Champagne
Champagne Laurent Perrier,
Laurent-Perrier traces its foundation to 1812 when a former cooper and bottler by the name of Alphonse Pierlot purchased two parcels of
land named "Plaisances" and "La Tour Glorieux" in Tours-sur-Marne. Pierlot willed his company to his cellar master, Eugene
Laurent, who ran it with his wife, Mathilde Emilie Perrier. Laurent Perrier Brut's style is defined by its very high proportion of
Chardonnay which provides a natural purity, freshness and elegance. The colour is a bright pale golden hue, with fine and persistent
bubbles. The nose is fresh and delicate, showing good complexity with its hints of citrus and white fruit.

Champagne Bollinger, Ay
One of the great names in Champagne, Bollinger’s pedigree and dedication to quality are second to none. The wines are dominated by
Pinot Noir and have a full bodied, powerful style. Almost exactly the opposite style to Delamotte, these wines lend itself perfectly to richer
dishes with white meat and even Game.

Germany
Germany is certainly one of the most underrated wine producing countries in the UK today. The legacy of Black Tower is still haunting German
wine as cheap and sweet. Well today there’s a lot more to German wine than this and almost all German wine is dry although Riesling has a
certain fruitiness which is sometimes mistaken for sweetness. Riesling remains German outstanding grape, rivalling white Burgundy as the
queen of wine.
Down south however, in the sun drenched vineyards of the Pfalz, Baden; Weiss and Grauburgunder (Pinot Blanc and Gris) make for utterly
drinkable food wines, always dry with beautiful fruit and fresh floral notes for the Pinot Blanc while the Pinot Gris combines the fresh, crisp
opening with a weighty, rich body. Lesser known grapes like Scheureben and Silvaner provide fresh, spicy wines with a unique character

Decoding the Enigma
One of the bigger problems for guest interested in German wines, is understanding the label. So let’s evoke the spirit of
Bletchley Park and decode the Enigma. Let’s do the easy stuff first: At the top or bottom you will find the name of the Producer,
which might be a ‘Weingut’ (Domaine), ‘Schloss’ (Chateau/Castel) or just the name of the Owner; in the left or right corner you will
find the abv – if you’re unsure about the dryness level this gives you a broad hint, up to 11% tends to be off-dry, over 11% dry. Ah,
there’s of course the Vintage as well. Now for the tricky bit. German wine law uses a two tier system for quality wines.
‘Qualitaetswein bestimmter Anbaugebiete’ (QbA) is the lower tier for wines from a certain region which meet basic quality levels,
comparable to a French generic AC (i.e. Bourgogne AC) today wines of this level are almost always dry; the higher tier is
‘Qualitaetswein mit Praedikat’ (QmP) which need to reach certain sugar levels (in the juice, not the finished wine!) and are then
awarded one of the following:
Kabinett, Spaetlese (Late Harvest), Auslese (Selection), Beerenauslese (Grape Selection), Trockenbeerenauslese (Dry Grape
Selection), Eiswein (Icewine). The label also needs to state the grape variety. A basic label would read something like Riesling Auslese
Pfalz – a Riesling made from overripe grapes (Auslese) from the region Pfalz – that’s it. Or is it?
Of course not - because this system didn’t care where the wine came from – no matter if it came from the Riesling grapes of the
famous terraced slopes of the Scharzhofberg or a from high yielding Mueller Thurgau from a potato field-cum-vineyard, as long as it
had enough sugar it could reach the highest level allowed every winemaker to produce a top end wine. So the good guys decided to
stick the name of their Grand Crus on the label as well and thus the rather long and confusing names were born and looked like this:
Riesling Auslese Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr - a Riesling Grape Selection from the ‘Sonnenuhr’ part of the ‘Juffer’ vineyard in the
Mosel village of ‘Brauneberg’. This is similar especially to the system in Burgundy and is on the same level as say a ChassagneMontrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets.
Are we there yet – almost. With the demand for dry wines growing during the late 80’s and early 90’s the VdP, which represents
Germanys 200 leading winemakers, decided to introduce the designation of ‘Erstes Gewaechs’ (Rheingau) or‘Grosses Gewaechs’ (all
other areas). These wines can only be made from vineyards which has been classified as Grand Cru vineyards and are always dry .
These labels would read Grauburgunder Grosses Gewaechs Ihringer Winkleberg – a Pinot Gris (Grauburgunder) Grand Cru (Grosses
Gewaechs) from the Winklerberg vineyard in the village of ihringen.
And that’s German Wine Labels decoded – easy wasn’t it?
White wine
Burgundy
Burgundy provides the greatest Chardonnays in the world, indeed they are only rivalled by the Rieslings of the Mosel for the Crown of white
wines. Yet the myriads of terroir in this region account for a great variety of style. In the centre the Cote d’Or with it’s big, rich wines which
require some time in the cellar to reach the pinnacle of Burgundy with their full, fat (that’s a good thing) body and rich, deep layers of
flavour. The Maconnais and Chalonnais to the south make for fresh, lighter whites which can – and should - be enjoyed young. Finally, some
100 miles north of Beaune, Chablis there’s a unique style of Chardonnay with vibrant, crystal clear fruit and minerality.

