Monsieur et Mademoiselle

The range "Fifi and Marcel" was created by the inhabitants of the famous Château Fonbadet to offer some of the most classic grape varieties in France at an affordable price while keeping the quality in the foreground. The regions designated for this project are Côtes de Gascogne for white wines and Languedoc for red wines. An appropriate research of the soil and the climate of each place allows to create fruity and mineral white wines with a lot of freshness and for red wines of a beautiful concentration and at the same time seductive, sensual and tasty. The experience acquired over the years by this Château Bordelais now applies to these areas with high potential, where mass production was mainly done before. The importance is to restore these classic grape varieties in the quality they deserve. Moreover this French identity is emphasized by the frivolous character of the visuals on the bottles.

Domaine Grand-Chemin

The Floutier family has managed the Domaine Grand Chemin for more than 300 years or 5 generations. Father, Jean-Marc and his 2 sons, Frédéric and Emmanuel, can let themselves go of renewal and experimental innovations in a region like the Cevennes. More than 50 different grapes are therefore allowed in the Pays d'Oc appellation, which means that there is no other wine region in France where you can display your own input and ingenuity. The legislation here is much looser than in the rest of France and allows flexible handling of grape varieties and grape combinations. In addition, the soil is also unusually versatile and home to many grapes. The Mediterranean climate and the immediate vicinity of the mountains (and the associated cooling) also offer the grapes ample opportunity to reach full ripening slowly and ideally. Grand Chemin guarantees an extensive, surprising and above all delicious range of wines with sometimes unexpected but delicious grape combinations. They also make wines under 3 different appellations: Pays d'Oc, Vins des Cevennes and Duché d'Uzés. This last small appellation is located to the east of the domain and includes 300 ha of vineyards around the town of Uzés, which is an extension of the Rhone valley. Cabernet Sauvignon with Pinot Noir…? Bring it on!

Château Planères

The winery can look back on 4 generations of winegrowers and is a family collaboration between the Jaubert and Nourry families. It is located on a stony plateau that dominates the village of Saint-Jean-Lasseille. Due to the rough conditions, the vine has to work hard here to reach full maturity. The poor sandy soils with many boulders and limited limestone oblige it to dig very deep with its roots to ensure its food supply. This means that the very old grapevines can also provide themselves with water in times of drought and thus ensure a constant and balanced ripening of the grapes. Located between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean, the climate here can also be very harsh. The constant play of winds and temperature fluctuations results in wines that display an incredible refinement, concentration, structure and balance. All Planères wines are therefore individual expressions of all these conditions together, with each vintage also requiring its own approach. Don't expect a bombastic or stewed jam style here, but delicate, mineral and terroir bound gems with a lot of personality that will undoubtedly make the heart of the true wine lover beat faster.

Domaine Ancely

In 1970, the parents of Bernard Ancely founded the domain. Located at the foot of the "Montagne Noire" Ancely enjoys the gifted terroir of dry, rocky soils with a high chalk content. The vineyards are perfect South, South West oriented. As a child, Bernard already found it a privilege to work in the vineyards. Not helping was a punishment ... just a little different than other children at that age. Bernard knows every vine on his vineyard and knows what they need. After he took over the winery of his parents he recovered an old and neglected parcel and restored it. He made it the jewel of the estate and called it "Les Oubliées", the forgotten vines, which produces a wine for which each wine lover will be respectful. But actually, this applies to all his wines: excellent result of hard work combined with know-how and a reflection of the wild nature that characterizes this beautiful region!

