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

CEDRIC CHIGNARD


FLEURIE
Cédric Chignard took the responsability for this winegrowing of 8 ha since 2007 (4th generation). Her father, Michel, impassioned owner knew to transmit his values to him in order to let as well as possible express the soil according to each vintage, and mature large Fleurie as one should see some more often, that is wine where elegance is combined with a tannic presence good real. The grape harvest is manual, the traditional wine making by whole bunches, and the maturing is done out of tanks, tuns or barrels. Superb Fleurie Les Moriers 2011, which owes its secular notoriety with a privileged ground, resulting from the granite where it plunges its roots, of color crimson, with complex nuances of fruits of wood, violet and plum, very delicate but very structured, promising success. The 2010, with the intense nose where the ripe fruits (currant, strawberry) and the humus intermingle, are a fullbodied wine, with tannins present and tasty, matured very well, combining powerfull and smoothness, of guard. Fleurie cuvée Spéciale Vieilles Vignes 2010 is really remarkable, a wine of color steady cherry, with the cooked fruit aromas (strawberry, currant) and undergrowth, very well-balanced, with tannins firm and melted at the same time, with this finely spiced mouth. Beautiful 2009, of mouth intense and prevailed by blackberry and the violet, a wine combining suppleness and aromatic, harmonious and very well-balanced intensity, which agrees perfectly with a leg, but deserves to be preserved for better benefitting from its potential. Many rewards obtained and largely deserved.

CRU LAMOUROUX


JURANCON
The Cru Lamouroux was bought in 1895 by the great-grandfather of the current owner, Mme Ziemek-Chigé. This very nice vineyard is located on rather deep slopes of argilo-siliceous ground with exposed slopes south-south-west, sheltered well wind by timbered thalwegs, at an altitude of 300 Mr. Certaines vines are planted on terraces laid out in amphitheater. The planted grape varieties consist of 3,50 ha of Petit Manseng and 1,77 ha Gros Manseng, 0,51 ha of Cabernets franc and Sauvignon. The grape harvest is done by successive sorting. The grapes, for the development of the Jurançon sec, are collected with perfect maturity about on October 30th, whereas the overripe grape harvest for the Jurançon begins after November 15th until Christmas. The grape harvest of grape red begins about the 2nd week from October. The wine making is the very attentive care object (in a hurry one is done with low pressure, great control temperatures…). The wines are then matured out of tanks stainless for the dry wines or out of barrels of oak for the others. Certain vintages remain between 1 year (cuvée Amélie-Jean) and 2 years (cuvée Nathalie) in old barrels. Formidable Jurançon moelleux cuvée Amélie-Jean 2005, in tribute to their parents, pure Petit Manseng, resulting from vines without weeding, without pressing, matured during 1 year in old barrels of oak, a wine superb, with the notes of pink and small candied fruits, a wine of a very beautiful balance, rich and delicate at the same time, tasty, dense and quite velvety, prevailed stops some by nuances of brioche, of great evolution. One gives as much pleasure with this mellow Jurançon 2006, (80% Petit Manseng and 20% Gros Manseng), a suave wine, very scented, of flattering and persistent mouth, all in bouquet, mixing powerfull and really remarkable distinction. Superb Jurançon cuvée Nathalie 2004, pure Petit Manseng, with the melted mouth, a full wine, with the discrete notes of lemon and white flowers, all stops some, all in smoothness, of nice golden robe, prevailed by emanations of small candied fruits and hazel nut finally, of guard. The 2003, of a beautiful persistence and aromatic complexity with the palate, subtle with the nose as in mouth, is a wine of nice brilliant robe, very attractive with these nuances of acacia, candied fruits and white flowers. Jurançon Tradition sec is a success, of nice dyes steady, very fresh, with almond and white fruit notes, to open on a roasted lobster.

DOMAINE CRET DES GARANCHES


COTE-DE-BROUILLY
In the south of Mont Brouilly, Sylvie Dufaitre-Genin, viticultrice, produced of Brouilly and Côte-de-Brouilly and cultivate with conviction her 11.60 ha of vines, type of vine Gamay black with white juice.

