Rhône & Languedoc, France

Hot sun & the 'Garrigue' (herb-laden scrubland) give these wines their true personality. The Syrah/Grenache based Rhône wines have pepper, spice, stewed plums & occasionally, a slightly gamey edge whereas the wines of the Languedoc are full of ripe black fruit & a firm mineral finish.

£27.5

Pinot Noir Moulin De Gassac

Languedoc

Bordeaux, South West, France

These are wines of individuality & 'Terroir' as such lend themselves to being drunk with food. From the simple Château Deville (an amazing vintage…), to the more Cabernet-dominated Médoc, to the juicy Merlot fruit-driven wines of St-Emilion & Pomerol. Don’t overlook the earthy Cahors for rustic value.

Loire, Beaujolais & Burgundy

Beaujolais is all about the juicy fruited Gamay grape, lively cherry notes & fruit forward style. Characteristics shared with its Loire counterpart the Gamay de Touraine – drink lightly chilled, exceptional for the pure expression of fruit. For the distinguished fresh violet aromas of Cabernet Franc enjoy the delightful Saumur-Champigny.

Italy & Spain

Italy & Spain are home to some of the oldest wine producing regions in the world. For those willing to over-come the multitude of regions, un-familiar grape varieties & occasionally awkward pronunciations, some truly great rewards await…. Probably our favorite section of the menu.

New World

When the two common pitfalls of too much oak & alcohol are avoided, the New World can produce elegant, balanced & delicious wines offering some sheer unadulterated drinking joy! Two simple but well made staples, Chilean Merlot and an Aussie Shiraz Cab give bright fruit and fresh spice. For red meats try a pair of Argentinean’s, both organic with berry fruit, herbs and green tannins. At the top of the list heavenly Pinot Noir from New Zealand, a country that knows how to treat this most regal of grapes.
