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. 



Florent GUINJARD is a child of Bordeaux. Fact. With his strong passion for wine, it is his heartfelt wish to share it with the greatest amount of people possible. More than anything, he likes to discover the amazing diversity of the wines produced at his estate. In charge of the winery, which has belonged to his family since 1880, he carries on the family tradition while continuing to progress his wine making techniques year after year. And with the advice from best winemakers in Bordeaux he offers a top quality wine at an accessible price. His passion: to produce fruity wines, fine wines, and far from oaky. His trademark: fruit. Fully bodied, typical of the appellation, his Lalande-of-Pomerol cuvée Reine 2014, developed aromas of macerated fruit and spices, a beautiful garnet-red color, dense on the nose like in the mouth, combining fineness and structure, with tannins both rich and silky, an excellent evolution. The beautiful 2012, with a stunning ruby color, a very harmonious wine, with the nose of raspberry and violet and a note of spices, fleshy in mouth. The 2011, full and rich on the nose and mouth, with a beautiful balance; fat, and as the tannins melt flavors of morrello cherries and hummus marry, a very pretty wine, dense, perfect with lamb. Superb 2010, with notes of ripe red fruits (black currant) and sweet spices (cinnamon); quite fleshy with great intensity, delicious and powerful tannins at the same time. The 2009 is a classic vintage, with prolonged color, balanced, perfumed, with firm tannins, a complex nose of black currant and spices, combine for roundness and structure.


This family winegrowing was taken again by François Bertheau in 2004. It represents the fifth generation to exploit this vineyard of 6.22 ha. The vines are 45 years old on average. the maturing is done out of barrels (including 20 to new wood 30%) for one 18 months duration, the wine, not filtered, will be marketed approximately 6 months after its setting in bottles. “The 2011 were marked by one early spring, a summer not particularly beautiful, and a very beautiful back season, tells us François Bertheau. These weather conditions gave very good performances, with on the other hand a vigilance with the control of the temperatures in wine making. The quantities are, with something near, similar to 2010. Although it is still a little early, this vintage 2011 appears quite well-balanced, perhaps better than the 2010, of which it seems to be first cousin with character and much of fruit, perhaps a little more steady and more tannic. It will surely be of guard. For a vine grower it is a beautiful year as we like them.” While waiting, there is its superb Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Les Charmes 2009, scented, associating richness and smoothness, concentrated and fleshy, with tannins quite present, a sure value. Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Les Amoureuses 2008 remarkable, with tannins tasty and rich, generous, is at the same time coloured and fullbodied, with this quite fleshy and attractive mouth prevailed by the stone-fruits and cinnamon. Taste Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru 2008, which is an assembly of 4 pieces, very well-balanced, very scented (fresh ripe red small fruits, humus…), with this point of morello cherry characteristic of the appellation, a very full wine, of beautiful intensity, guard. Chambolle-Musigny 2009, with the complex nose with notes of ripe red fruits and liquorice, concentrate to the nose as in mouth.


Since more than 6 generations, the Lartigue family is attached to the ground of Listrac. It is into 1973 that Bernard LARTIGUE becomes the new master of the winegrowing estate. In truth médocain in the line of its ancestors, and deeply attached to the true values médocaines, it is with passion that it will create the properties Château Mayne Lalande (Listrac), Château Myon of Enclos (Moulis) like Les Cinq SENS of Château Mayne Lalande, its house of hosts. A perfectionist, rigorous, demanding character of a vine grower liking work well done leads it to the permanent research of excellence but also to call itself in question each day to obtain the best potential of the soil in order to work out high-class wines, having a very long aptitude for ageing. Its Listrac Médoc 2014, 60% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Cabernet franc, 5% Petit Verdot, extremely well high out of barrels (30% of new barrels), is rich in bouquet as out of matter, with balanced tannins, complete, elegant, all in mouth, with the nuances of blackcurrant, truffle and humus.   The 2013   is very successful, elegant, with rich and velvety tannins at the same time, all in aromatic smoothness (leather, currant…), a wine of garnet-red color constant, quite vigorous, to envisage with a veal chop with breadcrumbs to the Milanese or skewers of lamb. The 2012, particularly tasty, of beautiful color supported crimson, with the cinnamon and raspberry notes, of a great harmony, is very scented, séveux, generous and persistent.   The 2011 (50% of new barrels), is all in mouth, with dominant of roundness, closes in mouth, all in aromatic nuances (black cherry, grooves…), of very good evolution. “The year 2016, tells us Bernard Lartigue, is one year with many climatic sudden starts which required much observation of the plant to guarantee to have healthy grapes. We move towards excellence thanks to generosity of Dame Nature and with the intensive work of all the collaborators of the properties. Large a mercy!”

A family estate of 21 hectares, including some parcels of vines of more than 80 years old, run by two sons, Gérard and Bernard, who combine traditional practices with the modern techniques they have learned in legendary wine-growing areas: Beaune, Macon and Bordeaux. The estate is planted on the best hillsides overlooking the Loire, with very representative soils of the region: hard limestone, flinty clay, sandy terraces and Kimmeridgian marl, with each type of soil contributing its own qualities and creating a wine which has very particular characteristics on a terroir which does not. Their Pouilly-Fumé Cuvée Silex is quite superb, combining complexity and finesse, with a subtle nose of notes of honey, flowers and spices. The mouth is very marked by the soils, giving it a mineral taste and great freshness. It is a racy, very well-balanced, powerful, ample wine with very good development. The Pouilly-Fumé Coteau des Girarmes is remarkable, with notes of fresh fruit and lime-tree, a fleshy, aromatic wine which is ample, fruity and lasting in the mouth.