Florie

Florie is a brand of Les Vignerons du Roy René. This winery, founded in 1922, was named after one of the most beloved kings of France. King René lived close to the common people and was known as a generous and good man who like to share his time with the average man, participated in parties and tournaments and thus when one of the few kings conquered a place in the heart of the Provencal people. The winery uses the strictest standards of the region and all vineyards must obtain a certificate from the Chamber of Agriculture that guarantees respectful and environmentally friendly viticulture (culture raisonnée). For example, they often apply stricter standards than many individual winegrowers, and several of their wines are voted the best in the region year after year. The vineyards are also subdivided according to location, soil and quality and thus guarantee that a maximum level per wine can also be achieved in the bottle and that each bottle can be traced up to the vineyard. They also link a more than fair price to their different wines which absolutely cannot be said of some so-called "big" names in Provence and some film stars settled there.

Over the years, other vineyards were bought on the appellations of Ventoux, Cairanne, Gigondas and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Although they do not have an official bio-certificate, they work according to the same techniques and try to limit other interventions to a minimum. Expect delicious, clean and tasty styles that will convince you with a pleasant price.

Domaine Olga Raffault

Located between the Loire and the Vienne, the vineyards of Olga Raffault are situated. Olga was running the family domain together with her husband when her husband died suddenly in the fantastic 1947 vintage. With the help of Ernest Zeinninger, a German soldier who was taken prisoner of war at the end of the war but who was released under the protection of the Raffault family, a top wine was finally realized that year. Having never understood the war, he later bonded with the domain and the Raffault family, resulting in a close friendship that would last. Later her son took over the domain and today it is granddaughter Sylvie Raffault who, with her husband and son, honors the legacy of Olga. The necessary modernizations and new techniques were implemented, but the style and character that Olga had in mind were retained. The wine and vineyards are fully organically labeled and are made and maintained with the greatest care and respect for the environment and climate.

Pinon Damien

Damien and Ingrid Pinon are both one team as well as winemakers as in daily life. Among them, the domain was completely modernized and given a contemporary style. The vineyards are 100% Chenin Blanc planted for both foam and still wines and have been organically farmed for over 10 years. This includes avoiding chemical fertilizers and sprays, plowing natural vegetation between the rows to promote the balance of the local flora and fauna, etc. However, this organic method has never been endorsed with a certified label. Since 2020, work has also been done on this and an official certificate is pending. One of the great assets of Vouvray is the rather unique subsoil of a specific type of limestone and millennia-old remains of crustaceans called Tuffeau. This geological layer dates back to Turoon, so named because this geological timeline is most visible near the city of Tours. It guarantees one of the best expressions of Chenin anywhere in the world. The beautiful cellar of the domain, where the wines ferment and mature, was completely hewn from this lime layer.

Antoine de la Farge

Antoine's grandfather, Gerard Clément, was one of the most respected winemakers in the region and one of the founders of the 'Menetou-Salon' appellation. He is still present on the domain and for Antoine he was and still is his great inspiration and example. He started his career in a wine shop and later became a wine buyer for one of France's largest wine merchants. Here he was given the opportunity to expand his knowledge enormously and gain international experience (ex. in Australia). After 12 years of experience, he returned to the domain in 2012 to put all that experience into practice. As a winemaker, Antoine feels like a conductor who transforms the soil into music. Every wine must be a natural reflection of its soil and requires sustainable agriculture to achieve this. The winegrower is the cement between the grape variety and the final wine. He does not want to manipulate the wine, but only to accompany it gently. That is why all grapes are picked by hand, only gravity is used and no yeasts are added to get the fermentation going. His wines therefore constantly win prizes!

