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

CHAMPAGNE JEAUNAUX-ROBIN


TALUS-SAINT-PRIX
Michel Jeaunaux begins the trade of vine grower, in 1965. With this date, the grape is brought to the co-operative of the village. In 1973, it mary with Marie-Claude, and they install the first press (traditional) of the house. The first wine makings start then. Since, the fermenting room and the cellar were built. In 1999, Cyril, their son, joined them, and in 2003, a second traditional press is installed. Of 500 bottles produced at the beginning, the house endeavors from now on to vinify approximately 45000 bottles. The step remains faithful to a durable vine growing: work of the grounds, putting under grass, wine makings out of tanks but also out of barrels of oak. The wine makings are carried out out of tanks (stainless and enamel) or out of barrels of oak for three type of vines. Alcoholic fermentations start spontaneously or after sowing levurien. The malo-lactic fermentation, always carried out until now, should not become systematic more in the future to preserve more tension and of minerality on our basic wines. The vintages have patience then between 2 and 7 years in cellar. Lastly, always in the research of the minerality and the naturalness, proportionings are moderated to leave with the wine the possibility of being expressed fully. The Champagne Extra brut Les Grands Nots millésimé 2003, resulting from an assembly of heads of the vintages not filtered from Chardonnay, Pinot noir and Pinot meunier with equal shares, a vintage vinified and matured out of barrels of oak, full and is scented, with the subtle nose where citrus fruits aromas and small flowers develop, all in persistent and delicate mouth, of yellow robe gold. Excellent brut rosé de Saignée, contrary to rosé traditional from assembly, this vintage results from subtle and short maceration from the red grapes, elaborate exclusively starting from Pinot meunier and of the only vintage 2006, a Champagne all in smoothness, of delicate mouth, with the aromas of fresh fruits and pink, of a long scented final. The Champagne brut Prestige, Chardonnay majority (80%), supplemented by Pinot noir, is dense, combining smoothness and structure, of a yellow shining, with the connotations of flowers and spices.

DOMAINE ALARY

It is today Denis Alary who directs this winegrowing to prunes human, whose vine grower spirit was always the base. The property is entirely on the commune of Cairanne, with 3 different soils which allow a subtlety in the assemblies according to the vintages.

DOMAINE LAFRAN-VEYROLLES


BANDOL
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.

DOMAINE ROGER PABIOT ET SES FILS


POUILLY-FUME
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. A member of the Individual Wineries Federation.

DOMAINE DE ROSIERS


COTE-ROTIE
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.
