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

CHAMPAGNE JEAUNAUX-ROBIN


TALUS-SAINT-PRIX
Michel Jeaunaux begins the trade of vine grower, in 1965. With this date, the grape is brought to the co-operative of the village. In 1973, it mary with Marie-Claude, and they install the first press (traditional) of the house. The first wine makings start then. Since, the fermenting room and the cellar were built. In 1999, Cyril, their son, joined them, and in 2003, a second traditional press is installed. Of 500 bottles produced at the beginning, the house endeavors from now on to vinify approximately 45000 bottles. The step remains faithful to a durable vine growing: work of the grounds, putting under grass, wine makings out of tanks but also out of barrels of oak. The wine makings are carried out out of tanks (stainless and enamel) or out of barrels of oak for three type of vines. Alcoholic fermentations start spontaneously or after sowing levurien. The malo-lactic fermentation, always carried out until now, should not become systematic more in the future to preserve more tension and of minerality on our basic wines. The vintages have patience then between 2 and 7 years in cellar. Lastly, always in the research of the minerality and the naturalness, proportionings are moderated to leave with the wine the possibility of being expressed fully. The Champagne Extra brut Les Grands Nots millésimé 2003, resulting from an assembly of heads of the vintages not filtered from Chardonnay, Pinot noir and Pinot meunier with equal shares, a vintage vinified and matured out of barrels of oak, full and is scented, with the subtle nose where citrus fruits aromas and small flowers develop, all in persistent and delicate mouth, of yellow robe gold. Excellent brut rosé de Saignée, contrary to rosé traditional from assembly, this vintage results from subtle and short maceration from the red grapes, elaborate exclusively starting from Pinot meunier and of the only vintage 2006, a Champagne all in smoothness, of delicate mouth, with the aromas of fresh fruits and pink, of a long scented final. The Champagne brut Prestige, Chardonnay majority (80%), supplemented by Pinot noir, is dense, combining smoothness and structure, of a yellow shining, with the connotations of flowers and spices.

CHATEAU LAROQUE


SAINT-EMILION Grand Cru Classé
The Château has belonged to the Beaumartin family for over forty years. This superb feudal castle of the 12th century was rebuilt under Louis XIV, thus earning it the nickname of "Petit Versailles". The vineyard covres 58 hectares of vines planted on a wonderful terroir of clay-limestone slopes on the heights of Saint-Emilion with excellent exposure to the sun. The harvesting is carried out by hand when the grapes are perfectly ripe, one plot of vines at a time. The wine is made in small vats so that each batch of grapes can be kept separate and the balance between the terroirs can be worked out to perfection. Vatting is long and closely supervised before transferring the wines into barrels for 12 months. The greatest of care is taken at each stage of the wine-making process to obtain the very best levels of quality. The wine has a lovely robe, deep colour and we can note aromas of spices and black fruit. In the mouth, the attack is powerful and full. This is a most elegant wine with ripe, fine tannins, a long finish and excellent ageing potential.

DOMAINE DU CLOS DU FIEF


JULIENAS
The Winegrowing extends on 6 ha from Juliénas, 1 ha of Saint-Amour and 5 ha of Beaujolais-Villages located on the commune of Jullié, the whole coming from type of vine Gamay black to white juice. The estate comprises 1/2 ha of Beaujolais wine-Villages white resulting from the Chardonnay type of vine on the commune of Saint-Veran in Saône-et-Loire with in parallel the development of Crémant de Bourgogne. Different wine making according to the vines and the appellations. Traditional, semi-carbonic for Juliénas, hat immersed for Saint-Amour. Francis Tête, wet cooper, manager of cellar, created the estate to then transmit it to her son Raymond, pioneer of the direct sales in bottles to the property. Since 1980, Michel (3rd generation) and Francoise developed the company and founded, in 1988, the “Domaine du Clos du Fief”. Superb Juliénas cuvée Prestige 2010 (argilo-siliceous ground), very representative of what must be a wine of this appellation, where the spices, the morello cherry and the undergrowth intermingle, a wine melted, powerful with the nose as in mouth, firm and silky tannins at the same time, of excellent evolution. Saint-Amour Les Capitans 2010 is a reference. The grapes come from a small piece to the place says Les Capitans, located on the mountain of Bessay, with an exposure south-south-east. Installed on a ground argilo-limestone, the vine of Gamay, 35 years old, is led out of goblet, with rows enherbés for a reasoned culture. A whole grape wine making, with hat immersed (the grape is maintained under its juice with a device of grid in the tank) for a long maceration makes it possible to obtain this single vintage. Juliénas 2011 is traditional and elegant as we like them, cordial, with the intense robe ruby, with this nose of blackberry and morello cherry. Remarkable Juliénas Tête de Cuvée 2006, wine making with Burgundian, de-stalking at 100% of the vintage, maceration of about ten days, with punching of the cap (manual pressing) regular in a traditional tank out of wooden, 18 months including 6 month out of barrels, of a beautiful dark garnet, with the raspberry and blackcurrant nose with notes of violet and spices, a cordial wine. Taste the Beaujolais-Villages rosé Fleur de Gamay 2011, sharp and fruity like the Beaujolais-Villages 2011, traditional and regularly succeeded. The Beaujolais-Villages blanc Fleur de Chardonnay 2011, with the notes of citrus fruits and lily, allured by a little allied acidity with a nice roundness.