Domaine Seguin

The history of this authentic wine estate dates back to the 19th century when Berthe Roumier owned 1.5 hectares of vineyard in Berthiers. Together with her husband, Ernest Seguin, they bought some more vineyards in Bouchot. For example, a variety of terroirs were obtained over the years, including the three most important: lime (fruit), the famous Kimmeridge soils (aromatic strength) and Silex (minerality). Through a combination, they are able to produce complex and refined Pouilly Fumé's that have become almost the trademark of the domain. The belief is that the wine is made in the vineyard. Protecting the local ecosystem is a top priority. They also work according to the "Lutte Raissonée" which guarantees the most natural possible approach to the wine process and avoids the loss of the natural character of the vineyard. The basement is also located on 3 levels to work with gravity as much as possible and to avoid the use of pumps. The current winemaker Philippe Seguin is a real perfectionist and skilled in New Zealand, Burgundy, Bordeaux and the Rhône before joining and now also succeeding his father. His accompanying philosophy is "Wealth in Diversity". Each of his wines is an unmissable example of this! Still one big misunderstanding from the world help. The famous "Fumé" does not refer to flint or smoky characteristics of the wine but to the typical gray haze that specifically appears there on the Sauvignon grape with optimal maturity! ... or maybe on the haze that appears after consuming some glasses of this Divine liquid.

Domaine Gadais Père et Fils

For 5 generations, the Gadais family has been guaranteeing the production of top Muscadet sur Lie in the Loire village of Saint-Fiacre-Sur-maine. Since the early 1700s, the “Melon de Bourgogne” (Muscadet) has been renowned for its almost unbeatable combination with fish dishes and more specifically shellfish and seafood. The grape is indeed originally from Burgundy, but nowadays it is only produced in the region around Nantes. The region of the Muscadet has traditionally been dominated by large trading houses that put quantity over quality, making it difficult for the smaller winegrower to compete and leading to a price war that only knew losers. But for some time now, under the impulse of a few passionate winegrowers, the qualities have increased enormously and you can even find gems of wines there for modest prices. The Gadais family owns several domains and is one of the pioneers in the field of modernization, ecological and sustainable agriculture and quality improvement in general. The vineyard where there is historically the very first known mention of Muscadet is also in their possession. They gave the Melon de Bourgogne back the place where it rightly belongs. Namely among the best culinary wines of France.

Domaine Paul Thomas

The vineyards of Paul Thomas are located in the tranquil village of Chavignol at the foot of the Côte des Monts Damnés. The privileged soils contain a lot of lime and are similar to the infamous "Oyster Bank" grounds in Chablis. (Terre Blanche) Chavignol is also known as one of the few real origin names of cheese. Namely the famous Crottin de Chavignol. (Local goat cheese) This can, if not different, combine like any other with the local Sancerre wines. Nowadays, son Raphaël Thomas runs the small family business. Normally he aspired to a career in physics but after his father suddenly died in 2000 he decided to continue the family tradition. He attaches great importance to a natural vinification and fermentation in old traditional wooden barrels and wants to make an optimal expression of Sancerre of each cuvée. Each cooper of grapes is harvested manually and carried from the steep slopes. Because of the different characteristics of his land, he can produce some beautiful Sancerre's with various characters. His wines show an ideal balance between intensity and structure and ensure that every wine lover has the necessary drinking pleasure.

Donatien Bahuaud

Born in 1906, Donatien Bahuaud has been passionate about viticulture since early childhood. As a young man, he was then 23 years old, he founded the house “Donatien Bahuaud” and was one of the founders of the AOC “Muscadet sur Lie”. In 1957 he buys Château Cassemichère from where he specializes in the different terroirs and soils of the Loire. Everywhere he is looking for the ideal pieces of land to grow wine. He goes from Nantes, via Chinon and Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil, to Pouilly Fumé, exploring almost the entire terroir of the Loire. Another thing that set him apart from most vintners was his specialization in "educating" the wine, which, according to him, makes the difference between just good and real top wine. Today, at Donatien Bahuaud, they continue to pursue the ideas and knowledge of this exceptional winemaker, benefiting from his pioneering work as the discoverer of the very best vineyards in the various appellations. His wines are therefore real gems and represent an entire wine region such as the Loire.

