White Wines

Light, Crisp and Refreshing
These wines are of the taste-bud tingling variety, a really lively, mouth-watering selection that make perfect partners with fish and shellfish. Our Sauvignon Blanc comes from way down in the South of France where the oysters practically leap out of The Mediterranean onto your plate, absolutely delicious! Delicate Chenin Blanc is always an easy-drinking option but if you feel like something a li”le different they why not try the sensational Gaillac Blanc, it is the perfect wine for dry white lovers: crisp and fresh yet with plenty of character and fruit.

1. Pinot Grigio, Viala (Italy) 175ml £4.35 / £15.50
2. Sauvignon Blanc, Henri de Richemer (France) 175ml £4.35 / £15.50
3. Chenin Blanc, Neil Joubert (South Africa) 175ml £4.35 / £15.50
4. Muscadet sur Lie, Château de la Cormerais (Loire Valley) £17.65
5. Gaillac Blanc, Château Clement!Termes (Regional France) £19.85
6. Sauvignon Touraine, Guy Allion (Loire Valley) £21.00
7. Vernaccia di San Gimignano (Italy) £23.50

Elegant and Mineral
A selection of beautifully pure, unoaked wines that are absolutely perfect to accompany grilled fish dishes or simply to enjoy on their own. Stylish wines that reflect the quality of the “terroir” on which the vines are raised. Chablis is always popular and ours comes from a small family producer, traditionally made, wonderfully steely and refreshing. Spain’s answer to Chablis is Albariño, a really popular grape variety with a li”le more body than its french counterpart and well worth a try. If Sauvignon is more your cup of tea (so to speak) then our subtle, elegant Sancerre from the delightfully passionate (about winemaking!) Philippe Raimbault is an absolute must.

8. Chardonnay ‘The Navigator’, Robert Oatley (Margaret River, W. Australia) £25.75
9. Chablis, Domaine Fourrey (Burgundy) £27.75
10. Sancerre, Domaine Raimbault (Loire Valley) £33.00
11. Albariño, San Campio (Spain) £34.50
12. Pouilly Fumé, Cuvée d’Eve, Jean!Claude Dagueneau (Loire Valley) £39.75

New World Sauvignon Blanc
Lively, fresh and full of fruit, this group of ‘zippy’ whites is so popular it needs a slot all of its own. A sensational discovery is our Seven Springs Sauvignon from a newly established, up-and-coming vineyard in South Africa, bursting with fruit and full of character, it really has the ‘wow’ factor and is great with seafood. If you prefer a more traditional style then opt for the New Zealand Little Beauty from Marlborough, a really classy wine and winner of double gold medals, crafted by the former winemaker of Cloudy Bay.

13. Urban Sauvignon Blanc, Fournier (Chile) £19.95
14. Sauvignon Blanc, Seven Springs (South Africa) £27.50
15. Sauvignon Blanc, Little Beauty (Marlborough, New Zealand) £32.50

Off!dry, Aromatic and Floral
If you are looking for something to match a slightly spicy dish, then these are the wines for you. With instant aromatic appeal on the nose, Torres Esmeralda is wonderfully perfumed on the palate and has a long, lingering finish, sublime with all things oriental. A li”le more delicate is the Villa Wolf dry Riesling with its floral bouquet and citrusy ‘edge’. But for a luscious, flavoursome, mouth-filling star, our lovely Alsatian ‘gewur#’ has lashings of ripe fruit flavours and a really elegant, spicy off-dry finish.

16. Chardonnay/Torrontes, Las Manitos (Argentina) 175ml £4.35 / £15.50
17. Torres Esmeralda Moscatel/Gewurtztraminer (Spain) £19.95
18. Dry Riesling, Villa Wolf (Germany) £22.50
19. Blanc de Mer, Bouchard Finlayson (Walker Bay, South Africa) £24.50
20. Riesling, Framingham (Marlborough, New Zealand) £28.50
21. Gewurtztraminer, Réné Scherer (Alsace) £32.75

Complex and Classic
A multi-layered, serious gathering of white Burgundies, these luscious Chardonnays really linger on the palate and get the tastebuds dancing. Always a crowd-pleaser, Macon Lugny is well known and never disappoints. For something a li”le different, our St. Veran is full of character and sumptuous fruit that develops and fascinates with every sip. If you are in the mood for a real ‘spoil’ then Domaine Larue’s great Puligny offers a ‘millefeuille’ of aromas and flavours, a wine with a serious pedigree for that special occasion.

22. Macon Villages, Florières, Caves de Lugny (Burgundy) £21.95
23. St. Veran, Domaine Le Moulin du Pont (Burgundy) £29.95
24. Chablis, Premier Cru, Côtes de Lechet, Domaine Fourrey (Burgundy) £36.50
25. Meursault, Les Grands Charrons, Domaine Guy Bocard (Burgundy) £59.50
26. Chassagne Montrachet, Les Blanchots Dessous, Coffinet!Duvernay £62.00
27. Puligny Montrachet, Premier Cru, Sous Les Puits, Domaine Larue (Burgundy) £69.50

Rose Wines

No longer just a ‘girlie’ tipple, rosé wines are really deserving of their own section nowadays. Most fashionable currently is all-time favourite pinot grigio in its pink form, perfect as an apéritif or with seafood dishes, with a li”le sunshine thrown in for preference. Our Léger 11 offers a lower alcohol alternative yet still has plenty of fruit and flavour, made from 100% Syrah. Still winning awards is the Sancerre from Domaine Raimbault, famously served at the milestone birthday of a certain

