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. 



A winegrowing estate of 21 ha. These young wine growers were rewarded in 2005 by the Départemental price for Dynamique Agricole. We do not use any more the weeding chemical one in our vines, they specify, which are enherbées between the rows and are worked on the surface with the foot. Very traditional of the year, this remarkable Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Vieilles Vignes 2013, soil argilo-limestone, is a wine where the structure and the smoothness dominate, with the notes of truffle and wild strawberry, of nice color, typified, of flattering and rich at the same time, dense mouth, with ripe, for ageing tannins.   the 2012 is particularly successful in this capricious year, fleshy, with tannins quite present, harmonious, a firm and silky wine at the same time, with a flexible and persistent mouth.   the 2011 of beautiful garnet-red color, fleshy, is very balanced, with the flavors of spices, cooked red fruits and violet, with silky tannins. Their other Saint-Nicolas-in-Bourgueil Les Graviers 2013, elaborate on sand and flint soils, is rich color as out of matter, with the subtle nose of stone-fruits, all in mouth, of garnet-red color, finely spiced.   Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil rosé 2013, rather rare, is also a success, with this nose of peony, frankly and fond of delicacies.

Family estate of 5.36 ha, including 4.60 ha of vine with which prevails of Pinot meunier. It is Robert Massonnot, the grandfather of David Bourdaire, who began the agri-wine activity thanks to some family grounds. In 1951, it founds with three other vine growers the co-operative of Pouillon and markets its first bottles in 1956. At that time, the co-operative is only one place of collection and pressing, which sells the harvest of the members in the form of musts to the traders Champagne. They are only 2 to make their Champagne, themselves in the buildings of the co-operative with their own material. The house proposes this Champagne brut cuvée Symphonie Prestige (harvest 2007 bases) a subtle and complex Champagne, which associates freshness and structure, finely acidulous, one of most attractive tasted this year, with connotations of lemon, Narcisse and toast, delicate and fruity foam, of a beautiful fullness to the palate, to uncork on a pot of burbot. Tasty Champagne brut rosé, pure Meunier, very representative of this type of vine, very attractive, of beautiful robe, with the ripe fruit nose (currant, raspberry…), with this very cordial delicately spiced key. The Millésime 2005, is very characteristic of this mature vintage, a powerful wine, of round mouth, slightly spiced as it should be, with the aromas intense, with prevailing of hazel nut and apricot, harmonious with the nose as in mouth. Beautiful Champagne Blanc de blancs, coming from the harvest 2007, of which a part is vinified out of barrels, a vintage rich but all in delicacy (proportioned with 7g/l), typified well, very scented (citrus fruits, almond…), a quite robust, harmonious wine in mouth, of excellent evolution. Taste also brut Réserve, a sharp and harmonious Champagne, marked by notes of citrus fruits and fresh flowers, round and highly-strung person at the same time, who agrees perfectly during a meal.


This family property, exploited by the SCEA Meunier and son since 1988, belongs today to the GFA Meunier. It is the 5th generation which directs the winegrowing. The first pieces of this small vineyard were acquired around 1840, and are located on old sands west of village of Saint-Emilion, near Château Figeac and of Château Cheval Blanc. The grape harvest is done manually, after having determined the date of harvest by analyzes and tasting of bays. The grapes are transported to the vat in bastes, then are picked off, sorted and pressed to be then conveyed in small tanks for fermentation. Here were very delicious Château La Croix Meunier cuvée Georges Meunier 2014, in the deep robe, in the aromas of spices, leather and blueberry, a beautiful complexity, which develops fat and harmonious tannins, and notes melted in finale, in the nuances of licorice and blackberry. I appreciated much the 2009, of robe crimson steady, superb, with the truffle notes, of a great harmony, scented, with a well balanced mellowness, generous and persistent, of guard like the 2008, which develops aromas of musk and morello cherry, with coated but rich tannins, quite fleshy. The 2006 tastes particularly well, of deep color, with the complex nose where prevail the blackcurrant and the undergrowth, a fullbodied and dense wine, of very good evolution.


A remarkable owner who manages, with his wife Hélène, and his son Vincent, a beautiful vineyard built up patiently over the years and which now covers 37 hectares, including about 10 in Premiers Crus aand others in Chablis, Petit Chablis and Grand Cru, including a fantastic Valmur, one of the greats in Chablis. Gérard Tremblay is meticulous, hard-working and devoted to quality. This tenacious chap makes his wines using all the modern techniques in the name furthering traditional know-how. His strength is that he takes just as much care with the maturing of his Grands Crus as of his Chablis. In blind tasting, many would get quite a surprise at the quality of these wines. The Petit Chablis is rounded and flowery with very expressive primary aromas, whereas the Chablis is more fleshy, full-bodied and long with very strong character. Chablis 1er Cru "Beauroy" has great finesse and good harmony, the Chablis 1er Cru "Côte de Léchet" has a complex nose in which dried fruits dominate. Fresh, very rich aromas in the mouth. The 1er Cru "Montmain" has a fine, complex nose, very long in the mouth. The Chablis 1er Cru "Fourchaume" is the must of the winery - the nose and mouth are charmed by all those aromas of honey and white flowers, as well as the great length in the mouth. The Chablis Cru "Valmur", often splendid, has a very typical nose with a blend of power and distinction. In the mouth, it is fleshy and suave with gentle aromas of honey and good length.


A winegrowing of 12 ha (11 in red and one in white Pacherenc), on a ground thin, silico-argillaceous, very stony, where the southern exposure full to mid--slope makes it possible to obtain wines of very great quality. The vines are planted at the top of a slope, and it is the only winegrowing of madirannais to have the vines of only one holding. The thirty years planted grape varieties of average age are composed of 50% Tannat and 50% Cabernet franc, and for Blanc, primarily of Petit Manseng.

The 2008 are complex and harmonious, with nuances being defined by raspberry aromas, of strawberry of wood, a wine of deep color to the purplished reflections, with full tannins, all in mouth, a fleshy wine, to open on lamb, for example.

The 2008 very powerful and very aromatic, are still closed, fleshy, rich in bouquet as out of matter, all in mouth, with very well-balanced tannins, firm and very full. It there has still Madiran cuvée René 2007, rich color as out of matter, is fleshy, intense with the nose as in mouth, the overripe fruit scents, with very well-balanced tannins, a typified and quite fleshy wine, with the nuances of leather and blackberry finally, very promising. Beautiful 2006, matured very well out of barrels, a very tasty wine, of beautiful robe the steady, with pepper and blackcurrant nose, loose thanks to silky and powerful tannins at the same time, of excellent evolution. The 2005, with a strong color, of good base tannic, rich, with the connotations characteristic of prune and violet, are all in mouth, fleshy, quite fullbodied, with these quite attractive nuances of macerated fruits and humus.