Monmosseau

What's in a name? In 1886 Alcide Monmousseau founded a winery that specialized entirely in creating and raising Sparkling wines in the classic way as in Champagne where the wine gets its pearls on the bottle. In the shadow of the famous castle of Chenonceau, huge cellars were dug out of one of the largest Tuffo layers in France. This white rock was not only used to build castles and abbeys, but is also ideal as a thermoregulatory material for the storage and aging of sparkling wines. The wines therefore receive a long maturation sur lattes, making them among the finest and most balanced in the region. They also pride themselves on exceptional mastery of blending. Their Crémant de Loire therefore consists of 6 different grapes, all of which contribute to the ideal assembly.

Like any right-minded modern company, great respect for the environment and climate is central here too. They have been working according to the Lutte Raisonnée for a long time, but since 2018 they now also have a real Bio label, HVE (Haute Valeur Environnementale). Moreover, a region like Burgundy naturally has its price (and today it has evolved out of all proportion). In that sense, you will find beautiful and honest wines here that form an affordable and tasty alternative to the top wines of the Côte d'Or, which are only available to a select audience these days.

Chablis Thomas Labille

In 1987, Etienne Boileau, Christian Simon and William Nahan pooled their available vineyards, giving them 11 hectares to ensure the start-up. 80 ha is still used to grow grain. A year later, the vineyard is already doubled. After a few difficult early years, the cultivation of grain is completely stopped and only one focus remains: WINE! In 1993, heavy investments were made in the cellars to guarantee an autonomous and qualitative vinification. This immediately leads to a first gold medal at the Concours Agricole de Paris. Over the years, several modernizations as well as prizes and medals followed. Gradually, the original domain manifested itself at the beginning of this century as one of the fixed values and better domains of Chablis. In 2019, the 3 original partners will retire and the succession will be ensured by Arnaud Nahan and Thomas Labille. With their latest vintages they prove that the quality has only improved. The original name is changed to simply 'Thomas Labille' but it remains Chablis and Chardonnay with a capital C... Bring on those oysters!

Historically, the vineyards of Château Brillette are among the very best in Moulis. Already when the Flageul family bought the domain in 1975, that was a fact, but since then all vineyards and the entire cellars have been taken over and renewed. They also benefit from a variety of terroirs that enable them to produce versatile and complex wines. A constant in this variation is the presence of many white boulders (Graves) on the surface, which gives an shining effect (Brillant in French) in the summer sun ... Brillette was born! To leave nothing to hasard, the knowledge of master winemaker, Eric Boissenot, is used. His merit in the Médoc is unrivaled and just about all big names such as Latour, Lafite-Rothschild, Margaux, Mouton-Rothschild, Palmer, Léoville Las Cazes and many others have been able to benefit from his expertise.

Château d'Alix

Pessac-Léognan is the most recent of the Bordeaux appellations. Soils consisting of river gravel deposits (up to 8 meters deep), left behind by the Garonne River as it changed its course during the Quaternary Era, set on Tertiary limestone subsoil. These stones and pebbles reflect the sun's radiation, increasing the vines' sun exposure and accelerating the ripening of the grapes.

Château Tasta

The domain, owned by the Chevalier family since 1922, covers 18 ha (13.5 ha in Fronsac, Canon Fronsac 3.5 ha and 1ha Rose). In 2001 Father Robert passed the torch to his son Patrice. With their T the Tasta they want to restore and honor to the original grandeur of Canon Fronsac. In the 18th century first steps were taken to produce high quality wines. Originally Canon Fronsac enjoyed a higher status in Libourne wines than Saint-Emillon and Pomerol. At his time, the vineyards of Fronsac were redistributed to much smaller growths which reflect the typical geographical terroir views in a more realistic way . The actual precursors of the current "Chateaux". History and tradition are enthusiastically kept alive, making Château Tasta a true showcase for the region.