The wine then takes its robe ruby and its aromas of red fruits and flowers in the cellar. The permanent attention and the passion of Sylvie Dufaitre-Genin make the remainder. “For several years, she specifies, the Crêt des Garanches has engaged in a respectful step of nature by removing the use of insecticides on its estate. In order to guarantee the good development of the vines of Gamay black to white juice which produces the wine of the winegrowing, it is the natural regulation of fauna and the local flora which fills its work. Every year, the vines, of a 40 years average of age, is gathered the grapes with the hand. Then these grapes are vinified according to the traditional method beaujolaise, which confers on Brouilly and Côte-de-Brouilly their so particular characters.” Here is a good beautiful Brouilly 2011, coming from 40 year old vines gathered the grapes manually, it is matured 7 months out of tanks, of steady color, well-balanced, scented, with blackcurrant the nose and spices, an opulent wine with silky tannins. The 2010 are excellent, of deep color, full, with the nose where prevail the cooked fruits, with ripe tannins, all in persistence, a beautiful traditional, intense wine and charmer with the palate. Excellent Côte-de-Brouilly 2009, with the subtle aromas where the ripe fruits and the violet prevail, all of structure, very typified, combining smoothness and structure, a wine of powerful mouth, excellent evolution as attests of them the 2006, a wine of very beautiful robe steady crimson, with the notes of blackberry and of leather, slightly spiced, a fort beautiful evolution continues. Brouilly 2009, Sélection of Tastevinage d' Automne 2010, with the nose prevailed by the strawberry and blackberry, rich, are structured, of a nice final, a traditional wine, with tannins ripe but quite present. Taste also Brouilly 2009, production limited to 500 bottles, matured 18 months out of barrels of French (new), not filtered oak, natural degree 14,4°, a wine of steady color, fullbodied and powerful mouth, beautiful matter, with the cherry connotations, undergrowth and spices, with ample tannins, which deserves patience.

DOMAINE DE LA GUILLOTERIE


SAUMUR-CHAMPIGNY
Managed by the Duveau family for several generations, the vineyard of Domaine de la Guilloterie today covers 50 hectares. Set to the south of the Loire and on the banks of its tributary the Thouet, this area benefits from weather conditions that are particularly favourable to vine-growing. On this clay-limestone soil, the vine-varieties flourish, giving expressive, characterful, distinctive wines. Domaine de la Guilloterie produces an excellent Saumur white, made exclusively with the Chenin variety. It is fresh, with highly distinctive, flattering aromas. The Saumur red is supple and very aromatic, with good body enabling a short ageing period. The Saumur Champigny is very harmonious and distinctive, with lasting aromas of red fruit - a complex, elegant wine. The Saumur Mousseux brut and the Crémant de Loire both have fine bubbles and are made according to traditional methods. They are most pleasant when drunk chilled.

BESTHEIM


GEWURZTRAMINER
It is in 1765, in Westhalten, small village of Haut-Rhin blotti in the middle of Vallée Noble, which is born Maison Heim. Always carried by the love of the trade and the soil, the successors of Alfred Heim put themselves in search of new grounds and were installed on the slopes of Bennwihr. Heim thus became Bestheim, associating in the name of origin the contraction of the names of the villages where the company vinifies and matures its various vintages. Bestheim exploits today a splendid mosaic of soils. It became unavoidable within the Alsatian vineyard. Bestheim is a company particularly committed in the safeguarding of the environment and is invested with the daily newspaper in this step at the same time in the vineyard as within the company (reasoned fight, recycling, valorization of waste…). Bestheim produces all the range of the wines of Alsace going from Crémants to seven Alsaciens type of vines. One finds in the range not less than 6 places known as (of which Klevener de Heiligenstein) and 6 Grand crus (Rosacker, Wiebelsberg, Mambourg, Marckrain, Vorbourg and Zinnkoepflé).
