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

Managed by the Duveau family for several generations, the vineyard of Domaine de la Guilloterie today covers 50 hectares.

CLOS TRIMOULET


SAINT-EMILION Grand Cru
Located to the north of Saint-Emilion, "Clos Trimoulet" is a family estate on which the ancestral skills have been handed down over five generations now. Guy Appollot and his two sons, Alain et Joël, have managed to preseve this heritage, whilst combining it with the most modern of techniques. The estate is divided into several plots of vines with clay and sandy soils which give the wine structure, longevity and finesse. The grapes are picked when they are perfectly ripe and undergo a long vatting process which extracts as many tannins as possible. The result is that "Clos Trimoulet" is an excellent wine for laying down. All the production is bottled on the estate after 18 months of maturing in oak barrels. Discover Saint-Émilion GC 2009, silver medal in Challenge international of the wine 2011, with the red fruit scents, of leather and undergrowth, full taste in mouth, powerful, tasty, rich color as out of structure, of guard.

The 2007, of molten and scented mouth, are quite traditional, all in roundness, of intense color ruby, with the nose marked by currant and the undergrowth, with round tannins, associating richness and harmony, fullbodied and spiced as it is needed. “The 2007 are one vintage miraculous, explain Alain Appollot, nature was generous with us. Thanks to our work upstream, with the care which we had taken to the vine during all of summer, the grapes were very nice, the analyzes were very good besides, surprising even, revealing pH completely correct. That gives very fruity wines, of a beautiful balance, rather traditional wines finally. For the maturing, we did not use too much of new wood, we do not make a point of masking the wines. I respect the vintage and his characteristics, I do not seek to gum them but on the contrary to underline the best.”
