slow roasted duck
Melbourne-born Jane Eyre-Renard, one of the pioneers of the growing micro-negotiant movement, continues her inexorable rise to stardom.
Based in Burgundy since 2003, she has paid her dues at some top domaines including de Montille and Comtes Lafon and still assists the winemaking at Domaine Newman, whilst making her own wines in a facility shared with Dominique Lafon.
Her wines, whether from Beaune, Nuits, or Beaujolais, display her distinctive style - charming and inviting, with supple tannins and soft but bright fruits. Gentle extraction and oaking, and early bottling means these are among the more immediately accessible Burgundies in our portfolio.
What to drink with... slow roasted duck.
A wine with tannins will complement this succulent dish. From South Africa to the Americas to NZ and Australia and back to the Old World – there is such a choice of styles and different grape varieties which marry well with duck. If you fancy a wild card, try a bottle of Champagne – the bubbles will cut through the fattiness of the duck, or how about a Sherry?
