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.

Authenticity, respect of Tradition, exceptional terroir... There, in the heart of Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation, Baron Pierre Le Roy de Boiseaumarié has always been the reference. His descendants are strongly committed to keep alive such an heritage, in producing great and elegant wines. Château Fortia produces red as well white wines. Whites wines are usually blends of three varieties : Clairette (60%), Roussane (30%) and white Grenache (10%). The colour is a lovely gold pale tinged with green. It exhibits a delicate aroma of white flowers and honeysuckle. For the red wines Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre are blended in the way to amplify their strenghts. Usually Grenache is dominant, but biends can vary according to the quality of the grapes. Château Fortia’s red wines have a dense and deep red/purple-tinged colour. They are full-bodied, dense, stuctured. The nose offers up scents of plum, black and red berries, delicately spicy, with persistent flavour on the palate and long finish.


The Côte-Rôtie wine-growing area covers three towns: Saint-Cyr-sur-Rhône, Ampuis and Tupin-et-Semons, on the right bank of the Rhône, on very steep granite terraces covered with a silica-limestone layer for the Côte Blonde and a clay and iron oxide layer for the Côte Brune. The climate is moderate Mediterranean, dry and hot in summer and with regular rainfall in the other seasons. There are around 200 hectares of vineyards set on terraces with 40% slopes, divided into: Côte Brune (clay, dark-coloured soil) producing very firm red wines with slow development and very good ageing potential (Vaillères, Côte Rosier, Turque, Pommière, Chevalière, Côte Boudin), and Côte Blonde (lighter soil) giving more supple wines (La Mouline, Châtillonne, Grande Plantée, Grands Cols). On this 7-hectare estate, you can try the very good Côte-Rôtie (the vintage 2007 received a silver medal with the Competition of Vins d' Ampuis), made with long vatting and a minimum of 15 months' maturing in oak barrels, with a fine deep garnet-red colour and aromas of spices, ripe red fruit and violets. A very harmonious wine for laying down, well worth waiting for.


A winegrowing estate of 21 ha. These young wine growers were rewarded in 2005 by the Départemental price for Dynamique Agricole. We do not use any more the weeding chemical one in our vines, they specify, which are enherbées between the rows and are worked on the surface with the foot. Very traditional of the year, this remarkable Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Vieilles Vignes 2013, soil argilo-limestone, is a wine where the structure and the smoothness dominate, with the notes of truffle and wild strawberry, of nice color, typified, of flattering and rich at the same time, dense mouth, with ripe, for ageing tannins.   the 2012 is particularly successful in this capricious year, fleshy, with tannins quite present, harmonious, a firm and silky wine at the same time, with a flexible and persistent mouth.   the 2011 of beautiful garnet-red color, fleshy, is very balanced, with the flavors of spices, cooked red fruits and violet, with silky tannins. Their other Saint-Nicolas-in-Bourgueil Les Graviers 2013, elaborate on sand and flint soils, is rich color as out of matter, with the subtle nose of stone-fruits, all in mouth, of garnet-red color, finely spiced.   Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil rosé 2013, rather rare, is also a success, with this nose of peony, frankly and fond of delicacies. Excel Bourgueil Leroy de Restigné 2013, marked by its micaceous chalk ground, generous, with nuances quite characteristic of ripe red fruits (cherry, wild strawberry).   free Reception for the camp-site-drivers adhering to France Passion or others.  


An estate with a superb terroir. The grapes are hand-picked, not destemmed, and crushed gently before going into fermentation vats for 15 to 21 days with temperature control. Next, the wine is matured in large oak barrels for 18 to 24 month. This results in a fine red wine with a powerful nose combining notes of spice and red fruit. It is ample and solid, rich in colour and structure, with very well-balanced tanins and good ageing potential. The Bandol white, made with the Clairette and Ugni blanc varieties, is just as flavoursome, releasing intense floral notes of heather. It goes ideally with grilled fish. The Bandol rosé, combining finesse and structure in the mouth, has notes of flowers, a fine, intense colour, great elegance and a very long finish on the palate. Remarkable value for money, limited quantities available, older vintages possible.


Property created in 1910 by the grandfather. Alain Michaud represents the third generation of vine growers, assisted soon by 4th with Dorian. The winegrowing counts 13 ha including 9 in Brouilly appellation, made up for 70% by vines of more than 50 years. Here, harvest is done with maximum maturity, after a first estimate at the time of the flower of vine (90 days of maturation), the diagnosis is refined a few days before harvest in order to wait the ideal moment. Harvest is done manually by merry and dynamic team of students of all horizons (girls and boys). A relatively long fermenting makes it possible to work out vintages with a good length in mouth and tannins quite present, in order to allow Brouilly and Morgon to draw from the grape the maximum of matters for a marvellous behavior in bottles. They are wines as Alain Michaud likes them! Remarkable Brouilly 2011, coloured, typified, with the complex aromas where the plum and the undergrowth prevail, with firm and silky tannins at the same time, of fullbodied and spiced mouth. Very beautiful 2010, gold medal with International competition of the wines of Lyon 2011, cordial, of a great aromatic richness where the violet and the blackcurrant prevail, with full but molten tannins, of excellent evolution. Superb Morgon 2011 (2.50 ha, 45 years old vines on the slopes), faithful to itself, scented, typified, fleshy and robust, with connotations of strawberry of wood and spices, all in mouth. where a nice final spiced with the palate rosé Beaujolais 2010 is detected is a success, pink brilliant robe clearly, interferes freshness and structure, a wine all in mouth, with subtle and persistent aromas where prevail the fresh fruits. Taste “Gamaysienne”, a semi-sparkling red light with alcohol low level, very fruity, which they work out themselves in their wine storehouse, fruit of a work meticulous person, taken of foam made out of bottles with a traditional discharging.
