Monopole Potts Point

Anthony Moore

Swoon baby swoon. The sign out front is not up yet, though the elegant wine bar and restaurant Monopole – the latest offering from Brent Savage and Nick Hilderbrandt of the Bentley Restaurant & Bar – has (just) opened. I’ve taken an early peek and I’m truly excited with its showcase of classic and modern wines by the glass (from $8), carafe and bottle. Wines cover the globe from Burgundy (France) to the Yarra Valley (Australia.)

“Try something you haven’t tried before” Anthony Moore advised me, before pointing me in the direction of the natural wine Jamsheed For Bentley 2011 Syrah. And I quite enjoyed a tipple or two of the Jamsheed for Bentley 2011 Roussanne. The list of Growers’ Champagnes (Diesolt-Vallois, David Leclapart, Cédric Bouchard and Jacques Selosse) is impressive yet the stand out for me is the extensive range of Pinot Noir from Burgundy.

Postscript: with Brent Savage at the helm, you know the food has gotta be good too.
