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.

Founded in 1946 by René Gouron, the DOMAINE will develop with the support of his Jacky son until in the Eighties. From now on, they are the little children LAURENT and STEPHANE which vinify and market together the 28 hectares which account the family property. Classified in Appellation CHINON Contrôlée le DOMAINE GOURON is parcelled out in many pieces: argilo-limestone and argilo-siliceous, on the slopes and gravels interfered sands, in plain. This diversity of grounds made it possible to create various vintages emphasizing the expression, fruity in plain and robust on the slopes. All the year an important work is granted to the vine in order to obtain the best fruits: the requirement of one prunes short, of the enherbés grounds and of polishing direct themselves towards controlled outputs, a better concentration and the respect of our environment. Our wines are matured in the micaceous chalk cellars with ideal conditions then bottled at the property. Typified and distinguished, this Chinon La Croix Boisée blanc 2011, pure Chenin, vinified out of barrels without exogenic yeasts with room temperature, releases from the persistent floral notes, with the dry apricot flavors, a mouth rich, balanced well in acidity, of a pretty smoothness. Chinon cuvée Domaine 2012, with the raspberry notes, very scented, generous and persisting in mouth, to lead to a steaklet.   Excels 2011, with the complex and subtle nose dominated by ripe blackcurrant and the humus, with tannins present but quite silky, of color crimson. Rosé Chinon, pure Cabernet frankly resulting from bleeding, also is successful, delicate color, feels the wild strawberry, combining nervousness and roundness, of a very pretty final in mouth.


It is in 1765, in Westhalten, small village of Haut-Rhin blotti in the middle of Vallée Noble, which is born Maison Heim. Always carried by the love of the trade and the soil, the successors of Alfred Heim put themselves in search of new grounds and were installed on the slopes of Bennwihr. Heim thus became Bestheim, associating in the name of origin the contraction of the names of the villages where the company vinifies and matures its various vintages. Bestheim exploits today a splendid mosaic of soils. It became unavoidable within the Alsatian vineyard. Bestheim is a company particularly committed in the safeguarding of the environment and is invested with the daily newspaper in this step at the same time in the vineyard as within the company (reasoned fight, recycling, valorization of waste…). Bestheim produces all the range of the wines of Alsace going from Crémants to seven Alsaciens type of vines. One finds in the range not less than 6 places known as (of which Klevener de Heiligenstein) and 6 Grand crus (Rosacker, Wiebelsberg, Mambourg, Marckrain, Vorbourg and Zinnkoepflé).


In 1982, Daniel Laurent took over the family estate from his parents. His father used only a tiny part of his harvest for making his Champagne for a few friends and clients, the rest of the grapes being sold to traders. In Autumn 1982, Daniel decided to produce his own Champagne, with the assistance of his wife, and they registered their present trademark, "Champagne Laurent-Gabriel".
