I have written about Arnaud et Sophie (Sirugue and Noëllat) before and presented some of their joyous wines.
Now I have had the possibility to meet each of them, as Sophie joined Arnaud for the tasting at Domaine Sirugue in March.
To keep things separate, I will present only the Arnaud et Sophie wines in this article; they deserve some extra attention and recognition.
Sophie Noëllat and Arnaud Sirugue
Sophie and Arnaud come from two Vosne estates – Michel Noëllat and Robert Sirugue – and their joint estate somehow represents the future of Vosne to me.
They got their start in 2016 with one wine: a very interesting Vosne village from Les Barreaux, a parcel which adjoins Cros Parantoux and Les Petits Monts – indeed an excellent location (see below).
They also produced a sexy, traditionally made rosé – i.e. saignée or, if you like, Provencal style – and sold it under both the Arnaud et Sophie label and the Sirugue brand.
With their 2018s, they introduced a Meursault Grands Charrons and a Gevrey-Chambertin En Champs, expanding the portfolio even further. I’m really looking forward to see what comes next.
The plot on the edge of Cros Parantoux
Arnaud and Sophie’s Vosne village comes from what for me is an exciting plot. I therefore think it’s worth dwelling a bit on this near-Parantoux experience (so to speak).
