Our wine list changes frequently so please contact us in advance if you are interested in a particular wine especially bin ends.

Château Boudigand 2007.
C.B. (Comte de Bosredon)

  • I have rarely been impressed by the white wines of the Appellation, but this wine is a knock out. Fine gold colour; plenty of semillon on the nose; wonderfully focussed and sprightly fruit on the palate. Balanced, delicious, and great value.
  • Bottle £22.50
    Glass £5.80

Chablis Mont de Milieu 2012
Première Cru D.B. (Billaud-Simon)

  • A great name in Chablis, this domaine makes classically elegant wines with precise and well-defined fruit. This is a relatively forward vintage, drinking well. Pale lemon in colour; delicately floral nose with peach and honey notes; fine punchy Chardonnay fruit on entry, underlain throughout the palate by a thread of delicate citrus acidity. Delicious.
  • Bottle £37.00

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Domaine Grand Veneur 2014
D.B. (Alain Jaume)

  • White Rhônes are under-appreciated in Britain, which is a shame, as they are distinctive, and are frequently both well-made and excellent value. This is a delicious example; water-pale in colour; fine elegant floral-lemony nose; full and ripe on the palate, with peach and honey notes balanced by excellent acidity, and a long nutty finish. Really fine wine.
  • Bottle £45.00

Chateau Patache D'Aux 2005
Cru Bourgeois Supérieure C.B.

  • A vintage which seemed so generous in infancy but which has surprised me by how long it has taken to mature fully. However, many wines are now starting to drink very well. We have been listing the better vintages of this property for nearly 40 years, and as the vines age the quality has improved hugely. Fine deep garnet colour, semi mature; lovely harmonious cabernet fruit on the nose, with cassis, pepper and sweet spice notes; balanced, seamless fruit on the palate, forceful, seamless, delicious.
  • Bottle £31.00
    Half Bottle £16.50

Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Noir 2010.
D.B. (Ambroise)

  • 2010 was the finest Red burgundy vintage since 2005, and it shows even at this modest level. Classically structured, this generic wine could easily be a village wine, or better, in terms of quality. Fully mature in colour, limpid ruby; absolutely authentic Pinot nose with rotty/farmyard aromas; similar palate, persistent Pinot with a touch of austerity. Wonderful basic Burgundy at a fantastic price.
  • Bottle £28.00

Rioja Belezos 2013.
D.O.C. Estate Bottled (Bodegas Zugober)

  • Nice and juicy uncomplicated Rioja. Good deep scarlet just maturing at the rim; healthy plum-and-cassis fruit on the nose; good gutsy Tempranillo character on the palate, with nice oaky notes.
  • Bottle £24.00
    Glass £5.80
