Henry Marionnet Sauvignon Cuvee 
M de Marionnet 2014
Normal Price $59.50
Australia Day Price $32.50
25 bottles available
 
Marionnet Touraine label 300
The Marionnet family has owned the Domaine de la Charmoise since 1850. The winery is nestled in the village of Soings, 30 km south of Blois, deep in the forests of La Sologne. Here, the vines benefit from a mild climate and their unique situation, resting at the highest point between the Loire and Cher rivers. This wine is 100% Sauvignon from old vines. Something quite special.

Bettane and Desseauve: 
M-de-Marionnet from a plot that produces this wine on sands and flint. All in power, remarkable fullness. 
16/20

Domaine Launay-Horiot Pommard 1er Cru Chaponnieres 2014
Normal Price $169.00
Australia Day Price $90.50
26 bottles available
 
Launay-Horiot Chapnnieres NV label This small vineyard (2.87 hectares) lies below Les Rugiens Bas. Jasper Morris MW says it is "an excellent site". The 2014 vintage has produced wonderful reds that are classically styled with concentration and intensity. The 2014 was also the first commercial release from Domaine Launay-Horiot and as such is something of a collector's item.
Domaine Denis Pere et Fils Pernand Vergelesses 1er Cru Ile des Vergelesses 2016
Normal Price $92.95
Australia Day Price $55.55
48 bottles available

Denis Pere Ile Vergelesses label
Darren Harris: Ile des Vergelesses is universally regarded as the finest red vineyard in Pernand. It is perfectly situated mid slope facing south-east and is not affected by the shadow of the Corton hill. Nose of fine red-black fruit with considerable depth. Background notes of flowers and spice. The palate is mineral and savoury, tannins carry the fruit and it finishes long and defined. This vineyard is admired by those in the know but it deserves much better recognition as it always performs above its station.

Domaine Doudet-Naudin Sparkling Chardonnay NV Case of 12 Bottles
Normal Price $335.40
Australia Day Price $175.00* Per Case
11 cases available
 
Doudet Sparkling label
Before it became popular for still wines Savigny-Les-Beaune was known for its sparkling wines. Today, very few domaines produce sparkling wines in the commune.

Doudet-Naudin have made the exciting decision to introduce a Sparkling wine to their portfolio. The wine is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes.

The wine is very well priced and is perfect for those looking for an uncomplicated sparkling wine for everyday drinking.
Domaine Olivier Guyot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux 2016
Normal Price $235.95
Australia Day Price $153.50
33 bottles available
 
Guyot Champeaux
The most northerly of the Gevrey Premier Crus Les Champeaux is on soil that barely covers the bedrock. We see more juicy fruit here than further south with nice mouth-filling richness.

Fleshy and elegant, this 1er cru bourguignon reveals its terroir! 
The finesse is the qualifier that comes after when we tasted this Premier Cru from the oldest vines of the estate planted in 1901. Elegant and fleshy on the palate, it seduces with its subtle aromas of violet, blackcurrant and morello cherry. Harmonious and complex, today it shows a certain pleasure that time will make even better! 


Domaine Agape Riesling Expression 2015
Normal Price $38.95 per bottle
Australia Day Price $26.00 per bottle
22 bottles available
 
Agape Riesling Expression label Dry, refined and delicately fruity, it has an elegant bouquet with sometimes mineral or floral notes, giving it good ageing potential. Recognised as one of the world's finest white wine varietals, it is agastronomic wine par excellence. Food pairing: Renowned as one of the best white grape varieties in the world, Alsace Riesling is an excellent food wine. In addition to pairing naturally with traditional Alsace dishes such as Choucroute and pork-based dishes, it has a natural affinity with fish and shellfish, such as scallops, gracefully highlighting the salty, almost iodene flavours of the sea. It is also delicious with poultry, white meats and even goat's cheese. As a late harvest wine, Alsace Riesling is an ideal partner for citrus-based desserts such as lemon tart.

