The first release from an exciting new domaine you should not miss!
Last 2 Cases. Don't miss out!

When Sophie Noellat from Domaine Michel Noellat married the boy next door Arnaud Sirugue from Domaine Sirugue something special happened for wine lovers as well as the newly weds.

Arnaud's grandfather gifted them a parcel in the Vosne-Romanee vineyard Les Barreaux. A highly regarded vineyard, this parcel is supremely located. It sits in the pocket alongside Les Petits Monts and the legendary Premier Cru Clos Parantoux. On top of that the vines were old - 50-60 years of age.  

Les Barreaux was the backbone of the iconic Henri Jayers Vosne-Romanee and today Meo-Camuzet and Anne Gros make beautiful wines from the climat.

With that much winemaking in the family you might expect something special and the very first release from Domaine A&S exceeds everyone's expectations.

I am delighted to have secured some of this historic first release from what will certainly become a domaine to watch. To be honest I am rather excited to play a tiny part in the birth of a new family domaine. Take advantage of our Special 25% Pre Arrival Discount.

The wine is just about to be shipped from France. Be quick before it sells out!

AS Vosne Label Darren Harris: 
A gift from Arnaud's grandfather. This parcel of Vosne-Romanee Les Barreaux lies in the area partly surrounded by the 1er Crus Les Petits Monts and Cros Parantoux, just up the slope from Richebourg. It is a super site further enhanced by the fact that the vines are old - between 50 and 60 years of age. Arnaud and Sophie's very first wine is a killer! Not surprising with the family history at domaines Sirugue and Georges Noellat. Yet the young couple have decided to make the wine their own way using the experience gained both in Burgundy and abroad.

They have used 50% whole bunch (more than their respective family domaines) and 40% new oak. There has been little intervention - the quality and style of the vineyard allowed to shine through. Whilst their family domaines had both bottled, the Domaine A&S Vosne-Romanee Les Barreaux was still in barrel when I visited late March 2018.

Deep red. Expressive, layered nose of dark cherry, violets and Asian spice with a discreet note of new oak. The palate is very fresh and displays the same character with a rich, velvety texture no doubt from the old vines. Intense and focused. This has the extract and mouthfeel of a top Vosne Premier Cru finishing with serious length from ripe, refined tannins suggesting a great future ahead. An outstanding first release and I urge all Vosne lovers to grab a few bottles or more. Not only will you have a super wine but you will have priority for future releases.

Christmas in July Header 2
Christmas in July. Burgundy Lunch at Ryne
What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon in Melbourne than at our Christmas in July Burgundy Lunch at Ryne?
 
Settle in with no less than 14 different bottles of Burgundy and a 4-course lunch cooked by Ryne Chef Donovan Cooke. 
 
We'll start off with a glass of Domaine Jean Durup Chablis 1er Cru L'Homme Mort 2014 with canapes. A curious name indeed and the subject of much conjecture as to its origins. Then we have a bracket of three Premier Cru whites, two of which are from the newly arrived 2016 vintage.
 
Before we hit the serious reds we'll taste the Domaine Chevillon-Chezeaux Coteaux Bourguignons 2015. Made from 100% Gamay from Vosne-Romanee and Nuits-St-Georges it is a super drink for the price.
 
No Burgundy lunch would be complete without some reds. A lot of them! We have three brackets of 3 Red Burgundies, each from a different commune and maker. Compare, discuss and pick your favourite. Eight of the 9 wines are Premier Crus. There will be some beauties.

Date: Sunday 29 July 2018
Time: 12.30pm
Venue: Ryne, 203 St Georges Rd, Fitzroy North 3065
Cost: $175.00 per person
