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

CHATEAU MAYNE LALANDE


LISTRAC
Since more than 6 generations, the Lartigue family is attached to the ground of Listrac. It is into 1973 that Bernard LARTIGUE becomes the new master of the winegrowing estate.

A perfectionist, rigorous, demanding character of a vine grower liking work well done leads it to the permanent research of excellence but also to call itself in question each day to obtain the best potential of the soil in order to work out high-class wines, having a very long aptitude for ageing.

The 2012, particularly tasty, of beautiful color supported crimson, with the cinnamon and raspberry notes, of a great harmony, is very scented, séveux, generous and persistent.   The 2011 (50% of new barrels), is all in mouth, with dominant of roundness, closes in mouth, all in aromatic nuances (black cherry, grooves…), of very good evolution. “The year 2016, tells us Bernard Lartigue, is one year with many climatic sudden starts which required much observation of the plant to guarantee to have healthy grapes. We move towards excellence thanks to generosity of Dame Nature and with the intensive work of all the collaborators of the properties. Large a mercy!”
