Default Opening novelty by Maxime Vachier-Lagrave involving Rg1.

I heard someone talk about a recent opening novelty in Paris by Maxime Vachier-Lagrave involving Rg1 but couldn't find such a game. Could anyone help?

Thanks,

Paul

Isn't every game where you eventually go out of book an "opening novelty"? Where do you draw the line?