Fonbadet

In the north of the Village of Saint-Lambert, the Château Fonbadet vineyard can be found, amidst the most reputed estates of the Pauillac Appellation. Fonbadet, the place that gave its name to the estate, is a typical place name in the Médoc terroir, a combination of the Gascogne words meaning fountain (fon) of the little valley (badet). In the Middle Ages, the estate was part of the Château Latour domain and all the evidence dating back to that period shows that vines were planted very early on.Since 2014, Michel Rolland's aid has also been called in. They also have a few other domains in Pauillac including Château Pauillac, a small domain located at a vineyard, were Château Latour also has its vineyards. The wine is 100% on new oak and consists of 70% cabernet sauvignon and 30% merlot. The 2nd wine is called "L'Harmonie de Fonbadet" and consists of the same mixture as mentioned below.

Château Montrose (Bordeaux Collection)

Montrose was originally part of the huge estate of Calon Segur and no wines were grown on it, but it was a well-known hunting ground. The skippers who sailed the Gironde easily recognized it in spring by the land that was then in bloom and colored the entire hill rose. It was not until the early 1800s that the owner suggested that this was probably one of the best lands in the entire Bordeaux region and effectively turned it into vineyards and took over the name of the sailors: Montrose. Thanks to the perfect location and soil, wines were quickly made that reached the top of Saint-Estèphe. It made Montrose the youngest domain of the famous 1855 classification. They were also one of the first domains to bottle their wines at the Château. A quality standard that would soon be copied by all other Château's. Today, Montrose is in the hands of the wealthy Bouygues family (Telecom and construction). After Thomas Bouygues had tasted the legendary vintage of 1989, he could not believe how good it was and he wanted to buy not only the bottle but the whole domain ... And so it happened! Since 2006, only top people who belonged to the crumb of the Bordeaux winery have been hired, and Montrose is a name that is mentioned in the same breath as the very best Château's from the Médoc.

Château Prieuré-Lichine (Bordeaux Collection)

Already in the 15th century there was structured viticulture by the monks of Cantenac. The domain served as a stopping place for pilgrims en route to Compostela. Prieuré-Lichine, for example, is a big exception in the classification of 1855, because almost all domains belonged to the nobility or the rich Bourgeoisie and there were no other wine properties in Bordeaux that belonged to the church. In 1952, Alexis bought Lichine, and named it Prieuré-Lichine. Alexis was one of the most colorful figures and best tasters ever in the history of Bordeaux. Just typing him would probably cost us a small book. Today the current owner, the Ballande group, owner of the most renowned domains in the world, boasts that you can find all the best features that Margaux has in one bottle of them.

Château Taillefer (Bordeaux Collection)

If you enter Pomerol along the west, it is the first serious domain that you encounter. It is one of the oldest properties in Pomerol and the building itself dates from the early 1800s. In 1923 it became the first domain of the famous Moeix dynasty that still holds it today. Unlike other Chateaus, Taillefer was closest to the commercial center of Libourne, making it easy to transport the wines by train to different locations and the markets that sold their wine at that time. The substrate also contains a relatively large amount of iron and also explains the name "Taillefer" which refers to this raw material.

Château Lafon-Rochet (Bordeaux Collection)

The domain was built in 1650 by Pierre de Lafon who had received the grounds (known as the land of Rochette) as his wife's dowry. During all this time, little or nothing changed in the size and accommodation of Lafon-Rochet and it completely fell into disrepair. When Guy Tesseron bought it in 1959, the domain was completely renewed. The size of the vineyards were also doubled and completely replanted, since the Cabernet was in clay and the Merlot was cultivated on gravel grounds. Even the building had to be completely rebuilt, making Lafon-Rochet the only Château in Bordeaux that was built in the 20th century, with a classification of 1855. Systematic renovations have been carried out regularly to this day, so that Lafon-Rochet now fully responds to the strict qualitative requirements of a top appellation such as Saint-Estèphe.

