18 Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve   Mareuil-sur-Aÿ  N.V.   85.00 
  Family-owned, Billecart Brut Réserve is a fine, light and elegant Champagne; a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay & Pinot Meunier, sourced from the best sites in Champagne, with a quality second to none.     
 21 Billecart-Salmon Brut Sous Bois   Mareuil-sur-Aÿ     N.V.    100.00
  This unique cuvée (a third each of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier & Pinot Noir), entirely vinified in oak, is a virtuoso example of subtle barrel-aging. A radiant yellow colour with a super-fine mousse and a creamy palate balanced with bracing vivacity.     
 15 Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut   Epernay   N.V.  110.00 
  Renowned for delicacy and elegance, with lovely balance between fruit aromas and light bready, yeast notes.     
20 Pol Roger Réserve    Epernay


  One of the fuller and fruitier styles, this is an old favourite here. Blended from an equal proportion of the three permitted varieties, to give a rounded and very sippable glass of wine.    
25 Louis Roederer Brut Premier   Reims N.V. 120.00
  Although best known for Cristal, Roederer’s N.V. is one of the very best. A fuller style that carries its fruit with great elegance.    
26 Bollinger Special Cuvée Brut   Aÿ N.V. 125.00
  Bollinger make a unique and hand-crafted wine with attention to detail from the vine to the cellar. A fuller style that benefits from ageing in old oak barrels.    
23 Veuve Cliquot Ponsardin   Reims N.V. 130.00
  It’s hard to say anything more about this grandest of the Champagne Grande Marques.  A full, almost rich, style is produced consistently by using a high proportion of Pinot Noir.    
22 Jacquesson Cuvée no. 741 Brut   Epernay N.V. 145.00
  This small house was recently named as the third best in Champagne (behind Krug and Bollinger) by the influential magazine La Revue du vin de France. The 741 refers to the number of blends the house has put together since 1798 and is updated with every release.    



 Bin     Year    £  
  Billecart-Salmon   Mareuil-sur-Aÿ   2007   195.00 
 19   Lovely vintage wine only ever produced in very small quantities. Youthful, with a rich fruit character and very delicate bubble structure.     
24 Pol Roger Brut   Epernay  2008 270.00
  One of the few remaining independent Grande Marques left in Champagne. Bright and fruity, with a delightful brioche nose and a clean, broad palate.     
31  Billecart-Salmon Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart  Mareuil-sur-Aÿ  2002  280.00
  One of Billecart’s top wines and possibly the best in their portfolio (and really as good as anything else in Champagne). Generous and powerful, whilst retaining restraint and elegance; the epitome of fine Champagne.    
37 Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs   Taittinger     Reims 2006 295.00
  Now back in the hands of the family, Taittinger’s Comte is on a roll, and this is one of the best. Rich, but with an ethereal lightness and persistence on the palate.     
34 Dom Perignon   Möet et Chandon   Epernay 2006 325.00
  For many, the most prestigious of all prestige cuvées, blending 65% Chardonnay, 27% Pinot Noir and 8% Pinot Meunier. Rich aromas of intense fresh citrus fruits, with nicely rounded biscuity acidity.    
35 Clos Des Goisses   Philipponnat    Mareuil-sur-Aÿ 2004 350.00
  A rarity, one of only a handful of vineyard & site-specific, terroir- driven, wines to be produced in Champagne. Seldom seen and only really known to aficionados, this is one of the greatest Champagnes you will ever try.    
36 Salon   Mesnil-sur-Oger 1996 460.00
  One of the great names in Champagne, Salon make only this one wine, a Blanc de Blancs; only releasing it in exceptional vintages. A classic 1996 with crisp acidity; now starting to unveil its huge potential.     
29 Perrier-Jouet Belle Époque   Epernay  2008 475.00
  An elegant Champagne that celebrates the artistic past of this great house. The famous bottle, with its swirl of white flowers, echoes the delicate floral style of the wine, with aromas of honeysuckle, magnolia, pear & peach.    
33 Krug   Reims 2000 550.00
  In a hot year that had many Champagne houses shying away from creating a vintage blend, 2000 saw Krug seize the opportunity to create this powerful, expressive Champagne, full of citrus peel, honey, brioche and candied apple character.    
39 Louis Roederer Cristal   Reims 2009 575.00
  Once produced in crystal bottles for Tsar Alexander II, this wine offers sublime aromas of honeyed apple, toasted peaches, vanilla and honeysuckle.    
  Please note that our vintage Champagnes bins 33, 36 & 44 are chilled to order.    


