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. 



Estate created in 1960 per Pierre Lancelot, and taken again in 1996 by his/her daughter Sylvie and her son-in-law Michel Chauvet. The cellars are dug in the hillock of chalk right behind the house.

Officially appeared in 1893, it is into 1974 that Remi DELAYAT repurchased and rehabilitated this estate of 13 ha. After her disappearance, his Nicole wife, always continued this rehabilitation in the search of the quality and the respect of the soil. It is Hugues, their son today who, since 1997, continues this search in the respect of these values and these traditions, as attest our cultivation methods of them (strong body of plantation, ploughings exclusive of the grounds, fights reasoned then Bio conversion, grape harvest manual and, control sort table of the yields).

The type of vines Merlot (65%), Cabernet franc (25%) and Cabernet-Sauvignon (10%) are associated with this soil argilo-limestone and meticulous care (stripping, grapes sorted before picking off, long macerations, breeding out of barrels, of which 1/3 is renewed each year…). One gives pleasure with their Puisseguin-Saint-Émilion 2010, of beautiful color, with the nose of characteristic red small fruits (currant, strawberry), of a beautiful balance, full and rich, a quite fleshy wine as they are liked, promising.

Harmonious, very well-balanced, with fruit aromas red, spices, fleshy, persistent stops some like the 2005 at its age. Delicately timbered, he asks for the moment a structured gastronomy.” The 2008, of robe garnet-red, rich, with the intense nose, are a complex wine, of a beautiful final where the ripe black cherry and the undergrowth prevail, wine of a flattering and rich mouth at the same time. The 2007 are very successful, a well-balanced and supple wine, with melted tannins, very pleasant with this nose of violet and ripe red small fruits, which associates distinction and richness, full and fleshy, and is tasted very well.

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. 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. Superb range “Extra”, which reveals the truth of the wine in all its splendor thanks to proportioning Extra Brut, the perfect interpretation of the ancestral know-how of the house. You will like also L’Extra rosé 2007, of a pink limpid and luminous, very aromatic with notes of strawberry of wood, raspberry and wild blackberry, delicately frays with the rose and the violet, of structure sharp of a large smoothness, full and persistent stops some, splendid rosé, a beautiful expression of this beautiful vintage. There is this Gosset Celebris Vintage Extra Brut 2002, with these nuances of fruits compotes, undergrowth and of yellow peach, very harmonious, robust, is prevailed by slightly spiced notes, of a long aromatic persistence.
