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

CHATEAU LOUPIAC-GAUDIET


LOUPIAC
The 28-hectare vineyard lies around the Château and faces due south. The vines are very old, some as much as 40 years old, and are planted on clay-limestone soils on hillsides looking down onto the Garonne river. The vine varieties are classical for the appellation: 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon. The estate lies next to the magnificent Romanesque church of Loupiac dating from the XIIth century. The climate here is ideal for the growth of the Botrytis Cinéréa rot, with its morning mists and sunny autumn afternoons. As soon as the rot appears, the harvesting is done by hand in the traditional way: the grapes are picked exclusively by hand in a series of selection processes which go on from October through to mid-November. The wine-making process involves all the skills accumulated over 4 generations, combined with modern techniques to produce a fine, elegant wine with a beautiful golden colour. It is unctuous and very fruity with complex aromas of acacia and toast. Smooth in the mouth with a lot of freshness. A wine which ages well and is matured for two years before being bottled. These fresh, delicate wines are a perfect aperitif. They leave a nice, fresh impression in the mouth, which is ideal if you are going to taste other wines afterwards. Perfect with foie gras, poultry, white meat, cheese and fruit desserts.

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.

CHATEAU HAUT-SAINT-CLAIR


PUISSEGUIN-SAINT-EMILION
These likeable owners brood their vineyard of 6 ha crashed on croups and tray of argilo-calcareous structure and whose vines are 35 years old. The type of vines Merlot (65%), Cabernet franc (25%) and Cabernet-Sauvignon (10%) are associated with this soil argilo-limestone and meticulous care (stripping, grapes sorted before picking off, long macerations, breeding out of barrels, of which 1/3 is renewed each year…). One is well at the top with their Puisseguin-Saint-Émilion 2014, a reference, very balanced, of full mouth where dominate the ripe fruits (plum, raspberry), of nice color crimson, a wine which combines flexibility and structure, to wait a little to benefit from all its potential.

The 2011 develop spiced notes, with the complex nose where dominate the ripe small fruits (blackcurrant, currant), rich and flexible at the same time, quite representative of this very pretty vintage year, perfect with a braised pigeon or a string beef. The 2008 of color garnet-red, rich, with the intense nose, is complex, of a beautiful final where the ripe black cherry and the underwoods dominate, wine of a flattering and rich mouth at the same time. The 2007 are very successful, a balanced and flexible wine, with melted tannins, very pleasant with this nose of violet and ripe red small fruits, which associates distinction and richness, full and fatty, and is tasted very well. Structure and roundness, characterize this excellent 2006, all in mouth, fine and fat, quite fleshy, a very scented wine (violet, black cherry) which continues its beautiful evolution. Taste their Moulin Saint-Clair 2015, which reveals notes of violet and blackberry, rich color, traditional, combining smoothness and structure, of very good evolution. Tasty 2014, with the nose of red small fruits, with tannins molten but quite present, a rich and very aromatic wine, of a beautiful harmony.

CHATEAU DU COING DE SAINT FIACRE


MUSCADET
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.

CHAMPAGNE ETIENNE OUDART


BRUGNY
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.
