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.

A remarkable owner who manages, with his wife Hélène, and his son Vincent, a beautiful vineyard built up patiently over the years and which now covers 34 hectares, including about 10 in Premiers Crus aand others in Chablis, Petit Chablis and Grand Cru, including a fantastic Valmur, one of the greats in Chablis. Gérard Tremblay is meticulous, hard-working and devoted to quality. This tenacious chap makes his wines using all the modern techniques in the name furthering traditional know-how. His strength is that he takes just as much care with the maturing of his Grands Crus as of his Chablis. In blind tasting, many would get quite a surprise at the quality of these wines. The Petit Chablis is rounded and flowery with very expressive primary aromas, whereas the Chablis is more fleshy, full-bodied and long with very strong character. Chablis 1er Cru "Beauroy" has great finesse and good harmony, the Chablis 1er Cru "Côte de Léchet" has a complex nose in which dried fruits dominate. Fresh, very rich aromas in the mouth. The 1er Cru "Montmain" has a fine, complex nose, very long in the mouth. The Chablis 1er Cru "Fourchaume" is the must of the winery - the nose and mouth are charmed by all those aromas of honey and white flowers, as well as the great length in the mouth. The Chablis Cru "Valmur", often splendid, has a very typical nose with a blend of power and distinction. In the mouth, it is fleshy and suave with gentle aromas of honey and good length.


Emmanuel took again the property in 2004, following his Alain father, and perpetuates the ancestral know-how transmitted of father as son since four generations. The vineyard of 20 ha is planted in small pieces on the slopes shone upon at the bottom of natural park of Vercors. This soil combines perfectly the heat of the summer and the rigor of the mountain winter. We practice a reasoned vine growing supporting the full expression of the soils. We use organic manure. Our output is control, which allows a minimal use of oenological product, for more the great respect of the wine. That gives Clairette de Die tradition, Muscat majority with 25% of Clairette, extremely pleasant, of limpid foam, with flavors of dried fruits and citrus fruits, charmer.   Crémant de Die brut, of distinguished mouth, all in aromatic smoothness, is a very persistent vintage, finely bouquetée, of creamy foam. The entirely glazed vault, makes it possible to the visitors to admire the Massif of the 3 Becs, as well as the first buttresses of Vercors, while tasting our wines: Clairette de Die and Crémant de Die.


The work of the vine and wine is a family tradition in the Rutat household: the great grandparents who were coopers and the grandparents who grew vines, passed their passion for wine down to René, the father of the present owner. Champagne René Rutat was thus born at the beginning of the 1960's as a "Propriétaire-Récoltant". It was in 1985 that Michel took over the family company with his wife, Evelyne. After several generations of vine-growers in Vertus, René Rutat Champagne is today widely recognised among the professionals of the wine sector and often wins awards for its quality. There is their Champagne Millésimé Premier Cru Blanc de blancs 2002, of a great freshness (it is this beautiful vintage which wants that), of pale robe but, delicate and persistent bubbles, with the fresh nose and of a beautiful complexity to the citrus fruits notes and white fruits, with much of powerfull and character to the palate, of a final to soft savors. Excellent Premier Cru Blanc de blancs, of color gold to the green reflections and the delicate aromas of white fruits and flowers, a Champagne which associates freshness and structure, all in mouth. Their Extra Dry is always very pleasant, marrying aromatic structure and persistence in mouth, with nuances of lemon and nut. Tasty demi-sec, of a great aromatic richness, with the robe intense, suave, is to be discovered on a roast poultry as on the desserts. The brut rosé one is all stops some, at the same time supple and fond of delicacies, with this persistent spiced key, a very nice wine, which appreciates all during the meal. The brut Grande Réserve Blanc de blancs is very well-balanced, with the grapefruit and lemon aromas mingled with acidulated apple and apricot notes, a frank vintage, very delicate.


The 28-hectare vineyard lies around the Château and faces due south. The vines are very old, some as much as 40 years old, and are planted on clay-limestone soils on hillsides looking down onto the Garonne river. The vine varieties are classical for the appellation: 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon. The estate lies next to the magnificent Romanesque church of Loupiac dating from the XIIth century. The climate here is ideal for the growth of the Botrytis Cinéréa rot, with its morning mists and sunny autumn afternoons. As soon as the rot appears, the harvesting is done by hand in the traditional way: the grapes are picked exclusively by hand in a series of selection processes which go on from October through to mid-November. The wine-making process involves all the skills accumulated over 4 generations, combined with modern techniques to produce a fine, elegant wine with a beautiful golden colour. It is unctuous and very fruity with complex aromas of acacia and toast. Smooth in the mouth with a lot of freshness. A wine which ages well and is matured for two years before being bottled. These fresh, delicate wines are a perfect aperitif. They leave a nice, fresh impression in the mouth, which is ideal if you are going to taste other wines afterwards. Perfect with foie gras, poultry, white meat, cheese and fruit desserts.


Officially appeared in 1893, it is into 1974 that Remi DELAYAT repurchased and rehabilitated this estate of 13 ha. After her disappearance, his Nicole wife, always continued this rehabilitation in the search of the quality and the respect of the soil. It is Hugues, their son today who, since 1997, continues this search in the respect of these values and these traditions, as attest our cultivation methods of them (strong body of plantation, ploughings exclusive of the grounds, fights reasoned then Bio conversion, grape harvest manual and, control sort table of the yields). You will be able to discover this Médoc 2009, which collected the rewards (gold medals with the competition of Vignerons Indépendants, of Argent to Mondial of the wine, Argent to International competition of Brussels, Bronze to International Wine Challenge), a wine marked by black fruit notes and finely spiced keys, of full mouth, with firm tannins, combining structure and melted. The 2008 is an good example of the typicity of the wines of this winegrowing, a great traditional vintage of Médoc, powerful and dense mouth, which releases from the nuances of raspberry, humus and liquorice, a steady structure, a fleshy wine, with ripe but rich tannins, of a complex final, of guard, of course. Excellent 2007, gold medal with the competition of Vignerons Indépendants and Argent to Interntional Wine Challenge, dense and powerful with the nose as in mouth, with its tasty tannins, with the cooked fruit nose (blackcurrant, bilberry), of a nice delicately spiced final.
