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. 



This family property is directed by Sabine Coutreau, heiress of the knowledge and the patience of five generations of wine growers. Graces to constant and constant efforts towards quality, Château David was classified “Cru Bourgeois” in 1985. Since 1996, the exploitation increased, a new wine storehouse of wine making was built and the oldest buildings were entirely renovated. That made a long time that I appreciate the wines of this winegrowing estate, and that is confirmed with this Médoc 2012, with the ripe fruit flavors (blackcurrant, blackberry) and of liquorice, a packed, fleshy in mouth, with nuances of cooked fruits with core and cinnamon, full and frank, typified wine and of major color.   Pretty 2011, of color sinks, it is a wine with velvety tannins, of dense mouth, with the complex bouquet.   Beautiful 2010, of beautiful color crimson, for ripe tannins but quite as rich, dominated by blackcurrant and raspberry, quite fleshy as one needs it.   The 2009, of color intense crimson, with the powerful and subtle nose at the same time, the notes of ripe fruits (blackcurrant, morello cherry) and of truffle, combines aromatic concentration and flexibility, and continues its evolution. Excel 2008, with very elegant but quite firm tannins also, well marked by its soil, fat and persistent, intense in flavors like of structure, with these nuances of blackcurrant, of underwood and liquorice, a wine of frame flexible and very structured, very good ageing.


A village a few kilometres from Épernay, cradle of the Oudart house since 1958. The passion of the soil engaged for a long time already, this family to preserve her vineyard by privileging the maintenance of a biodiversity, the choice of products and techniques natural. This step of “reasoned” vine growing is a true frame of mind. Member of the network Magister, the estate is committed in a durable and effective wine step: total suppression of the use of insecticide since 10 years, quite simply by maintaining balance between certain parasites being made competition and destroying themselves. The search for quality led this estate to work its wine makings in a small family co-operative, profiting from a modern and powerful production equipment, supporting the compartmental one and thus the soil. The love of champagne, perpetuated of father as son, makes it possible today to propose a range of mature champagnes, with the atypical aromas revealed by the play of the assemblies type of vines/soil. The whole explains this brut Champagne Référence, with equal shares of Pinot noir and Chardonnay (40% each one), and 20% of Pinot Meunier, outstanding commendation award to the competition of Citadelles of the wine 2011, with delicate and light foam, with prevailing of fruits ripe, very fruity, very well-balanced, harmonious stop some, very persistent, also ideal with table. Chardonnay brut Millésimé, pure Chardonnay, resulting exclusively from harvest 2004, medal of money to the competition of Chardonnay of Monde 2010, of beautiful pale, very out of fruits, very round robe but in mouth, all of structure and perfumes, with the subtle nose, full and charmer. I as liked this Extra brut, assembly 40% Pinot noir, 20% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Meunier with an extra dry proportioning to 5 G, a distinguished vintage, mixing fullness and freshness, all in smoothness, with the nose of dried fruits and lily.


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.


Éric Marey stays up with love its attractive vineyard of 10 ha. The wines are maturing in oak barrels and are followed by a laboratory during all their evolution. The wines are mainly sold with the winegrowing near faithful customers of private individuals, and the remainder is dispatched with the restoration, at cellars with wine, in France like abroad. The winegrowing proposes to you out of white wines: Aligoté, Pernand-Vergelesses, Pernand-Vergelesses Premier Cru “Sous Frétille”, et Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru. En vins rouges: Savigny-Lès-Beaune "Les Rouvrettes" Premier Cru, Bourgogne, Pernand-Vergelesses “Les Belles Filles”, Les Fichots Premier Cru et Corton Grand Cru.

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.
