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.

Family continuity precedes here. Today, Jean-Pierre Cointreau, in addition president of the National union of the liquor producers, take up his duties within the various entities of family Groupe and intend to undertake a perennial development of these two companies, Champagne Gosset and Cognac Frapin. For the history, the Gosset Champagne, oldest Wine House in Champagne: Ay 1584, was acquired by the family group Renaud-Cointreau (Frapin Winegrowing, in Cognac) in 1993. Side anecdote, let us stress that the traditional practice of stopping cork and fastening is maintained on certain large bottles, during ageing on slats. The “Gosset style” is thus specific to an art of living which, for more than 4 centuries, has been transmitted from generation to generation, combining a solid good sense with the elegance of the heart and spirit. It is a style resulting from an exceptional friable limestone soil supporting the optimal development of the vine and from a know-how to no one another similar. Jean-Pierre Mareigner, cellar master with the same production line team since years, thus perennializes the know-how and the style of Gosset. Dynamic house, resolutely turned towards the future, because, after having acquired vines in 100% Grand cru, the surface of production of Gosset Champagne extended by repurchasing a ground being next to the traditional site. Creation, in 1995, of the prestige cuvée Gosset Celebris will have been the point of organ of this will to improve the spectacular quality of way. Regarded as one returned with the history and the various generations of the Gosset family and composed exclusively of Grand crus of Chardonnay of the Côte des Blancs and Pinot noir of the Montagne de Reims, and the Grande vallée de la Marne (Aÿ), this vintage is the floret of the house.

Château de FONTCREUSE is an elegant masonry whose construction was completed in 1700. In this beginning of XVIIIe century, the residence profited from running water what was extremely rare at the time. Water came from underground sources which fed a gallery dug under the hill which provided out of water the Winegrowing and its dependences, which gave its Nom to Château “FONTCREUSE”. The property extends on 34 hectares of which 31 hectares are planted, 16 hectares for the wine White de Cassis, 9 hectares for the wine Rosé de Cassis and 6 hectares for the wine Red.