  Champagne Rose    
 Bin    Year £
  Billecart-Salmon Rosé   Mareuil-sur-Aÿ N.V. 120.00
46 Consistently great non-vintage rosé, from this wonderful small house. Strawberry-scented with ultra fine bubbles.    
43 Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé   Epernay N.V. 180.00
  Bright and creamy, with a lovely bubble structure and red fruit profile. Probably the best N.V. rosé on the market right now.    
44 Dom Perignon Rosé Brut    Moet et Chandon   Epernay    
  Very rare wine from a great vintage. The sheer quality of D.P. rosé will be blatantly obvious to anyone fortunate enough to taste it.  2002   850.00 


  Demi-Sec Champagne    
 Bin     Year   £ 
45 Billecart-Salmon Demi-Sec  Mareuil-sur-Aÿ N.V.  125.00 
  This sweet and rich wine has the same cepagé as the brut, but with an elevated dosage. Full-flavoured with a fine balance between sugar, alcohol and acidity, this is a superb accompaniment to for desserts with a subtle sweetness.    


Bin   Year               


62 Chateuu Clark Listrac 2012 75.00
  One of the lesser-known properties owned by the Rothschild family, Clarke offers extremely good drinking for its price. Beautifully structured with a great generosity of fruit.    
63 Château Cantemerle  2012 100.00  
  5ème Cru Classé    
  Cantemerle is situated in Macau in the Southern Médoc and has a reputation for elegance.  This is fine, light and ethereal claret with unmistakable class.    
58 Château Roc de Cambes 2011 250.00
  Côtes de Bourg    
  Francois Mitjavile of Chateau Le Tertre-Rôteboeuf uses the same techniques here as in his far more expensive St-Émilion property, with equally impressive results. Very rich and lavish, yet still fundamentally Bordelaise in style.    



Bin   Year  £
59 Château Barrail du Blanc 2015   80.00
  Grand Cru    
  This tiny property, just three hectares in size, is located in Saint Sulpice de falevrons, planted on rather light, well-drained soils. Such terroir makes for generous & easy drinking wines, at every stage of maturity.    
64 Clos Canon 


  Grand Cru Classé    
  This is the second wine of Château Canon and under the ownership of the fashion house Chanel the quality has risen here in parallel with massive investment. Made from young vines during the properties replanting, this is a great wine from the superlative '10 vintage    
67 Château Beauséjour Duffau-Lagarrosse 1998 200.00
  1er Grand Cru Classé    
  A very good offering from this oft excellent property. The ninety-eight vintage was a strong one on the right bank and this is a lovely mature wine with a developed autumnal character.    
66 Chapelle d'Ausone 2007 300.00
  Grand Cru Classé    
  This is the ultra-rare second wine of Ausone, one of the greatest estates in Bordeaux. Made from young wines in a rich, serious and deliciously accessible style.    
70 Château Ausone  1998 540.00
  1er Grand Cru Classé (A)    
  The only other St-Emilion to be classified as on a par with Cheval Blanc. A big bruiser of a wine, built for the long haul.    
72  Château Ausone  1989 550.00
  1er Grand Cru Classé (A)    
  Once an obscurity pursued by the connoisseur, Ausone is now one of the hottest properties in Bordeaux. This is tough by the standards of the vintage amd will help cement the Chateau's cerebral reputation.    
69 Château Cheval Blanc 1995 975.00
  1er Grand Cru Classé (A)    
  A great Cheval Blanc and certainly one of the best wines made here in the nineties. A powerful bouquet of plum, blackcurrant and blackberry with roasted notes of coffee, with hints of leather and truffle at it comes of age.    
68 Château Cheval Blanc  1985 995.00
  1er Grand Cru Classé (A)    
  The eighty-fives have always been seen as pretty, but possibly a bit short term. This however is first class; up there with the great Cheval Blancs. Mature and quite lavish on the nose and palate, with no rough edges.    