Alsace
Alsace is an ambivalent country, for centuries disputed between France and Germany it makes wines as unique as the country itself within
France. For a start grape variety features on the label, which can be easily mistaken for German labels. The labels maybe but not the wines –
big personalities, rich and full with ripe fruit these wines are made –and need- food to really shine.

Loire
Stretched along the River Loire, the eponymous region is divided into three distinct areas. To the east Sancerre and Pouilly Fume, the ancestral
home of Sauvignon Blanc with its crisp, flinty wines with subtle tropical fruit. In the centre Touraine and Anjou where Chenin Blanc gives
aromatic and delicious whites with the great off dry to sweet Vouvrays at the top. In the west, where the Loire meets the Atlantic Ocean, a
very different style again. Muscadet makes for fresh, crisp wine perfect with the seafood served here. Sevre et Mains is the appellation with
the highest quality, especially ‘sur lie’ where lees ageing ads complexity to the wines.

Germany
With the export focus set on Riesling and a strong domestic demand it is little wonder that these wines are virtually unknown outside
Germany. High demand and low production keeps prices up but fortunately the quality is high as well. Most producers aim for the
Burgundian style, especially in Baden where the climate and soil is comparable. These wines combine lovely rich red fruit and subtle,
well integrated oak to wines tailor- made for food. The Blauschifer, from blue slate soil in the northern region of the Ahr has a more
mineral twist to it, refreshing at first and increasingly complex over time.

Zweigelt is one of Austria’s star varieties. Grown on the steep terraces in wachau and matured in large oak casks, this fruit

Bollinger La Cote aux Enfants, Coteaux Champenoise
2002
£110
Not your usual champagne, this is a 100% Pinot Noir still wine from Champagne. La Cote aux Enfants is a one of Bollinger’s Grand
Cru Vineyards in Ay. The grape bunches are harvested by hand at their optimal ripeness, which involves a number of visits to the
vineyard. It is an impression of the still wines that made Champagne famous even before the creation of sparkling wine was possible.
Beaujolais
Although technically part of Burgundy in the north, the Beaujolais is very different in style. Gamay rather than Pinot Noir is the
main variety here. Ignore the infamous Beaujolais Nouvau, and you will find great wines. Fruit driven with meaty notes and full
bodied, these are easy drinking food wines.

Burgundy
This is the kingdom of Pinot Noir and it is here that this notoriously difficult grape reaches its pinnacle. Elegance rather than power
is the watchword here and these wines can be a bit deceptive at first with their rather pale colour and subtle flavours. But give them
some time and team them with the right food and it is clear why these are the worlds’ greatest red wines. Never cheap but get the
right ones – and I believe we did – and you will experience the magic of Burgundy. The wines of the Cote de Beaune tend to be more
delicate while the Cote de Nuit makes fuller, richer wines.

