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. 



In the family, we are vine growers of father as son and cultivate the vine with respect, since tens of years. Located in the middle of the gold triangle (Arbois, Saline-the-Bains and Poligny), our vines profit from a ground particularly favorable to the blooming of the type of vines Trousseau, Ploussard but also Savagnin and Chardonnay. We have habit to say that the wine resembles to the vine grower who vinifies them. Also, our passion remains intact and our 10 ha of vines are cultivated in fight reasoned in the respect of the ground. The grounds of red clay and argilo-sandy grounds with sandy stones allow the authentic type of vine culture. The pleasure that our wines get, is for us the best reward of our work. One sees it with this Vin Jaune 2005, manual grape harvest, pneumatic pressing, after a 20 hours washing, alcoholic fermentation engages of it even with indigenous yeasts. ? malolactic fermentation is carried out with natural bacteria. ? ageing is done under veil, out of barrel without ullaging approximately 7 years during which Savagnin will take the “yellow taste”. ? The wine is powerful with the dried fruit flavors, of silky, round mouth with an intensity scented well finally, for ageing great, to taste on a pheasant with the cream. Vin de Paille 2008 is collected at any beginning of vintage, by taking only one or two bunches per stock. ? They are transported in small cages without being packed. ? One 2nd team makes a new sorting for finally placing them on trays fitted latticework on in a barn. ? drying will last 3 to 5 months, allowing the grapes a dehydration of 70%. ? Thus, the bays concentrate out of sugar and flavors. After pressing of bays abounding in sugar, one obtains 15 to 18 must L for 100 kg of grape which then will ferment slowly, before aging out of barrels of oak during at least 2 to 3 years. Of course, that gives this harmonious wine, mature, with the white fruit flavors, with in mouth of the subtle honey notes, of gingerbread, rose and of crystallized lemon, of a great persistence, combining charms and structure.


Château de FONTCREUSE is an elegant masonry whose construction was completed in 1700. In this beginning of XVIIIe century, the residence profited from running water what was extremely rare at the time. Water came from underground sources which fed a gallery dug under the hill which provided out of water the Winegrowing and its dependences, which gave its Nom to Château “FONTCREUSE”. The property extends on 34 hectares of which 31 hectares are planted, 16 hectares for the wine White de Cassis, 9 hectares for the wine Rosé de Cassis and 6 hectares for the wine Red. It should be recalled that the color of reference for the Cassis appellation is before all Blanc; rare and single product in an area Provence accustomed to produce the Rosé one. For Blanc, the vintage 2011 is resulting mainly from Marsanne (60%), which brings delicate aromas, smoothness, the fleshy one and length in mouth, of Clairette (15%), which gives freshness as for Ugni Blanc (25%), it brings this delicate key of acidity essential to balance.

A winegrowing estate of 21 ha. These young wine growers were rewarded in 2005 by the Départemental price for Dynamique Agricole. We do not use any more the weeding chemical one in our vines, they specify, which are enherbées between the rows and are worked on the surface with the foot. Very traditional of the year, this remarkable Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Vieilles Vignes 2013, soil argilo-limestone, is a wine where the structure and the smoothness dominate, with the notes of truffle and wild strawberry, of nice color, typified, of flattering and rich at the same time, dense mouth, with ripe, for ageing tannins.   the 2012 is particularly successful in this capricious year, fleshy, with tannins quite present, harmonious, a firm and silky wine at the same time, with a flexible and persistent mouth.   the 2011 of beautiful garnet-red color, fleshy, is very balanced, with the flavors of spices, cooked red fruits and violet, with silky tannins.

In the south of Mont Brouilly, Sylvie Dufaitre-Genin, viticultrice, produced of Brouilly and Côte-de-Brouilly and cultivate with conviction her 11.60 ha of vines, type of vine Gamay black with white juice. It patiently matures its wine to obtain vintages worthy of its grandfathers vine growers, present at Odenas since 1752. The wine then takes its robe ruby and its aromas of red fruits and flowers in the cellar. The permanent attention and the passion of Sylvie Dufaitre-Genin make the remainder. “For several years, she specifies, the Crêt des Garanches has engaged in a respectful step of nature by removing the use of insecticides on its estate. In order to guarantee the good development of the vines of Gamay black to white juice which produces the wine of the winegrowing, it is the natural regulation of fauna and the local flora which fills its work. Every year, the vines, of a 40 years average of age, is gathered the grapes with the hand. Then these grapes are vinified according to the traditional method beaujolaise, which confers on Brouilly and Côte-de-Brouilly their so particular characters.” Here is a good beautiful Brouilly 2011, coming from 40 year old vines gathered the grapes manually, it is matured 7 months out of tanks, of steady color, well-balanced, scented, with blackcurrant the nose and spices, an opulent wine with silky tannins.

Taste also Brouilly 2009, production limited to 500 bottles, matured 18 months out of barrels of French (new), not filtered oak, natural degree 14,4°, a wine of steady color, fullbodied and powerful mouth, beautiful matter, with the cherry connotations, undergrowth and spices, with ample tannins, which deserves patience.


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.

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.
