+ Read More

The estate of Champagne Roger Coulon has been producing wine since 1806 in the village of Vrigny in the Montagne de Reims. For 9 generations now, the Coulons have been crafting Champagnes, with Eric & Isabelle Coulon now joined by their children Louise and Edgar. The entire estate has been organic since 2019 – a representation of their continued progression as an estate. Heri-Hodie (meaning ‘yesterday and today’) is their expression of the link between the generations of the family and their continued passion for wine over the centuries. It is a blend of 50% Meunier, 25% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir, from the Premier Cru villages of Vrigny, Coulomne and Pargny. It spends at least 3 years on lees, which is much longer than the region’s average time & legal requirements for a non-vintage Champagne. The wine receives a low dosage of around 2g/L to retain their purity of the individuality of the villages that make up the blend. 

While it may be a domaine that has been overshadowed by other grower producers in the past, the future is one of renewed vigour and interest towards Roger Coulon.

Chanterêves Bourgogne Chardonnay

What — Chardonnay
Where — Burgundy, France
When — 2018

Notes of yellow stone fruits, lemon zest with a good mid-palate richness. A fruit purity shines through on the palate, along with a crushed rock minerality and long finish which truly over delivers at a ‘mere’ Bourgogne level

+ Read More

Guillaume and Tomoko source their Bourgogne Chardonnay from two locations, with two-thirds coming from Maranges and the remaining third from Pierres Dorées. Maranges lies at the southern end of the Côte d’Or, while Pierres Dorées is located at the southern tip of Beaujolais, adjacent to Lyon. Pierres Dorées sits on a unique soil of fossiliferous Bajocian limestone which imparts flavours not readily seen in wines of the surroundings. The wine receives the same attention and approach as the others within their range – natural fermentation, no fining, only a light filtration when they feel it is needed, with a minimal use of sulphur through the élevage. It spends around 12 months in barrels which vary in size from 228L to 600L.  

The nature of the fruit sources, combined with the warmth of the 2018 vintage adds a sense of generosity while still retaining Guillaume and Tomoko’s distinct style.

Ministry of Clouds Tempranillo Grenache

What — Tempranillo, Grenache
Where — McLaren Vale, South Australia
When — 2019

Bright notes of pomegranate, sarsaparilla, violets and nutmeg typical of dry grown Tempranillo, with the perfume and succulence of old vine Grenache. A lithe and juicy wine that favours the blood orange, cherry, red berry spectrum on the palate supported by savoury tannins built around a nervy structure, with a deliberately moreish nature.

+ Read More

Together with partner Julian Forwood, Bernice Ong created Ministry of Clouds in 2013. It marked a transition as “corporate refugees”, in their own words, from the marketing and distribution aspects of the wine world to diving into owning their own vineyard and creating their own wines. They complement their own fruit with old vine material from other regions – the majority of their grapes coming from their home region of McLaren Vale.  

A combination of premium vineyards within McLaren Vale were used for the fruit sources of the Tempranillo and Grenache, including vines up to 100 years of age. The fruit was handled very gently to retain freshness and vibrancy, with the use of whole bunch and carbonic maceration in the winemaking process. The wine was aged in a mixture of stainless steel, old French oak puncheons (larger barrels) and a single large 5,000 litre old oak foudre from 11 months before bottling. Drawing inspiration from Spain, the blend speaks with a decidedly new-wave Australian accent, expressing restraint and poise and eschewing excessive alcohol and oak usage. 

The short but exciting life of Ministry of Clouds has already been regularly recognised in the Australian wine world, with their inaugural releases being named in James Halliday’s ‘Top 10 New Wineries’. The name Ministry of Clouds represents the juxtaposition of their past security and structure aka “the ministry” of their past careers in search of freedom, independence and adventure to which they have no real control, just as we have no control over clouds.