Domaine Bertagna Haute Cotes de Nuits Dame Huguette 2016
Normal Price $58.95 per bottle
Australia Day Price $39.95 per bottle
36 bottles available

Bertagna huguettes label Most Hautes Cote des Nuits comes from hillsides around the Cote d'Or but some is sourced from plots within the major communes. Les Dames Huguettes is a vineyard located in Nuits-St-Georges making it one of the finest terroirs for this premium level Bourgogne.

Darren Harris: From Les Dames Huguettes - located in the commune of Nuits-St-Georges this vineyard has a reputation for high quality Hautes Cotes de Nuits. 20% stems. Medium red. Structured and powerful for a wine of this level. It opens out on the mid palate with gravelly, red-black fruits and then tightens again on the finish. Warrants a few years in the cellar and then dare I say will be the equal of many 1er Cru Nuits.

Jerome Castagnier Puligny-Montrachet 2015
Normal Price $138.50 per bottle
Australia Day Price $89.95 per bottle
22 bottles available

There would not be many white Burgundy Lovers who are not in love with the wines of Puligny-Montrachet.

The wines of this commune are the most floral and mineral of the Cote de Beaune.

I don't have a tasting note for this wine but knowing the quality of the whites made by Young Winemaker of the Year Jerome Castagnier you can't go wrong.

Domaine Brigitte Berthelemot Monthelie Rouge 2014
Normal Price $62.95 per bottle
Australia Day Price $42.95 per bottle
12 bottles available

Bertelemot Monthelie label A blend from the vineyards Pierrefittes (75%) and Joueres (25%). The vines are between 30 and 50 years of age. The Pierrefittes grapes add colour with aromas of blackberries and violets with persistent minerality. The Joueres grapes are more red fruited, full bodied and add a silkiness to the wine.

Monthelie is worth taking a look at. There are some quality wines being produced but as the village is not famous prices are still very reasonable.

Domaine Michel Noellat Nuits-St-Georges 2015
Normal Price $120.95 per bottle
Australia Day Price $84.65 per bottle
24 bottles available

Noellat NSG label
Wine Advocate - Neal Martin: The 2015 Nuits Saint-Georges Village comes from two parcels in Aux Allots and Aux Barrières. It has a fragrant bouquet with blackcurrant pastilles, raspberry coulis and overripe Satsuma aromas. There is just a touch of reduction here. The palate is very well balanced, spicier than the other village cru, quite elegant and poised towards the silky smooth finish. This is a lovely village cru. 88-90 Points

Cheers,
Darren

Vosne-Romanee Lunch Ryne Header
 
Let's Drink Vosne-Romanee! Lunch at Ryne
 
What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon? 12 Different Vosne-Romanee and a 4-course menu
 
We all love Vosne-Romanee - it's Burgundy's top red wine commune. To kick start 2019 we have a terrific Sunday lunch planned at Ryne featuring 12 different Vosne-Romanee.

We've split the wines into three brackets starting with a bracket of 4 Villages Vosne-Romanee. These will allow you to hone the palate and get an idea of the style of Vosne-Romanee. 

We'll then move on to the next bracket featuring 4 lieux-dits. Here the varying terroirs of Vosne-Romanee can be explored with wines from all corners of the Vosne compass. 

To finish we have an intriguing Premier Cru bracket starting with the famous Les Suchots and concluding with 3 different Les Beaux Monts, one of my favourite vineyards. There's a nice little menage a trois here between maker and vintage.

We have 6 wines from each of the 2016 and 2015 vintages. They are both great - it is a matter of style as to which you prefer. This is a great opportunity to taste and compare.
 
The lunch will be at Ryne. Chef Donovan Cooke will prepare a matching 4-course menu.
 
Donovan Cooke For those of you who don't know Donovan he has quite a CV. Starting in Europe, he worked his way through the Savoy Hotel, Waterside Inn in Bray, Harvey's in London and La Cote St Jacques in Burgundy. In 1997 he shifted his focus to Melbourne where he co-opened the highly influential restaurant Est Est Est, followed by Luxe (awarded 3 hats in its first year) and Ondine (Best New Restaurant, The Age Good Food Guide).
 
Donovan was presented with the reigns of the Derby Restaurant and Bar at The Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club. He served as Chef de Cuisine for the next 6 and a half years. He has now returned to Melbourne to start this new venture - Ryne. To view Ryne's website click here.
