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 DE FONTLADE


COTEAUX VAROIS EN PROVENCE
In our wine making we aim at being both rigorous and passionate: rigorous in terms of cultivating our vines and making our wines and passionate for our land and our products. Our vineyard has been owned by the Baronne de Montremy for over 50 years and lies on very pebbly terraces on a mix of chalk and clay in the centre of Provence. The past three years have seen very hot summers and cold winters and have enabled us to produce powerful but elegant and aromatic wines. The 2008 vintage will be less powerful but will retain its elegance. Our reds are hearty and generous; our rosés are structured but elegant with a pleasant red fruit aroma while our whites are fresh and floral with a pleasant crispness. In 2008, elegance more than the powerfull will characterize our wines. Remarkable Coteaux-Varois-en-Provence rouge cuvée de l’Hermite Maunier Vieilles Vignes 2007 (60% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 10% Cabernet), matured 8 months out of barrels of oak, with the aromas of cooked fruits and spices, rich and coloured, of beautiful garnet-red color, dense and powerful with the nose as in mouth, of excellent guard. Complex, the cuvée Saint Qvinis rouge 2006, is of deep robe, with the nose of blackberry and of smoked, with tannins present, a wine of a beautiful harmony, which continues its evolution. The cuvée Saint-Qvinis rosé 2011 is of beautiful color, well fruity with nose as in mouth, which deserves kitchen spiced, always very attractive like Côtes-de-Provence rosé Aurélia Prima 2010, assembly of Syrah and Grenache (50/50) which macerated one night before being bled and vinified cold (below 17°), which develops nuances of flowers and spices, mixing richness and suppleness, of fruity mouth.

DOMAINE FRANCOIS BERTHEAU


CHAMBOLLE-MUSIGNY
This family winegrowing was taken again by François Bertheau in 2004. It represents the fifth generation to exploit this vineyard of 6.22 ha. The vines are 45 years old on average. the maturing is done out of barrels (including 20 to new wood 30%) for one 18 months duration, the wine, not filtered, will be marketed approximately 6 months after its setting in bottles. “The 2011 were marked by one early spring, a summer not particularly beautiful, and a very beautiful back season, tells us François Bertheau. These weather conditions gave very good performances, with on the other hand a vigilance with the control of the temperatures in wine making. The quantities are, with something near, similar to 2010. Although it is still a little early, this vintage 2011 appears quite well-balanced, perhaps better than the 2010, of which it seems to be first cousin with character and much of fruit, perhaps a little more steady and more tannic. It will surely be of guard. For a vine grower it is a beautiful year as we like them.” While waiting, there is its superb Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Les Charmes 2009, scented, associating richness and smoothness, concentrated and fleshy, with tannins quite present, a sure value. Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Les Amoureuses 2008 remarkable, with tannins tasty and rich, generous, is at the same time coloured and fullbodied, with this quite fleshy and attractive mouth prevailed by the stone-fruits and cinnamon. Taste Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru 2008, which is an assembly of 4 pieces, very well-balanced, very scented (fresh ripe red small fruits, humus…), with this point of morello cherry characteristic of the appellation, a very full wine, of beautiful intensity, guard. Chambolle-Musigny 2009, with the complex nose with notes of ripe red fruits and liquorice, concentrate to the nose as in mouth.

DOMAINE DE LA RENAUDIE


TOURAINE
They have been vine-growers for three generations; the great-grandfather, Albert Denis, set up the Domaine de la Renaudie in 1928. Since 1982, Bruno Denis has been running the estate. He is a perfectionist, thoroughly committed to his profession, and since he started making the wines, they have progressed steadily in quality. His wife, Patricia Denis, is a trained oenologist, but mainly deals with sales. The age of the vines (35 years on average) and the poor, shallow soils result in wines for laying down. The winery is a complex of buildings, each with its own specific role in the various stages of winemaking. The main, recently-built vinification winery is set apart and is equipped with stainless-steel vats and all the equipment required to turn grapes into wine and to control temperatures. The storage and ageing cellar has a capacity of 120,000 bottles and is also used to prepare orders, while a former cellar, which has been turned into a client reception, can hold up to 50 people. Several wines are most successful, such as the very fruity Touraine-les-Guinetières, the Touraine-Cabernet, a colourful, rich wine with silky tannins, aromas of raspberry and underwood, and the Tradition, rich and aromatic, with a powerful, lasting nose in which red fruit and spices stand out, a round, well-structured wine which is mellow in the mouth and which has excellent ageing capacity. The Touraine white, very typical of the Sauvignon, is fresh and fruity with characteristic notes of lime and dried fruit, combining roundness and aromatic freshness in the mouth - as does the rosé, Perle de Rosée.

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.
