It’s always delightful to visit Domaine Sirugue, as I get to taste the wines from Arnaud et Sophie (Sirugue and Noëllat) at the same time. While their wines are serious, they consistently give me a reason to smile.
I will present only the Arnaud et Sophie wines in this article; they deserve their own attention and recognition.
Sophie Noëllat and Arnaud Sirugue
Sophie and Arnaud come from two Vosne-Romanée estates – Michel Noëllat and Robert Sirugue – and their joint effort 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 – an excellent location (see below).
They also produced a quite sexy, traditionally made rosé – produced Provencal-style by bleeding off juice from red grapes (saignée) – 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 seeing what comes next.
The plot on the edge of Cros Parantoux
Not many know this vineyard, so here is a glance at the top of Vosne-Romanée.
Arnaud and Sophie’s Vosne village comes from an exciting parcel which is worth dwelling on a bit, as it gives a near-Parantoux experience (so to speak).
