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

CHAMPAGNE BOURDAIRE-GALLOIS


POUILLON
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.

DOMAINE DE TOASC


BELLET
A property of 15 ha, including 8 ha of vines and 2 ha olive-trees. Here, the wind of ground, sea and the tramontana maintain the medical condition of the vines. On the slopes where the uneven one reaches 180 m, work is often practiced manually and put rhythm into by one prunes short, a stripping and green grape harvest limiting the yield to 35 hl/ha. The grounds resulting from the alluvia of Var to tertiary are made up by the “poudinfue”, clay agglomerate, sand and rolled rollers, rich in biogenic salts. Since 2012, wines of the Domain are approved Ecocert in biological culture. Superb Bellet red 2015.70% Folle noire and 40% Grenache, high 15 months out of barrels, very typified of course by its original type of vines, wine of a full and rich mouth, of beautiful color garnet-red, with the nose of crystallized cherry and humus, perfect on a guinea fowl with the paste of olives, mashed potatoes of chick-peas or rolled of nice of pig to the basil. Very beautiful white Bellet cuvée du Père 2016, pure Rolle, vinified out of barrels with this key of allied acidity to a pleasant roundness, where intermingle with the notes of almond, ripe fruits (pear, mango) and of heather. Bellet white 2017, very majority Rolle with a suspicion of Chardonnay (5%), where intermingle with the almond notes, of ripe fruits and of heather, harmonious mouth, is a suave and dry wine at the same time. As for rosé Bellet 2017, of slightly salmon color, with the subtle connotations of small flowers and quince, with this characteristic spice point, it is quite suave finally, and asks a kitchen refined like tagliatelle the basil and pinions or an ox carpaccio.

CHATEAU LA GALIANE


MARGAUX
Château La Galiane owes its name to Galian, an English general who commanded his troops here during their occupation of Aquitaine in the 15th century. This has been a family estate for several generations and has a surface area of 5 hectares planted with 45 % Merlot, 50 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, a combination which gives that perfect, classical balance which is so typical of the Margaux appellation. The vineyard is planted on slopes with fine gravel soils. These wine-growers from father to son produce La Galiane wines with a lovely ruby-red colour and a fine bouquet, very harmonious and smooth in the mouth. The tannins are fine and elegant and the wines have good ageing capacity. Château Charmant has 5 hectares of vines which are a hundred years old and planted on fine gravel soils with lots of pebbles which are ploughed. Harvesting is done by hand and the vatting process is long in order to extract all the aromas before maturing the wine in barrels for 12 months. Château Charmant produces an aromatic wine with good colour, very complex and elegant, perfectly balanced, well-structured and supple at the same time and opening out delightfully with age.

DOMAINE FRANCOIS BERTHEAU


CHAMBOLLE-MUSIGNY
This family winegrowing was taken again by François Bertheau in 2004. It represents the fifth generation to exploit this vineyard of 6.22 ha. The vines are 45 years old on average. the maturing is done out of barrels (including 20 to new wood 30%) for one 18 months duration, the wine, not filtered, will be marketed approximately 6 months after its setting in bottles. “The 2011 were marked by one early spring, a summer not particularly beautiful, and a very beautiful back season, tells us François Bertheau. These weather conditions gave very good performances, with on the other hand a vigilance with the control of the temperatures in wine making. The quantities are, with something near, similar to 2010. Although it is still a little early, this vintage 2011 appears quite well-balanced, perhaps better than the 2010, of which it seems to be first cousin with character and much of fruit, perhaps a little more steady and more tannic. It will surely be of guard. For a vine grower it is a beautiful year as we like them.” While waiting, there is its superb Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Les Charmes 2009, scented, associating richness and smoothness, concentrated and fleshy, with tannins quite present, a sure value. Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Les Amoureuses 2008 remarkable, with tannins tasty and rich, generous, is at the same time coloured and fullbodied, with this quite fleshy and attractive mouth prevailed by the stone-fruits and cinnamon. Taste Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru 2008, which is an assembly of 4 pieces, very well-balanced, very scented (fresh ripe red small fruits, humus…), with this point of morello cherry characteristic of the appellation, a very full wine, of beautiful intensity, guard. Chambolle-Musigny 2009, with the complex nose with notes of ripe red fruits and liquorice, concentrate to the nose as in mouth.

CHATEAU LE SOULEY-SAINTE-CROIX


HAUT-MEDOC
At the 17th century, it was of good tone that a noble, notable or easy family has a winegrowing into of Bordeaux and makes there plant a vineyard. François de Chadirac creates his winegrowing with Vertheuil, it is famous for his Uranie novel and Lucidor, his son Jean, Conseiller with the marble table of Louis XV, succeeds to him after a tumultuous youth, and is withdrawn in Souley. The Castle knew a brilliant period at the XIXe century, because its planted vineyard of stocks centenaries and moussus, caused curiosity. The modern history of the Château Le Souley Sainte Croix, merges with that of the Riffaud family. In 1959 whereas the winegrowing is with the abandonment, its vineyard sold with pulling up, Denise and Paul Riffaud buy it and decide to return its gloss of antan to him, because since the XVIIe century, and the first plantation, with approximately of 1616, the winegrowing knew periods of large prosperity, but also of the moments of lapse of memory. For now 50 years the very whole Riffaud family, has devoted her time, the property incomes and especially her passion inébranlable, for first of all making reappear, then to protect the winegrowing. Paul and his Jean son replanted the vineyard on a territory of 25 ha. Today, Paul and Denise died, but the vineyard constitutes a powerful bond between all; Jean and his Marie-Jose wife manage the winegrowing, Frederic the oldest son occupies the function of Master of wine storehouse, Vincent, the junior has in load the material and the maintenance of the buildings, Jean-Baptiste the small last reigns as a Master on the vines. You will find this family osmosis in their wines. Souley strikes with your door. Open the all large one and let enter it, it will bead you of his vine and its wine. Do not deny that the wine is the product of a magic plant, known of the men since highest antiquity, containing substances with the unknown virtues. We are only vine growers, we know only to look after vine and wine. Remarkable Haut-Médoc 2010, of purple uby robe, fleshy, delicious, a wine which allies power and flexibility, of melted mouth where dominates the crystallized prune, of excellent evolution.
