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

PIERRE FRICK


PINOT BLANC
In 1970, the winegrowing is converted with the biological culture, the first applications of organic-dynamie beginning in 1981. Starting from harvest 1986, the Demeter mention is obtained, and, since harvest 2002, the wine is not stopped any more with cork but with capsules crowns in Inox, to avoid the organoleptic deviations (savors and aromas) caused by the stoppers cork. Wine making without any additive, manual grape harvest, indigenous yeasts, maturing on the lees during 9 months. Much liked Gewurztraminer 2009, with these subtle connotations where intermingle the ripe white fruits, the fresh spices and flowers, of intense mouth. Excellent Pinot white Carrière 2008, intense, associating structure and smoothness, all in harmony, of persistent mouth, ideal on an bass with white butter. Riesling Bihl 2009, very delicate like this attractive Sylvaner Bergweingarten 2007, sharp, with quite typical notes of citrus fruits (grapefruit), of fruity mouth. Crémant beautiful of Alsace 2008, foam very beading and very persistent, a wine rich, tasty, where one finds nuances of lemon and honey. Taste its original vintage, the Blanc de noirs 2009, a beautiful expression of the very ripe Pinot noir vinified in white. “A manner of vinifying a Pinot noir, specifies me Jean-Pierre Frick, without correction and additives (except a little sulfur after racking). Always naturalness! Coppered yellow robe, intense and complex undergrowth aromas, liquorice, mild tobacco, yellow fruits and truffle, stops full and nervous, beautiful association with a turkey with wild mushrooms.” Superb Gewurztraminer Grand cru Eichberg Vendanges Tardives 2005, a fleshy and complex great wine, where the brioche, the flowers and honey intermingle, of a great intensity to the palate. All in consistency, Pinot gris Vendanges Tardives Grand cru Vorbourg 2008 is a great wine, with the fruity and floral notes intense, with a honey point, dissolve, of guard.

CEDRIC CHIGNARD


FLEURIE
Cédric Chignard took the responsability for this winegrowing of 8 ha since 2007 (4th generation). Her father, Michel, impassioned owner knew to transmit his values to him in order to let as well as possible express the soil according to each vintage, and mature large Fleurie as one should see some more often, that is wine where elegance is combined with a tannic presence good real. The grape harvest is manual, the traditional wine making by whole bunches, and the maturing is done out of tanks, tuns or barrels. Superb Fleurie Les Moriers 2011, which owes its secular notoriety with a privileged ground, resulting from the granite where it plunges its roots, of color crimson, with complex nuances of fruits of wood, violet and plum, very delicate but very structured, promising success. The 2010, with the intense nose where the ripe fruits (currant, strawberry) and the humus intermingle, are a fullbodied wine, with tannins present and tasty, matured very well, combining powerfull and smoothness, of guard. Fleurie cuvée Spéciale Vieilles Vignes 2010 is really remarkable, a wine of color steady cherry, with the cooked fruit aromas (strawberry, currant) and undergrowth, very well-balanced, with tannins firm and melted at the same time, with this finely spiced mouth. Beautiful 2009, of mouth intense and prevailed by blackberry and the violet, a wine combining suppleness and aromatic, harmonious and very well-balanced intensity, which agrees perfectly with a leg, but deserves to be preserved for better benefitting from its potential. Many rewards obtained and largely deserved.
