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 GOURON


CHINON
Founded in 1946 by René Gouron, the DOMAINE will develop with the support of his Jacky son until in the Eighties. From now on, they are the little children LAURENT and STEPHANE which vinify and market together the 28 hectares which account the family property. Classified in Appellation CHINON Contrôlée le DOMAINE GOURON is parcelled out in many pieces: argilo-limestone and argilo-siliceous, on the slopes and gravels interfered sands, in plain. This diversity of grounds made it possible to create various vintages emphasizing the expression, fruity in plain and robust on the slopes. All the year an important work is granted to the vine in order to obtain the best fruits: the requirement of one prunes short, of the enherbés grounds and of polishing direct themselves towards controlled outputs, a better concentration and the respect of our environment. Our wines are matured in the micaceous chalk cellars with ideal conditions then bottled at the property. Typified and distinguished, this Chinon La Croix Boisée blanc 2011, pure Chenin, vinified out of barrels without exogenic yeasts with room temperature, releases from the persistent floral notes, with the dry apricot flavors, a mouth rich, balanced well in acidity, of a pretty smoothness. Chinon cuvée Domaine 2012, with the raspberry notes, very scented, generous and persisting in mouth, to lead to a steaklet.   Excels 2011, with the complex and subtle nose dominated by ripe blackcurrant and the humus, with tannins present but quite silky, of color crimson. Rosé Chinon, pure Cabernet frankly resulting from bleeding, also is successful, delicate color, feels the wild strawberry, combining nervousness and roundness, of a very pretty final in mouth.

CLOS SAINT-PIERRE


CHATEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE
True rebirth for this vineyard of 4.5 ha since its recovery by Carole and Pierre Perveyrie. The winegrowing is in third organic year of reconversion. All is implemented to exploit the potential of the soils, in the respect of the tradition vigneronne and the small surface of the vineyard allows an artisanal and artistic approach. The work of the ground and the contribution of their own fertilizer of horse have for objective to make go down the roots of vines to get the energy and the minéralité of the ground, while favoring the subterranean microbial life as well as the ecosystems. The “papale cross” became the emblem of the Clos Saint-Pierre, symbol of an art of vine and an art of life. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape cuvée Urbi 2010, equal shares of Grenache and Syrah (40% each one) with 20% of Mourvèdre, intense color as in aromas, which smells of good the ripe fruits and spices, with this point réglissée with the palate, a wine with quite firm and silky tannins at the same time, of guard, obviously. The 2009 of intense color, are scented (blackcurrant, pepper), a wine rich, powerful in mouth, with tannins present and tasty at the same time, of a nice persistent final, slightly spiced, a typified wine, of generous mouth, excellent evolution.

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.

CHATEAU CANTENAC


SAINT-EMILION Grand Cru
Nicole Roskam-Brunot, after studies of right and regional saving at the university in Bordeaux, decided to devote herself entirely to her vineyard and to take the care most attentive with the wine making and the soil by taking care that the ground has all trace elements necessary to its prosperity. Today, Nicole Roskam-Brunot is helped of her sons. Frans deals of the technical part and part of marketing. It also manages in Haut-Médoc the Château La Lauzette Declercq (a Cru Bourgeois) and Johan deals of the marketing and management of Château Cantenac. “It is one period hinge where I carry out the transfer of power with my sons. I do not forget Frederic who even if he does not work on the property, remains an enthusiastic support. Thus everyone feels implied!” The 15 hectares extend in the prolongation from the slope saint-émilionnais, prevailing the valley of the Dordogne. He is composed of 80% from black Merlot, 15% of Cabernet-franc and 5% of Cabernet-Sauvignon. The gravel-sand and argillaceous ground allows an excellent maturation of the grape. The wine is very elegant, marvelously having a nice bouquet and fruity, a beautiful complexity and length in mouth. Since 2000, they also propose you the vintage “Sélection Madame”, a nice selection of Merlot, a wine charmer and very fruity. The œnotourism takes an increasingly significant part with traditional visit-tastings or personalized lunches. And the charter “Vignobles and wine storehouses in Bordelais” came to validate the quality of our reception. There is also Les Open doors the first weekend of May, in concert-tasting and May, which is always the occasion to present our vineyard with an event cultural and ludic, within the framework of "Grandes Heures de Saint-Emilion" we organize a concert tasting in our wine storehouses at the end of the year.

DOMAINE DE LAUBERTRIE


BORDEAUX
Family property since the XVI ème century. Auberterie is a formation of the Early middle ages; the Pontallier family appears there in the texts since the delicate one of the XVI ème century. Old stronghold of Baronnie of Rivière in Duché de Fronsac, it joined Cubzagais starting from the French revolution.

The Winegrowing of Laubertrie counts 15 hectares of vines, located on a plate argilo-limestone. The culture is traditional there, the wines are elaborate in our wine storehouses, in an artisanal way, while trying to respect the characters of the soil and of each vintage. The work of the ground privileges the mechanical processes and the natural putting under grass. The grape harvest is done manually. The produced wines are Bordeaux rouge, Bordeaux blanc and Bordeaux rosé and also Crémant de Bordeaux. The last vintages are characterized by an exceptional climatology. The wines powerful, fullbodied, are very marked by the fruit. Always at the top of its appellation with this Bordeaux rouge 2010, very well-balanced, with the nose of crystallized cherry and humus, very elegant structure, all in aromatic nuances, with a strong color, of excellent guard. The 2009, with the scents of violet and humus, with fleshy mouth, a coloured and dense wine, associates structure and roundness, with rich tannins, of garnet-red color. The Bordeaux blanc is of robe yellow pale, floral, harmonious, a wine which feels good apple and the hawthorn, of very good mouth. Nice Crémant de Bordeaux, with full and floral foam. Perfect for a halt in the vineyard, a list is available within the framework of the Gîtes de France (Bacchus lists).