“X Factor” judge.
28. Leger 11, Syrah, Henri de Richemer (France) 175ml £4.35 / £15.50
29. Pinot Grigio, Botter (Italy) £17.50
30. Sancerre Rosé, Domaine Raimbault (Loire Valley) £29.50

Red Wines

Easy Drinking, Lighter Styles
Sometimes you fancy a glass of red but nothing too heavy and that’s when this lighter style group of wines comes into its own. Tempranillo is such a user-friendly grape variety it never fails to please and falls into the ‘good with everything’ category. An all time favourite of ours is the artisan-produced Gamay that is deliciously fruity with just a hint of spice and very easy-drinking, a great one to choose if you fancy red with fish. If you really can’t decide then try our gentle merlot from Chile that is really soft, smooth and very more-ish.

31. Tempranillo, Castillo del Moro (Spain) £15.50
32. Merlot, Finca el Picador (Chile) £15.50
33. Bardolino Classico, Zonin (Italy) £17.95
34. Klippenkop Pinotage (Paarl, South Africa) £21.00
35. Ara, Pinot Noir (Marlborough, New Zealand) £27.50
36. Gamay, Raisin Gaulois (Beaujolais) £27.50
37. Joseph Faiveley, Pinot Noir (Burgundy) £28.50

Warm and Spicy
If your heart is in Italy then our cherried Chianti is the wine to evoke memories of a Tuscan terrace: smooth, voluptuous and full of ripe fruit, a real stunner. A recent addition from down under, the Robert Oatley Shiraz is a real blockbuster, bursting with brambley fruit that is rounded by generous, soft tannins. From the rising star producers Jean-Francois Dauvergne and Francois Ranvier, our Côtes du Rhône is an absolute gem, simply dripping with pure syrah fruit and a generous spicy finish, delicious.

38. Shiraz/Malbec, Las Manitos (Argentina) 175ml £4.35 / £15.50
39. Rioja Crianza, Coelus (Spain) 175ml £5.75 / £22.50
40. Côtes du Rhône, Dauvergne Ranvier (Rhône Valley) £22.95
41. Shiraz ‘The Navigator’, Robert Oatley (Western Australia) £25.50
42. Cathar, Roble (Ribera del Duero, Spain) £28.50
43. Peppoli Chianti Classico, Antinori (Italy) £34.50

Fine and Classic
Whether your preference is for Rioja, Bordeaux or Burgundy, we have chosen excellent examples from our favourite communes or growers to appeal to serious winelovers. Each wine is an archetypal demonstration of its ‘appellation’ or region. Our Brouilly is from a Beaujolais specialist, you will find it traditional and wellstructured with good backbone and lovely fruit, also delicious served chilled. Henri Delagrange is a true rising star of Burgundy, his Volnay is an absolute delight, lovingly crafted with fruit from old vines, probably our best find yet!

44. Brouilly, Crêt des Garanches (Beaujolais) £29.50
45. St. Emilion, Château Treytins (Bordeaux) £33.00
46. Rioja Reserva, Marques de Murrieta (Spain) £39.95
47. Volnay, Vieilles Vignes, Henri Delagrange 2009 (Burgundy) £53.50
48. Boyd Cantenac, Margaux 2002 (Bordeaux) £79.50
49. Château Gruaud Larose, St. Julien 2003 (Bordeaux) £88.00

Full and Flavoursome
When you are in the mood for some good, solid flavour, these big, bold wines will happily stand up to a robust meaty dish and really warm the cockles of your heart. Château Vaugelas is a new ‘find’ and this spicy, fruitful blend of grenache, carignan and mourvedre is a seriously ‘foodie’ wine, asking for some intensely flavoured food to enhance its generous character. An immensely powerful blend, our Châteauneuf du Pape works perfectly with game in all its guises, real power combined with style and elegance, from one of the great names of the Rhône Valley. For a less complex but nonetheless satisfying red, Henri de Richemer in the South of France produce a pure, unadulterated Cabernet that is a real hit with us and “does what it says on the tin”.

50. Cabernet Sauvignon, Henri de Richemer (France) 175ml £4.35 / £15.50
51. Los Vascos, Cabernet Sauvignon, Rothschild (Chile) £23.75
52. Carmenère Reserva, La Poda Corta (Chile) £24.50
53. Château Vaugelas, “V” (Corbières) £32.50
54. Châteauneuf du Pape, Télégramme, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe (Rhône) £52.50

Chapagne

Naturally, the classic names speak for themselves whether you were brought up on “The Widow” or baptised with “Bolli” one of them will, no doubt, have a special meaning for you and bring back happy memories of celebrations with family and friends. The familiar dumpy bo!le of L.P. rosé is always appealing and provides us with a pre!y glass of bubbles that is full of strawberry and raspberry flavours with a wonderfully subtle colour. Our delicious Champagne Joseph Perrier has a very appealing, biscuity style with a toasty nose and fine, elegant mousse. JP is a classic blend of the holy trinity: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and very highly thought of across The Channel.

55. Gruet, n.v. ( as served in the European Parliament!) £36.50
56. Joseph Perrier, Cuvée Royale, n.v. £42.50
57. Veuve Clicquot, Yellow Label, brut, n.v. £54.50
