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 estate of 5.36 ha, including 4.60 ha of vine with which prevails of Pinot meunier. It is Robert Massonnot, the grandfather of David Bourdaire, who began the agri-wine activity thanks to some family grounds. In 1951, it founds with three other vine growers the co-operative of Pouillon and markets its first bottles in 1956. At that time, the co-operative is only one place of collection and pressing, which sells the harvest of the members in the form of musts to the traders Champagne. They are only 2 to make their Champagne, themselves in the buildings of the co-operative with their own material. The house proposes this Champagne brut cuvée Symphonie Prestige (harvest 2007 bases) a subtle and complex Champagne, which associates freshness and structure, finely acidulous, one of most attractive tasted this year, with connotations of lemon, Narcisse and toast, delicate and fruity foam, of a beautiful fullness to the palate, to uncork on a pot of burbot. Tasty Champagne brut rosé, pure Meunier, very representative of this type of vine, very attractive, of beautiful robe, with the ripe fruit nose (currant, raspberry…), with this very cordial delicately spiced key. The Millésime 2005, is very characteristic of this mature vintage, a powerful wine, of round mouth, slightly spiced as it should be, with the aromas intense, with prevailing of hazel nut and apricot, harmonious with the nose as in mouth. Beautiful Champagne Blanc de blancs, coming from the harvest 2007, of which a part is vinified out of barrels, a vintage rich but all in delicacy (proportioned with 7g/l), typified well, very scented (citrus fruits, almond…), a quite robust, harmonious wine in mouth, of excellent evolution. Taste also brut Réserve, a sharp and harmonious Champagne, marked by notes of citrus fruits and fresh flowers, round and highly-strung person at the same time, who agrees perfectly during a meal.


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 37 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.


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.


With his scientific mind and his avant-gardist temperament, Charles Schléret seeks to apply his knowledge of modern techniques to the vines grown on the excellent terroir of Turckeim. This highly experienced wine-maker puts the emphasis on state-of-the art equipment in his constant search for quality improvements. Charles Schleret is a forerunner in modern vinification with temperature control, and knows how to use this approach to preserve the intense, fresh aromas of his wines. This is how he has built the reputation of his products. His efforts have earned him many awards and medals in prestigious wine competitions. This recognition is thoroughly deserved, as is confirmed by his faithful clients who are only too keen to benefit from the excellent value for money of his prestigious Cuvées made with grapes from vines which are over 35 years old -wines with strong local character and exactly the sort of wine we like. This is the perfect example of quality obtained thanks to the constant efforts of a devoted wine-grower who respects the great traditions of Alsace wines. He has regularly featured among the winners of the great wine competitions in France and abroad: Grand Prix d'Excellence of the Union Française des Oenologues. Gold medals in the Sélections Mondiales de Montréal. Several awards at the Brussels Concours Mondial and the Paris Vinalies Internationales. Grand Prix d'honneur at the the International Wine and Arts Challenge. Gold medals at the Paris Concours Général…
