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. 



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 33% Pinot noir, 33% Chardonnay and 33% of Pinot Meunier, Golden medal in the International Competition Gilbert & Gaillard 2017, 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 Millésimé, pure Chardonnay, resulting exclusively from harvest 2010, of beautiful pale robe, very out of fruits, very round 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 2 G, a distinguished vintage, mixing fullness and freshness, all in smoothness, with the nose of dried fruits and lily.


This property taken in tenant farming in 2000 and bought in 2010, is located at Fargues-de--Langon in the middle of 1st Crus Classés. Beautiful Sauternes Château Valguy, resulting from a vineyard of 4.16 ha, marked by its very majority Sémillon (85%, 10% Sauvignon and 5% Muscadelle)… The gathering is done by sort successive in order to collect grapes reached by the noble rot and entirely crystallized, the maturing is done out of barrels of oak for 24 months. The 2009 are particularly tasty, with the intense and fresh nose, where prevail the fruits, the flowers and the gingerbread, a wine which continues its beautiful evolution. Excellent Graves rouge Cailloux de Valguy 2009, 60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet-Sauvignon, manual grape harvest, with the subtle nose, with these persistent notes of smoked, ripe cherry and spices, with tannins powerful but very delicate, very full and promising. Graves blanc Cailloux de Valguy 2009 (cask fermentation of oak, maturing during 10 months out of barrels, including 25% of new, on the lees delicate with bâtonnages, 70% Sémillon, 30% Sauvignon), frankly and scented, of a beautiful promptness with a beautiful balance maturity-acidity, is a wine as they are liked, suave, where intermingle the fruits, the spices and the flowers fresh, all in mouth.


A domain on ground of rocky sands. The vineyard of 13 ha consists of 50 % Cabernet-Sauvignon, 40 % Merlot, 5 % frank Cabernet and Small 5 % Verdot. Wine making according to the traditional médocaines methods, and ageing from 12 to 18 months in oak barrels. The new owner, Thierry Kerdreux, in a real will to work in a more reasoned culture while keeping all the team of the domain which has a big experience and a knowledge of these wines. Here is an excellent Médoc 2012, in the aromas of ripe fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry) and of licorice, an enriched, fleshy wine in mouth, with nuances of fruits cooked in pit and cinnamon, ample and frank, typified and deep color, completed with, for example, A navarin of knuckle of lamb or veal flanks in mushrooms and tomato. Attractive 2011, of dark dress, it is a wine in the velvety tannins, of dense mouth, in the complex bouquet. Beautiful 2010, of beautiful purple tint, in the so rich but ripe tannins, was dominated by the blackcurrant and the raspberry, very fleshy as one needs. The 2009, of intense purple color, in the powerful and subtle nose at the same time, in the notes of ripe fruits (blackcurrant, Morello cherry) and of truffle, allies aromatic concentration and flexibility, and pursues its evolution. Excellent 2008, in the very elegant but firm tannins also, marked by its soil fat, persistent and intense in aromas as in structure, with these nuances of blackcurrant and undergrowth and licorice, a wine of supple and structured skeleton.


Château du Coing de Saint-Fiacre is located at the confluence of Sèvre and Maine. The property includes 42 ha of vines on exposed slopes of 14% full south. It is a historical property of the Nantes vineyard it existed in the Middle Ages, it was altered at the 18th century in 1756 then with 19th in 1810. The outhouses built into 1810 are of pure style Italian (known as clissonnais) with génoises and very typical windows géminées of the Nantes vineyard. Château du Coing was particularly invested in the installation of the communal vintages, in particular Monnières - Saint-Fiacre and Gorges. These wines correspond to precise specifications with a control in June of the INAO in the vines so that the yield does not exceed by 45 hl/ha. The wine is subjected to two tastings before having the possibility of putting it on the market, the wine must also to stay at least two years on its lees. in the case of Château du Coing de Saint-Fiacre 2004 and 2005, the wine stayed five years on its lees. The work of the ground and this communal method of wine making “believed” gave its noble letters to the appellation Muscadet Sèvre and Maine. The Castle innovated, in 2009 with a wine making in late grape harvest called “Audace of Coing”. The grapes are gathered the grapes in on-maturity with the hand, one obtains a sweet wine with honey savor with a residual sugar of 50 G/liter. Vintage 2008: the vineyard underwent freezing, the yields were of 30 hl/ha on average. The wines have aromas concentrated with a beautiful minerality. Vintage 2009: very floral with a beautiful balance and a length in mouth. The yield was of 50 hl/ha. The vine suffered a little from the lack of water during the summer. Very homogeneous vintage in quality for the various vintages. Vintage 2010: this vintage is one vintage exceptional, the wines are full, full with a very beautiful structure, an yield of 50 hl/ha. One of best the vintage of the decade.


Cédric Chignard took the responsability for this winegrowing of 8 ha since 2007 (4th generation). Her father, Michel, impassioned owner knew to transmit his values to him in order to let as well as possible express the soil according to each vintage, and mature large Fleurie as one should see some more often, that is wine where elegance is combined with a tannic presence good real. The grape harvest is manual, the traditional wine making by whole bunches, and the maturing is done out of tanks, tuns or barrels. Superb Fleurie Les Moriers 2011, which owes its secular notoriety with a privileged ground, resulting from the granite where it plunges its roots, of color crimson, with complex nuances of fruits of wood, violet and plum, very delicate but very structured, promising success. The 2010, with the intense nose where the ripe fruits (currant, strawberry) and the humus intermingle, are a fullbodied wine, with tannins present and tasty, matured very well, combining powerfull and smoothness, of guard. Fleurie cuvée Spéciale Vieilles Vignes 2010 is really remarkable, a wine of color steady cherry, with the cooked fruit aromas (strawberry, currant) and undergrowth, very well-balanced, with tannins firm and melted at the same time, with this finely spiced mouth. Beautiful 2009, of mouth intense and prevailed by blackberry and the violet, a wine combining suppleness and aromatic, harmonious and very well-balanced intensity, which agrees perfectly with a leg, but deserves to be preserved for better benefitting from its potential. Many rewards obtained and largely deserved.