Château La Dominique (Bordeaux Collection)

Dominique has a long history in the region that goes back to the beginning of the 18th century. The name comes from the first owner who made his fortune on the Caribbean island of the same name. In 1969 the domain was bought by the current owners, the Fayat family. Clément Fayat was a rather remarkable figure who started his career as a bricklayer and from there grew into one of the largest construction companies in the world. It took a while before he implemented modernisations, but gradually a new drainage system was installed first and later a completely new basement was added. But it is mainly since 2007, when the new wine consultant, Jean-Luc Thunevin, joined the team that qualitative steps were taken and Dominique settled at the top of Saint-Emilion.

Château Grand Mayne (Bordeaux Collection)

The name Grand Mayne can be taken literally in this case and is freely translated for a luxurious house with a large piece of land attached to it. The house itself was built at the end of the 15th century and then also had 250 hectares of vineyards, which, compared to the 21 hectares of today, was a lot bigger. In 1934 the domain was purchased by the Nony family who modernized for generations but the biggest change, and a huge leap forward in quality came only from the vintage of 2015. Brand new accommodations and especially the influence of the new wine consultant Louis Mitjavil make Grand Mayne today one of the references of Saint-Emilion. The last volumes are therefore officially the best wines ever produced on Grand Mayne.

Château Sociando-Mallet

Sociando-Mallet was already founded in 1633 but it was in 1969 that it was purchased in its current situation by Jean Gautreau. He carried out drastic modernisations, expanded the vineyards and prepared the estate for the 21st century. Unfortunately, he died in 2019 at the age of 92 and the domain is now run by his daughter and her son. The vineyards are located north of the appellation of Saint-Estèphe. Due to its fairly northerly location in the Médoc, it is usually at its best in warmer vintages and is therefore characterized by a fairly elegant style. It is also one of the few Chateaus where nature is allowed to go its own way and so no green harvesting or yield reduction is done. This also gives it its rustic and slightly green character, which means that the wines usually need a little more time than with other Médoc's and have a rather 'own' audience.

Domaine de Laguille

This well-established family-owned vineyard is situated in the south west of France, an area known for its good living.

Monsieur et Mademoiselle

The range "Fifi and Marcel" was created by the inhabitants of the famous Château Fonbadet to offer some of the most classic grape varieties in France at an affordable price while keeping the quality in the foreground. The regions designated for this project are Côtes de Gascogne for white wines and Languedoc for red wines. An appropriate research of the soil and the climate of each place allows to create fruity and mineral white wines with a lot of freshness and for red wines of a beautiful concentration and at the same time seductive, sensual and tasty. The experience acquired over the years by this Château Bordelais now applies to these areas with high potential, where mass production was mainly done before. The importance is to restore these classic grape varieties in the quality they deserve. Moreover this French identity is emphasized by the frivolous character of the visuals on the bottles.

Champagne Michel Genet

Chouilly is located just below Epernay and is one of only 17 Grand Cru municipalities in the Champagne region, and this only for champagnes made from pure Chardonnay (Blanc de Blancs). With over 500 hectares of classified vineyards, it is the largest municipality in the appellation. The winery was founded in the 1960s by Michel Genet. Today it is his 2 sons and daughter, Vincent, Antoine and Agnes, who work the vineyards and led this winery into the 21st century. They call themselves “Manufacteurs de Grands Crus” where their entire concept is summed up in this one word “Manu-facture = Fait Main”.

Champagne Lamoureux

Just after the 2nd World War, in 1947, grandfather René Lamoureux planted his first vines in Les Riceys, making him the de facto founder of the house. However, it was his son, Jean-Jacques, who further developed this small winery to the next level. Les Riceys belongs to the least known and most secluded part of Champagne, the Côte de Bar. It is situated between Reims (Epernay) and Bourgogne, below the city of Troyes, far from the touristic heart of Champagne where the famous large houses are located. All the more, however, surprising and interesting discoveries can be made here without support of big branding. They count solely on their pure class. Today, son Vivien manages the winery, where Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier are presented pure and blended, with the same high quality standards for each cuvée. Just about all different types of champagne are represented here and make Champagne Lamoureux an unmissable opportunity for every champagne lover.