Bordeaux
Bordeaux is without doubt the most famous wine growing area in the world, its’ leading Chateaux and the annual en-primeur
campaign the highlight in many wine lovers book. Yet amongst all the hype around the top Chateaux and their collectors and the
succession of outstanding, ‘once in a century’ vintages it is easy to forget that Bordeaux is more than just a millionaire’s playground.
Great wines at moderate prices can be found lower than the hierarchy and – from quality producers – in lesser years. On the left bank
Cabernet Sauvignon dominates the blend which requires a bit more aging to soften the tannins and bring the wines in balance while
the Merlot dominated wines from the right bank with their more fruit driven character can be enjoyed a bit earlier. And while most
Bordeaux today can be drunk young, especially from the Cotes de Bordeaux, the true ‘greats’ of Bordeaux can be found in the well
matured wines which are indeed in a class of their own.

Similar to the white wines, each sub region has its’ signature variety. In Sancerre Pinot Noir makes for light, fruity wines with a distinct
minerality. In the Anjou-Saumur region Cabernet Franc makes for elegant wines, a bit wild and tannic when young, smooth and with finesse
when matured.

Rhone
This region is split in two. In the north the vineyards run in a narrow band of steep slopes along the Rhone. Syrah is almost exclusively used
with Hermitage and Cote Rotie the finest and rarest examples of these big and impressive wines. After 60 miles of vine-less country the
vineyards spread out in the flat countryside of the southern Rhone. The town of Chateauneuf-du-Pape is at its centre. Thirteen varieties are
most commonly used with Grenache, Mourverde and Syrah the most important ones.

Spain
Probably the most exciting wine making country in Europe at the moment. While Rioja remains the most famous and widely recognised area,
innovative wine makers combine modern wine making techniques with traditional varieties with stunning results. Modern, fruit forward
Riojas such as Artadi as well as rich, succulent Grenaches from old vines such as El Puno, made by Scotsman Hamish Robertson, are now as
much ‘typical Spain’ as the traditional, great Riojas such as Castillo Ygay.

hallmarks of a truly great wine.

Half Bottles
We believe you should taste as many different wines as possible and why not enjoy a white and a red with your meal? But sometimes the
prospect of two bottles is a bit daunting or one of you loves red but the other is in the mood for white. The solution is here. Our half bottle
selection is as carefully put together as the “full” bottle list. We aim to create an interesting and diverse listing and will continue to evolve
this section.

Half bottles - maturity & quality
There is a perception that wine in half bottle doesn’t mature well or that the quality is inferior to regular bottles. There is some truth in
this but – as most things connected to wine – it is not that simple. The quality is certainly equal when bottled, but the wine is slightly
more prone to be damaged by poor storage. It is also true that half bottles tend to mature faster than in larger formats. The good side
is that certain wines are earlier accessible than their bigger brothers; the 2009 Bordeaux & Burgundies above have already been
drinking well for 1 or 2 years while the full bottles are only now coming into their own. It is also more important to do regular tasting of
half bottles to keep track of the development. Because of we take even more care in choosing the wines for our half bottle selection.
We source all our half bottles from our most trusted suppliers who in turn buy direct from the producers cellar, we taste before we buy
and once in our cellar we regularly re-taste to check their development. With a bit of care and dedication when buying and storing half
bottles, there is no reason why they shouldn’t be enjoyed as much as any other format.

Sherries, Ports & Dessert Wines
Three of the truly great kind of wines in the world yet they all struggle to overcome consumers preconception of them. While Port has a loyal
following it can’t be denied that it is widely regarded as a “season” drink to go with Christmas pudding or to be served at special occasions
usually involving the queen or a regimental dinner. But there's more to it than just this and a bottle of Vintage port is a delight that everyone
should savour at least once in a while.
