBRIS accompanied by his sons Jean-Christophe and Cédric, ensures the wine making to perpetuate the family tradition. They work together with the development of the property during decades 80 and 90. To date, Cédric COUBRIS, continues the exploitation of 22 hectares vines on the 25 hectares of surface of the property, with her two daughters Lucie and Julie. “2015 and 2016 are two years exceptional which join for our greater pleasure the 2009 and 2010”, Cédric Coubris explains us. “After 2013 and 2014, very weak in volume but with a pretty quality, we have quality and the quantity. We even granted ourselves the luxury to gather the grapes 4 type of vines of the property in 4 times. Merlots then a first interruption before beginning again on Cabernets Sauvignon, idem for Cabernets francs and in end Petits Verdots.” While waiting, you will be able to discover this Moulis-in-Médoc Cru Bourgeois 2012, matured out of barrels during approximately 18 months, medal of Argent Paris 2014, with the persistent notes of undergrowth and blackberry, a wine which combines structure and flexibility, with dense tannins, which is tasted remarkably, perfect on a hare or lamb.

CHATEAU DES ROCHETTES


COTEAUX-DU-LAYON
If the vine were already present at XVème, it is Alphonse Roulleau (1885-1957) which directs really the production of Château de Rochettes towards the wine.

Following the marriage of his/her daughter Raymonde Roulleau with Louis Douet in 1946, the tradition remains, and marketing is directed towards the sales to individual out of barrels and bottles. In 1974, it is their only son Jean Douet who will take again the reins of the vineyard. Impassioned liqueur-like wines, it will set up a work group at beginning of the year 90 for the recognition and the coding of the mention “Sélection de Grains Nobles”. The retirement age approaching and not having a child interested by the recovery, it agrees to sell Château de Rochettes to Catherine Nolot, already owner of a nearby vineyard the “ Domaine de L’Eté ”. A vineyard of 25 ha where the control of the vine is done in the respect of the soil and the environment (putting under grass). The wine makings are personalized for each type of wines. According to the vintages, ageing lasts 6 to 18 months.

PIERRE FRICK


PINOT BLANC
In 1970, the winegrowing is converted with the biological culture, the first applications of organic-dynamie beginning in 1981. Starting from harvest 1986, the Demeter mention is obtained, and, since harvest 2002, the wine is not stopped any more with cork but with capsules crowns in Inox, to avoid the organoleptic deviations (savors and aromas) caused by the stoppers cork. Wine making without any additive, manual grape harvest, indigenous yeasts, maturing on the lees during 9 months. Much liked Gewurztraminer 2009, with these subtle connotations where intermingle the ripe white fruits, the fresh spices and flowers, of intense mouth.

Taste its original vintage, the Blanc de noirs 2009, a beautiful expression of the very ripe Pinot noir vinified in white. “A manner of vinifying a Pinot noir, specifies me Jean-Pierre Frick, without correction and additives (except a little sulfur after racking). Always naturalness! Coppered yellow robe, intense and complex undergrowth aromas, liquorice, mild tobacco, yellow fruits and truffle, stops full and nervous, beautiful association with a turkey with wild mushrooms.” Superb Gewurztraminer Grand cru Eichberg Vendanges Tardives 2005, a fleshy and complex great wine, where the brioche, the flowers and honey intermingle, of a great intensity to the palate.
