“Off The Beaten Track.

The French Cellar and sommelier Nicolas Rebut want to show wine drinkers in the city-state that French wines is more than just Bordeaux”

The French Cellar 4th Anniversary -The French Cellar in Straits Times 29 Oct 2013

Chatting over wine, two Frenchmen based in Singapore mulled over the possibility of starting a wine-of-the-month club here.

The duo, Mr Eric Joubert and Mr Vincent Morello, both 30, have launched The French Cellar (www.thefrenchcellar.sg), roping in experienced sommelier Nicolas Rebut, 38, who is based in France, to choose the wines.

“We will travel from Bordeaux to Languedoc, from Alsace to Burgundy, from Champagne to Provence and so on. A part of France will be brought to Singapore every month.”

“It was truly a feast for the senses when Singapore Tatler hosted our first‑ever Tatler Table: The Art Series at the Ode to Art gallery. Chef Kirk Westaway, head chef of Michelin-starred Jaan, crafted a bespoke tasting menu for the occasion.

The menu was paired with a curated selection of wines from The French Cellar, a premium wine subscription service.

The highlight of the evening was the opportunity to dine with the highly acclaimed, reclusive artist Hong Zhu An, who is represented by Ode to Art. He held court with art enthusiasts who discovered how his childhood in Shanghai and four years spent living in Australia influenced his body of work.”

EDB Future Ready Singapore “The subscription model”

futureready

(…)

Unique offerings seem to be a cornerstone of this business model, with products that have a high level of differentiation – such as premium products or carefully curated selections – seeing success in Asia. The French Cellar, which started out in Singapore in 2013, has since expanded into Hong Kong and Shanghai.

The company offers monthly subscriptions of artisanal wines from top wineries in France, chosen by its sommelier who has previously worked in three-starred Michelin restaurants. It plans to expand into major cities in China and Japan, according to Vincent Morello, The French Cellar’s CEO.

“We decided to expand because of the good traction in Singapore and because there were no such services in Hong Kong and China,” says Morello. “The demand from millennials is increasing significantly, showing that what we offer is fully adapted to mass-affluent markets.”

Exclusivity seems to keep subscribers coming back. The wines offered by The French Cellar, for instance, are available only to its subscribers.

“Our wines are personally curated by our sommelier Nicolas Rebut. Thanks to his experience and connections, we get exclusive artisanal wines from top-quality wineries that do not export to Asia and which sell out quickly in France.”

Award Winning French Wine Scholar chooses The French Cellar – Mini-Interview #1

The French Cellar mini-interview #1


Victor Koo

Certified Specialist in Wine
French Wine Scholar
– Victor, when and why did you subscribe to The French Cellar? 
I joined TFC in November 2013. Having 2 bottles of wine delivered to your house every month is one way to stock up the wine fridge which seems to be empty most of the time in my case :)
 
– What do you think about our Vineyard Gems and Tasting Voyage selections of wines so far?
I am actually very impressed with what Nicolas Rebut has selected for both Vineyard Gems and Tasting Voyage. Many of the wines are not readily available in Singapore and some not even in Paris! I find the wines of Vineyard Gems to be fun and exciting whereas the Tasting Voyage are for those who are abit more discerning.
 
– Which wine impresses you the most? why?
There are many but I probably re ordered the Chateau Simone Rose the most. I am never a big fan of Rose but this stuff is serious.
 
– Would you recommend The French Cellar to your friends?
Duh (of course)

“Boutique wines to impress your friends with”

buro

Sommelier Nicolas Rebut picks five lesser-known labels that will charm even the most seasoned oenophile

It is easy to impress with a bottle of Château Margaux or Château Lafite Rothschild, but to uncork an unforgettable bottle of wine few have discovered is a truly spiritual experience. Here are five to pair with dishes at your next dinner party.

Boutique wines to impress your friends with

Allobroges Cuvée Schiste, Domaine des Ardoisières, 2012

An astonishing wine with an incredible aromatic complexity and minerality from the terroir of Savoie.

Tasting notes: A very surprising and original nose with aromas of yellow fruits (apricot, pineapple), mineral and white pepper. Well-balanced palate between richness and acidity. A very long finish. Very mineral and fresh.

Pair it with: Cold lobster salad with shaved truffles, roasted prawns, cheese.

Boutique wines to impress your friends with

Champagne Lassaigne, Brut Réserve, Blanc de Blancs 

This superb Blanc de Blancs is raised under the care of Emmanuel Lassaigne, a young and exceptionally talented winemaker.

Tasting notes: Complex and intense aroma. Aromas of yellow fruits, white flowers, and fresh brioche surrounded by beautiful mineral notes. A Champagne of character, very delicate and fine.

Pair it with: Lobster, white fish carpaccio.

Boutique wines to impress your friends with

Château Simone Rosé, Palette, 2013

Château Simone is one of the jewels of Provence. It is a remarkable wine I have served many times in some of the world’s finest restaurants.

Tasting notes: An original nose with notes of wild strawberry, raspberry and cherry. Slightly minty and  fresh. Very elegant with a very long finish.

Pair it with: Grilled scallops, shrimp pad thai, salmon maki, sea bass with fennel.

Boutique wines to impress your friends with

Patrimonio, Domaine d’E Croce Yves Leccia, 2011

Hailing from the Patrimonio wine region located on the northern coast of Corsica, this beautiful wine is made with local Nielluciu and Grenache grapes.

Tasting notes: A very nice nose, intense and complex with aromas of raspberry, blackcurrant and blackberry. Delicious palate, generous and well-balanced, with smooth tannins. An impressive length.

Pair it with: Beef stew, lamb tagine, rack of lamb, beef with oyster sauce.

