I was in Paris recently and was lucky enough to visit Caves Augé with a friend. we met with Marc Sibard, the manager who invited us to join him sitting out on the pavement. Here we discussed the world of wine whilst he enticed us with a superb champagne from a little known house followed by a fine Burgundian Pinot Noir from Vosne Romanee in the Cote de Nuits area. it was a 'fresh', unfiltered wine that he allowed to breath in a very interesting teapot shaped decanter that apparently aids agitation and speeds up the oxygination like no other decanter. The result was a marvellous mouthfilling wine that was remarkably complex for it's age. After a delightful and informative hour on the sidewalk, Marc selected several bottles of wine for me to take back to Hong Kong. I have only had the time to drink one since returning. It was a chardonnay from Auxey-Duresses, a tiny appelation in the Cote de Beaune area of Burgundy. This wine was absolutely delicious and every bit as good as any of the superb wines from neighbouring Meursalt. I look forward to savouring the other exciting wines Marc has selected for me, all from small wine makers that you will most probably not find anywhere else outside of their own domain other than at Augé. Marc also has an amazing selection of Brandies, Armagnacs and Calvados. Visit Augé and you will come away informed, inspired and the happy new owner of some of the most exciting wines from France and beyond. enjoy!
