A l'honneur


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.

CHATEAU TOULOUZE


GRAVES DE VAYRES
The grounds of the Château Toulouze depended on a vast land unit, property of the Château de Vayres. This last built in XIIIème century with the site of a Gallo-Roman “oppidum” which prevails the Dordogne, was one of the residences of the king Henri IV. Property in its current form, 27 ha of only one holding, buildings and vineyard, corresponds to what remains of a vast domain wine and maturing of more than 70 ha, built with delicate of the XVIIIème century, following the French revolution and dismantled gradually by the play of the successions. The vineyard completely restructured in 1986, starts to express the rise to power of the expression of the soil. That gives wines to the flesh fuller, generous, fruity but with impressed elegant tannins of smoothnesses. Well-balanced and harmonious wines, that one can taste young people after a broad ventilation out of carafe, but who offer according to the vintages an excellent potential of guard, on average from 10 to 15 years. Discover this Graves de Vayres Grande cuvée 2009 (majority Merlot, 20% of Cabernets, manual and late grape harvest to seek maturity, maturing 12 months into 1/2 muids of oak, bottled 18 months after the grape harvest, soft filtration), with these notes characteristic and very persistent of currant, smoked and spices, with dense and ripe tannins at the same time, a full wine of mouth, excellent guard. Beautiful 2008, robust, quite fleshy, with currant and plum scents, fleshy, with tasty tannins, which releases in mouth of the connotations of black cherry and humus, of guard.

DOMAINE DE ROSIERS


COTE-ROTIE
The Côte-Rôtie wine-growing area covers three towns: Saint-Cyr-sur-Rhône, Ampuis and Tupin-et-Semons, on the right bank of the Rhône, on very steep granite terraces covered with a silica-limestone layer for the Côte Blonde and a clay and iron oxide layer for the Côte Brune. The climate is moderate Mediterranean, dry and hot in summer and with regular rainfall in the other seasons. There are around 200 hectares of vineyards set on terraces with 40% slopes, divided into: Côte Brune (clay, dark-coloured soil) producing very firm red wines with slow development and very good ageing potential (Vaillères, Côte Rosier, Turque, Pommière, Chevalière, Côte Boudin), and Côte Blonde (lighter soil) giving more supple wines (La Mouline, Châtillonne, Grande Plantée, Grands Cols). On this 7-hectare estate, you can try the very good Côte-Rôtie (the vintage 2007 received a silver medal with the Competition of Vins d' Ampuis), made with long vatting and a minimum of 15 months' maturing in oak barrels, with a fine deep garnet-red colour and aromas of spices, ripe red fruit and violets. A very harmonious wine for laying down, well worth waiting for.

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.

DOMAINE DU CLOS DU FIEF


JULIENAS
The Winegrowing extends on 6 ha from Juliénas, 1 ha of Saint-Amour and 5 ha of Beaujolais-Villages located on the commune of Jullié, the whole coming from type of vine Gamay black to white juice. The estate comprises 1/2 ha of Beaujolais wine-Villages white resulting from the Chardonnay type of vine on the commune of Saint-Veran in Saône-et-Loire with in parallel the development of Crémant de Bourgogne. Different wine making according to the vines and the appellations. Traditional, semi-carbonic for Juliénas, hat immersed for Saint-Amour. Francis Tête, wet cooper, manager of cellar, created the estate to then transmit it to her son Raymond, pioneer of the direct sales in bottles to the property. Since 1980, Michel (3rd generation) and Francoise developed the company and founded, in 1988, the “Domaine du Clos du Fief”. Superb Juliénas cuvée Prestige 2010 (argilo-siliceous ground), very representative of what must be a wine of this appellation, where the spices, the morello cherry and the undergrowth intermingle, a wine melted, powerful with the nose as in mouth, firm and silky tannins at the same time, of excellent evolution. Saint-Amour Les Capitans 2010 is a reference. The grapes come from a small piece to the place says Les Capitans, located on the mountain of Bessay, with an exposure south-south-east. Installed on a ground argilo-limestone, the vine of Gamay, 35 years old, is led out of goblet, with rows enherbés for a reasoned culture. A whole grape wine making, with hat immersed (the grape is maintained under its juice with a device of grid in the tank) for a long maceration makes it possible to obtain this single vintage. Juliénas 2011 is traditional and elegant as we like them, cordial, with the intense robe ruby, with this nose of blackberry and morello cherry. Remarkable Juliénas Tête de Cuvée 2006, wine making with Burgundian, de-stalking at 100% of the vintage, maceration of about ten days, with punching of the cap (manual pressing) regular in a traditional tank out of wooden, 18 months including 6 month out of barrels, of a beautiful dark garnet, with the raspberry and blackcurrant nose with notes of violet and spices, a cordial wine. Taste the Beaujolais-Villages rosé Fleur de Gamay 2011, sharp and fruity like the Beaujolais-Villages 2011, traditional and regularly succeeded. The Beaujolais-Villages blanc Fleur de Chardonnay 2011, with the notes of citrus fruits and lily, allured by a little allied acidity with a nice roundness.
