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. 



The Winegrowing extends on 6 ha from Juliénas, 1 ha of Saint-Amour and 5 ha of Beaujolais-Villages located on the commune of Jullié, the whole coming from type of vine Gamay black to white juice. The estate comprises 1/2 ha of Beaujolais wine-Villages white resulting from the Chardonnay type of vine on the commune of Saint-Veran in Saône-et-Loire with in parallel the development of Crémant de Bourgogne. Different wine making according to the vines and the appellations. Traditional, semi-carbonic for Juliénas, hat immersed for Saint-Amour. Francis Tête, wet cooper, manager of cellar, created the estate to then transmit it to her son Raymond, pioneer of the direct sales in bottles to the property. Since 1980, Michel (3rd generation) and Francoise developed the company and founded, in 1988, the “Domaine du Clos du Fief”. Superb Juliénas cuvée Prestige 2010 (argilo-siliceous ground), very representative of what must be a wine of this appellation, where the spices, the morello cherry and the undergrowth intermingle, a wine melted, powerful with the nose as in mouth, firm and silky tannins at the same time, of excellent evolution. Saint-Amour Les Capitans 2010 is a reference. The grapes come from a small piece to the place says Les Capitans, located on the mountain of Bessay, with an exposure south-south-east. Installed on a ground argilo-limestone, the vine of Gamay, 35 years old, is led out of goblet, with rows enherbés for a reasoned culture. A whole grape wine making, with hat immersed (the grape is maintained under its juice with a device of grid in the tank) for a long maceration makes it possible to obtain this single vintage. Juliénas 2011 is traditional and elegant as we like them, cordial, with the intense robe ruby, with this nose of blackberry and morello cherry. Remarkable Juliénas Tête de Cuvée 2006, wine making with Burgundian, de-stalking at 100% of the vintage, maceration of about ten days, with punching of the cap (manual pressing) regular in a traditional tank out of wooden, 18 months including 6 month out of barrels, of a beautiful dark garnet, with the raspberry and blackcurrant nose with notes of violet and spices, a cordial wine. Taste the Beaujolais-Villages rosé Fleur de Gamay 2011, sharp and fruity like the Beaujolais-Villages 2011, traditional and regularly succeeded. The Beaujolais-Villages blanc Fleur de Chardonnay 2011, with the notes of citrus fruits and lily, allured by a little allied acidity with a nice roundness.


Château Redortier, with 35 hectares of vines in virtually one single stretch, is particularly well placed, standing opposite the prestigious Dentelles de Montmirail. The estate is in the Côtes du Rhône Villages, Beaumes de Venise and Gigondas appellations all at the same time. The land is exceptional: the vines are planted at an altitude of 400m on south-facing hillsides which benefit from clay-limestone soils and a very dry summer season. The estate has kept its family character, with Etienne de Menthon working alongside his wife and their daughter Sabine. Château Redortier used to be a very important fortified castle which defended the principality of Orange. In 1956 Etienne de Menthon, an agronomist, restored the estate to its former condition. To respect the environment and to favour the natural character of the wine, the treatment of vine diseases is subject to reasonable methods. Yields are intentionally controlled at 30 to 35 hl/ha, resulting in quality wines. Harvesting is performed by hand so as not to alter the vines and bunches of grapes, enabling strict sorting procedures. Vinification is traditional, with the white obtained by pressing and the rosé by bleeding. For the reds, vatting varies from 8 to 10 days for the Beaumes de Venise and 15 days for the Gigondas. Pressing is light for all the wines and temperatures are controlled throughout fermentation. The reds spend two winters in vats before being bottled and the wines undergo very little physical treatment, in order to conserve all their aromas and their intrinsic quality. The wines do not mature in wood barrels, as the quality of the soils and vines is sufficient to give them a naturally woody character.