Boutique wines to impress your friends with

Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves, Domaine de la Vougeraie, 2001 

A great Pinot Noir from Burgundy from an outstanding winemaker. Exceptional and rare, only 1294 bottles of this wine were produced in 2001.

Tasting notes: Very charming nose, with a nice aromatic presence of red fruits, leather, fresh tobacco, candied cherries and plum. Stunning palate with velvety tannins. Harmonious, smooth with the intensity and depth of a Pinot Noir from a great terroir.

Pair it with: Peking duck, slow-cooked lamb, spiced pork belly confit.

Nicolas Rebut, sommelier of The French Cellar, in Sunday Times

 

Sniffing out good wine Eunice Quek, Sunday Times

French sommelier Nicolas Rebut was trained by his granddad to recognize wine aromas before he was old enough to drink it. 

It is not any commercial wine that gets delivered to subscribers. By introducing eight new winemakers to the list every month, Mr Rebut ensures that exclusive selection is not only of the finest quality, but also represents a variety or regions and winemakers.

He says: “A lot of winemakers know my name and send me their wine. If the wine is good, I go to the vineyard to meet them. If not, I pass”.

Based in France, Nicolas explores vineyards and forges privileged relationships with estates and winemakers in search of exclusive wines at the best value, the gems France has to offer. Nicolas tastes thousands of wine samples each year and selects only the best wines from renowned estates and undiscovered appellations.

He joined three-star Michelin restaurant, “Le Louis XV” – managed by Alain Ducasse, one of the greatest French Chefs – in 1999, where he became Chef Sommelier in charge of the cellar, wine selection and pairing.

In 2005, Nicolas left Monaco to join as Chef Sommelier for Paris’ three-star Michelin outlet, “Le Meurice”, where he managed a team of seven sommeliers. He revolutionalised the wine menu and was responsible for its exceptional wine cellar of over 500, 000 bottles.

Nicolas is also the author – together with Chihiro Masui – of wine-pairing guide and bestseller, “Une affaire de gout”.

“If you’re a regular wine purchaser and like to sample a wide range of wines but are just too darned lazy to go through the whole selection process week in, week out, joining a wine subscription service like The French Cellar can keep your coffers stocked.

A $79 a month subscription gets you 2 monthly French wines selected by a 3 star sommelier. Each month, you receive a shipment of wines, delivered directly to your doorstep. That’s it.”

Wine start-up savours $1m funding – E-commerce and subscription outfit The French Cellar now valued at $5m

BT Screen Shot 2014-06-12 at 10.19.14 am

[SINGAPORE] A Singapore start-up looking to disrupt the way that Asian wine lovers purchase and appreciate wine has raised some $1 million in Series A funding, and is now valued at $5 million just eight months after its launch, its chief executive officer Vincent Morello told The Business Times.

The Peak Wine Club powered by The French Cellar – Launch event
“Wine Lovers, Get Fine French Wines Delivered To Your Doorstep from The French Cellar”

“For all the wine lovers out there like us who are tired of not knowing how to choose a good bottle or who want to learn more about different vintages and varietals, The French Cellar is for you!

uj

This unique wine subscription service will deliver fine French wines along with tasting notes and videos straight to your door every month at super affordable prices. This way you can discover amazing new wines, bone up on your wine knowledge, and start building a wine collection that will be the envy of all your oenophile friends.

The French Cellar was established in 2013 by a team of passionate wine lovers who wanted to bring a bit of the French joie de vivre to Singapore via seriously good wines. They also wanted to make wine more accessible to all, hence their easy and convenient subscription service that takes the guesswork and legwork out of finding an excellent wine.

Each wine is hand picked by master sommelier Nicolas Rebut, formerly Chef Sommelier of 3-star Michelin restaurants Le Meurice, in Paris and Louis XV (Alain Ducasse) in Monaco. With over 20 years of experience under his belt, Nicolas has built up a solid repertoire with exclusive vineyards across France, and so The French Cellar collection includes classics from renowned estates as well as hidden gems from innovative vineyards.

Subscriptions include two bottles of wine per month delivered directly straight to your door, wine tasting notes, suggestions for food pairings, and background information on the estate and winemaker, which is information you won’t necessarily get off the label. And it’s all very affordable thanks to Nicholas’ direct connection to the winemakers. You can also reorder your favourite bottles at discounted prices.

There are four different packages to choose from, but the most popular is the Tasting Voyage package, which starts at $139 per month for a 12 month duration. You can also opt in for 6 months or 3 months only. The Tasting Voyage selections so far have featured bottles from prestigious appelations like Champagne, Margaux, Pommard, and Chateauneuf-du-Pape, as well as lesser known gems like Domaine des Ardoisieres in Savoie, and the Palette appellation.

Whether you’re looking to become somewhat of a wine connoisseur, or simply want to try great new sommelier-approved bottles in the comfort of your own home, this is a fun and easy way to enjoy great vino without having to scour the city or spend bucketloads drinking and dining out.”

About The French Cellar
The French Cellar (www.theFrenchCellar.asia) imports French wines directly from vineyards, carefully selected by our sommelier Nicolas Rebut, former Chef Sommelier of the 3-star Michelin restaurants Louis XV (Monaco) and Le Meurice (Paris). Our goal is to bring the best wines France has to offer, at great value, to our members. The French Cellar allows members to discover two beautiful tasting wines every month, exclusively through our platform, thanks to a special and personal relationship we have between our sommelier and winemakers in France. The wines will be delivered free to you in the comfort of your home, together with wine tasting notes written by the sommelier, so that members can enjoy an epicurean wine journey, and learn more about the wines, winemakers and vineyards with us. The French Cellar is pioneering the Wine Subscription E-commerce Model in Asia.
