One of the widest selections of the web of authors' wines and craftsmen


Créée en 2016, cette cuvée est issue de vignes centenaires plantées par l’arrière grand-père au retour de la première Guerre Mondiale. En son honneur, nous avons souhaité vinifier ces vignes qu’il a planté comme il les vinifiait lui même, dans de vieux demi-muids. Charleston est donc vinifié et élevé durant un an dans un demi-muid de plus de 10ans. Lors de la vendange suivante, le vin est soutiré et placé en cuve pour un élevage prolongé de 6 mois avant mise en bouteille.

Alors que la cuvée Quintaine possède l'explosivité aromatique due aux grains nobles, les vieilles vignes de Charleston, moins sensibles aux aléas climatiques ont donné un vin profond, complexe, un vin qui prend son temps et se révèle doucement dans le verre. Les notes aromatiques de bois proprement dites sont absentes grâce à l’âge du demi-muid utilisé, mais la micro-oxygénation naturelle du bois confère une richesse certaine au vin.

What is an author wine?

This can be so diverse depending on the personality of their sire, that it is easier to define what it is not. An author wine is anything but a standard, stereotypical wine, made to please as many people as possible. It is therefore rarely produced in millions of copies, copying itself from vintage in vintage.

An author wine is therefore a wine that does not look like that of the neighbor. Which from year to year will evolve according to the vagaries of the weather and the mood of the author - the two that can be linked. Because the author does not rely on market studies to carry out his boat. He makes his wine as he feels, as he likes, as he can, sometimes ... and too bad if he does not please everyone.

This is why author wines are sometimes classified as "table wine" or "France wine". Because the winemaker did not plan the authorized grape variety*, makes the assembly or vinification recommended in the name **. He is often a bit rebellious, our author. But that is why we like it! ... That said, author's wines are not systematically marginal: they are present in most of the appellations, and can be part of the elite of these this***. Because they are not content to have personality: they are good, in addition! With in general aDegree of TorchabilityVery high: we never tire of it at the end of the first sip.

As author's wines are not chaptalized, levied, hacked ... They can have very different profiles depending on the vintage. It is up to us (resellers and consumers) to accept them as they are, and to remain faithful to the producers, because they need us to continue their activity.


* For example, theTouriga Nacionalin the Minervois, or theSyrahIn Forez ribs. They are crazy, these authors!

** Some winegrowers dare to produceSweety with Mourvèdre or oneNatural sparkling with Pineau d'Aunis

*** Like those of Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura or Zind-Humbercht in Alsace
