CHATEAU REDORTIER


BEAUMES-DE-VENISE
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.

CHAMPAGNE PIERRE MIGNON


LE BREUIL
Pierre and Yveline Mignon direct the family winegrowing and their two children take part in the development: Celine, in charge with the commercial relations and export, Jean-Charles, person in charge of the vineyard and the wines.

CHAMPAGNE ELLNER SAS


EPERNAY
Founded at the beginning of 1900, The House Charles Ellner, is managed today by the 3rd generation whereas the 4th has already taken a very active part in it since several years. The family moved forward very fast and developed the company in a significant way, but was always very concerned about preserving the same family identity and know-how. For memory, at the beginning of the last century, Charles Emile Ellner founded the house. He was then assisted by is only son Pierre, with whom the adventure started. Pierre transmitted to his sons his passion for the vineyard and for wine. Michel more involved in the vineyard was very often standing by his father’s side building together today’s properties. He was followed by his two sons, Arnaud, the actual cellars master and Frederic, director of the vineyard. Jean-Pierre is now the President of the company. The vineyard covers a total surface of 50 hectares spread over 15 different locations providing us with a wide variety of grapes. The diversity, the richness; the smoothness of our cuvees, attest of our will to bring our Champagne to the top of the quality scale.

No malolactic fermentation. A great wine of pale golden robe, in the green reflections, the vintage offering a fine and persistent bubble, which presents a beautiful complexity mixing the notes of white flowers and lemon to finish on subtle flavors of sweet almond due to a long ageing in cellar. A nervous champagne, which reveals one finale delicate smooth and silky. The 2005, 65 % Chardonnay (Avize, Chouilly and Tauxières), 35 % Pinot noir (Rilly-la-Montagne, Sermiers and Epernay), dosage 8 g/l, very attractive, in the aromas of pear and grilled hazelnut, light yellow robe in the golden reflections, a powerful and elegant wine at the same time, everything mouth, everything in finale.

DOMAINE GERARD TREMBLAY


CHABLIS
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.

ROBERT AMPEAU


MEURSAULT
The Ampeau family have been skilled wine-growers for generations - for them, wine is a question of passion and an art. They sell only matured wines which are ready to be savoured - a sign of the respect they feel for their produce. Enchanting red wines - smooth, well-balanced, full-bodied in the mouth with lovely mellow tannins and lots of character and charm. Excellent length and aromatic complexity with notes of red fruit, spices and humus. The whites are aged to perfection with their excellent balance and strong typical character, intense, classical and very elegant. Enjoy their Meursault Perrières 82 which has aged nicely - intense, strong on character, very classical, a delicious wine which is ideal served with white meat in a cream sauce. Also the Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes 79, very rich in the mouth with a lovely blend of structure and finesse, powerful on the palate, ageing delightfully. Also try the Pommard 79, with its bouquet of ripe fruit and humus, rich and complex, excellent in the mouth with a deep colour and well-balanced tannins. Or taste the Auxey-Duresses 88, smooth and dense in the mouth, the Volnay-Santenots 76, with subtle hints of humus, blackberry and spices, very aromatic, tasty in the mouth, fine and powerful all at the same time, matured to perfection.