Pomerol & Lalande-de Pomerol

 Bin   Year  £
 76 Châtaeu Gazin 2008 165.00
  Gazin is a large estate by Pomerol's standards, so lovers of the region will find it good to hear that the quality is steadily on the rise. Very fine and luscious wine, with enough structure to go the distance.    
 77 Pensées de Lafleur 2008   400.00  
  Not quite the second wine of the legendary Chateau Lafleur as since 1999 this has been made from a specific clay-rich plot of the Lafleur vineyard. Soft, gentle and harmonious whilst still rich, this is close to perfection.     
 75 Château Petrus 1995 3000.00
  A great Petrus; one of the best wines made here in the nineties and indeed a candidate for the wine of the (rather good!) vintage. This has always been a big wine and has taken time to near its drinking plateau but has not failed to impress on arrival.    
79 Le Pin 1989 3500.00
  Le Pin now ranks alongside Petrus as Bordeaux's most expensive wine. This is one of the estates finest releases, 100% Merlot, exotically perfumed (coconut, clove & rich black fruits) with a firm structure for ageing.    
80 Château Petrus 1989 5000.00  
  Very serious Petrus from the wonderfully approachable 1989 vintage. Starting to open up beautifully now, like the 1990 a blockbuster wine, intense, rich and massively concentrated.    
81 Château Petrus  1990 6000.00
  One of the finest wines ever to be produced at Petrus, or for that matter, all of Pomerol. A big, black, viscous glass of wine, this exhibits huge amounts of ripe, black, almost caramelised fruits on the nose and lots of rich multi-layered fruit, tannin and rich oak on the palate.    


Pessac Leognan & Graves

Bin   Year £
83 Châtaeu Couhins 2010 90.00
  Cru Classé    
  Elegant on the nose and palate, with a harmonious aromatic complexity. Chateau Couhins exemplifies the refinement and long-lasting power of the top wines from Graves.    
85 Château Haut-Bailly 2006   195.00  
  Cru Classé    
  From one of the top tiers of Pessac producers, with a great track record for consistency. Stylistically things are underplayed; silky rather than monumental, though not insubstantial.    
84 Château La Mission Haut-Brion 2003 450.00
  Cru Classé    
  One of the finest estates in Bordeaux and often on par with its sister property Haut-Brion. Forward wine from a warm vintage, that's drinking extremely well now.    
87 Châtaeu La Mission Haut-Brion 1995 700.00
  Cru Classé    
  This big, structured wine is built for the long haul and is now starting to drink well.    
88 Châtaeu Haut-Brion  1995 800.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  Of all the First Growths Haut-Brion matures quickest, yet lasts the pace with the best. Rich and complex on the nose with aromas of wood-fire smoke, blackcurrant and plum, with the depth and elegance that typifies this wine.    
89 Château Haut-Brion  1996 900.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  A very classically structured wine from one of the best vintages of the nineties. Tightly concentrated, with lovely balance; rewarding now and for the long haul; displaying a luxuriant nose of tobacco, black fruits and dried herbs.    
90 Château Haut-Brion  1998 950.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  Very good Haut-Brion from a vintage that excelled on the right bank and in Pessac-Leognan. Typically elegant with a ripeness of fruit in the middle, only found in the estates finest wines, while sweet black fruits, black olives, cinnamon, smoke and earth dominate the nose.    



