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

LA BASTIDE BLANCHE


BANDOL
The restructuring of the estate by the Bronzo family was started in the early 70s. The Mourvèdre variety accounts for more than half the vines, giving the wine great aromatic depth. The 28-hectare vineyard is planted on hillsides, arranaged into parcels, on very deep gravelly, stony soils of the clay-limestone type. Vine-growing methods are very traditional, with regular ploughing, organic fertilisation and no chemical weedkiller used. The grapes are all hand-picked and put into small containers to ensure they reach the winery intact. The very fractured land produces low yields, resulting in very concentrated wines with strong personality and exceptional aromatic power. The wine is rich, combining structure and finesse, fleshy and racy in the mouth, with a long aromatic finish. It will age very well.