To the North-East of Carcassonne, in the central zone of Minervois, soil “Balcons of Aude”, this medieval strengthened farm is a winegrowing of only one holding of 158 ha with 58 ha of vines including 45 planted in Minervois. It is on this winegrowing with the multiple Mediterranean scents that Roland Augustin, helped of his two sons Yann and Loïc, mature with a care meticulous person of the intense, complex and expressive wines. For better understanding the specificity of each vintage of Château Fabas, it is necessary to know of it the origins, type of vines and the type of maturing. The Winegrowing is pressed on a decoration of hillocks exposed to full midday, witness of the old relief to the very strong slopes where no culture is possible, only the pines of Alep and the Mediterranean vegetation is clutched on the red grounds of the hills. The vines are spread out over two levels over a reversed relief, the high terraces with the oldest grounds and the low terraces with the youngest grounds. The grounds are argilo-limestones, in the tops, the flint levels on the terraces, and the sandstone on the slopes. Superb Minervois Serbolles rouge 2008, vinified after one day a cold maceration, before alcoholic fermentation begins, all this care gives a structured great wine, of a great complexity of aromas (musk, leather…), with these notes of smoked and spices, with tannins powerful but delicate, harmonious, of guard. Remarkable 2007, fleshy, finely spiced, full and structured, with harmonious tannins, with this mouth of blackberry and violet, délicieusement molten and powerful at the same time. Minervois Serbolles blanc 2011 (bases of white Vermentino and Grenache), all in charm, with the green reflections with aromas of nut and citrus fruits, a wine which combines elegance and powerfull, of a great persistence, where roundness and distinction join. The 2010 are finely having a nice bouquet, complex, which associates freshness and structure, with the lemon-flavoured nose, refined, all in mouth. Minervois Le Mourral 2008, is a wine fleshy, with the nose of violet and blackberry, fleshy, with prune and pepper notes. Taste also the IGP Syrah/Petit Verdot 2011, dense, all in aromas, ideal on an hare terrine, very succeeded like Sauvignon 2011, marked by its type of vine, where freshness prevails.


In charge of the First Classified High-class wines. Family winegrowing estate of 3.4 ha in Bourgogne, located in the middle of more the famous red Great wines of Cote de Nuits, the Domaine des Monts Luisants produces only red wines on 4 following finings: - Morey Saint Denis, en Pierre Virant - Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Les Monts Luisants - Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Les Genavrières - Clos de la Roche, Grand Cru distinctive their grounds stony argilo-limestone, with talk and hillside full Est. The vines have more than 45 years. Care with the vine with ageing on fair heating, until the setting: roots and zeal, enjoys to say Jean-Marc DUFOULEUR. “I like the wines more in the length that over the width” Parole of a great tenor: Mr. Hubert de Montille. For Jean-Marc DUFOULEUR, all is known as. The style is affirmed by the practice of the whole vintage, always source of merry pushed adrenalin, but the hand is soft to leave the greatest place to Terroir. The tastes are personal business. Some will be addicts with the young wines, on crunching, when others are in search for complexity. The old years being done rare, the winegrowing estate constituted a collection of worthy, pilot years of time that it made, and of the time which passes. With the winegrowing estate, the 2017 announces excellent invoice, and if the two next decades were to be the equal one of the two last, there would not be to carry felt sorry for, so much nature cherished Bourgogne. The 2016 are a very beautiful year, very near of the 2010, solar but not too, powerful but not too, never molten enough. The 2015 have very for him. Generous and silky, its power flirts with elegance. It is a large number. And that to say of the 2014 and 12, the 11 and 9… It is beautiful, they are good. It is race and there is wine. Of color crimson or tuilée, exciting flavors of violet, blackcurrant, musk, spices or of under wood, rich of tannins silky and tasty, opulent, flexible, powerful or fatty, but always been used for table, the choice of the wine, here, is nothing any more but business preferably, and of circumstance. Why not: - Morey Saint Denis, Pierre Virant 2013… on roasted Bar - Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Les Monts Luisants 2010… and meat Charolaise, Limousine ou Blonde d’Aquitaine - Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru les Genavrières 2007… against Coq with the wine - Clos de la Roche, Grand Cru 2000… on Ronde of Fromages Each one will know how, and more than all, with which, to divide its DML.


A domain on ground of rocky sands. The vineyard of 13 ha consists of 50 % Cabernet-Sauvignon, 40 % Merlot, 5 % frank Cabernet and Small 5 % Verdot. Wine making according to the traditional médocaines methods, and ageing from 12 to 18 months in oak barrels. The new owner, Thierry Kerdreux, in a real will to work in a more reasoned culture while keeping all the team of the domain which has a big experience and a knowledge of these wines. Here is an excellent Médoc 2012, in the aromas of ripe fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry) and of licorice, an enriched, fleshy wine in mouth, with nuances of fruits cooked in pit and cinnamon, ample and frank, typified and deep color, completed with, for example, A navarin of knuckle of lamb or veal flanks in mushrooms and tomato. Attractive 2011, of dark dress, it is a wine in the velvety tannins, of dense mouth, in the complex bouquet. Beautiful 2010, of beautiful purple tint, in the so rich but ripe tannins, was dominated by the blackcurrant and the raspberry, very fleshy as one needs. The 2009, of intense purple color, in the powerful and subtle nose at the same time, in the notes of ripe fruits (blackcurrant, Morello cherry) and of truffle, allies aromatic concentration and flexibility, and pursues its evolution. Excellent 2008, in the very elegant but firm tannins also, marked by its soil fat, persistent and intense in aromas as in structure, with these nuances of blackcurrant and undergrowth and licorice, a wine of supple and structured skeleton.
