Amandine’s Top Picks:

Bopp & Tone Wynyard

2017 Jean-Claude Rateau Beaune Clos des Mariages Burgundy.

At Bopp & Tone we have Jean-Claude Rateau Beaune Clos des Mariages from Burgundy on our coravin by the glass selection. Jean Claude Rateau was the first winemaker to convert his vineyard to biodynamic in 1979. The Clos des Mariages was actually his first vineyard converted to biodynamic. Even though Cote de Beaune is more known for their white don’t be fooled as his Beaune Clos des Mariages shows power, density, and complexity with beautiful fruit.

The Butler Potts Point

2020 Hey! Malbec by Matias Riccitelli from Mendoza in Argentina

With an exciting Ibero-American influenced menu at The Butler we picked a beautiful Malbec made by Matias Riccetelli from Mendoza in Argentina. Matias is known as a madman in Mendoza. Young & full of energy, he is challenging many of the preconceptions of the Mendoza region. The Hey! Malbec is a more approachable version of Malbec, medium body with dark cherry, plum, and an undertone of spice.