Bin   Year  £
92 La Dame de Montrose 2012 110.00  
  As Montrose has risen in status and quality so has this superb second wine. Full and rich, with the delightful elegance associated with this vintage.    
94 Château Lafon-Rochet 2009   150.00
  4ème Cru Classé    
  The road to greatness has been a long and winding one at Lafon-Rochet, but the vinous equivalent of the emerald city appears to be in sight. A very appealing wine, in the classic style of this great vintage, now maturing beautifully.    
98 Château Cos d-Estournel 1995 400.00
  2ème Cru Classé    
  Since Druno Prats too over wine-making here in 1978, the quality has soared, making this a true 'super-second' growth. The high proportion of Merlot used imbues a fatness not usually associated with the Médoc, well-demonstrated by this lip-smacking '95.    




Bin   Year £
115 Château Batailley 2012 130.00
  5ème Cru Classé    
  Once considered a bit of an under-performer compared with its more aristocratic neighbour, Batailley now punches its weight in classic Pauillac style. Young and focused with a rich cigar box aroma.    
109   Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2006   185.00  
  5ème Cru classé    
  Although eclipsed by the first growths and super seconds Grand-Puy-Lacoste epitomises all that is great about Pauillac. Drinking well now, this is elegant and mature.    
111 Château Pontet-Canet 2008 250.00
  5ème Cru Classé    
  Pontet is one of the hottest properties in Bordeaux bar none and this superb '08 is a candidate for wine of the vintage. Rich and full-bodied with an abundance of dark fruit and lively freshness keeping things interesting.    
124 Château Lafite-Rothschild 1997 950.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  Lafite has become one of the most traded and sought after of all the first growths, as the market recognises the leaps in quality made here since the early nineties. Lafite have produced a grand effort here, from the slightly underwhelming 1997 vintage.    
125 Château Lafite-Rothschild 1990 1300.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  This wine typifies the style and complexity of a grand Bordeaux though still in its infancy.    
121 Château Mouton-Rothschild 1998 1400.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  A great wine from an insider's vintage and probably the best Mouton of the nineties.  Typically firm for the vintage, but with a super-ripe core of fruit now overcoming some serious tannin.    
119 Château Latour 1995 1400.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  A magnificent Latour still in the early stages of its very long drinking window. Classically proportioned with everything in the right place, thisis possibly the wine of the vintage, as is often the case with Latour.    
120 Château Latour  1990 1750.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  A monumental wine, just ready for those who like their Claret concentrated, yet suavely balanced. Classic Latour with the richness and power you would expect, now entering maturity with a great degree of elegance.    
118  Château Latour  2000 2000.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  Once again Latour produces possibly the finest wines of this excellent vintage. A very serious Cabernet-dominated effort that is at the start of its drinking window (this is from the 2016 release).    
122 Château Lafite-Rothschild 1986 2000.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  An awesome wine that is drinking surprisingly well given the rather austere nature of the vintage, in fact it's hard to imagine it getting much better. Massively fruity, with an almost regal opulence, with supple, rather than hard tannins.    
123 Château Mouton-Rothschild 1982 2500.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  One of the greatest Moutons ever, still remarkably youthful and adolescent rather than fully mature. A rich and opulent, perfectly open now after a fairly long tannic slumber.    



Bin   Year  £
128 Château Kirwan 2012 125.00
  3ème Cru Classé    
  A strong candidate for most-improved Château, Kirwan has proved to be a consistent best buy in Margaux for over a decade. Medium weight and savoury this is a decent example from this cool vintage.    
126   Ségla 2010   130.00  
  This is the excellent second wine from Rauzan-Ségla; an estate vastly improved under the custodianship of Chanel. Properly proportioned from a vintage of the first order and drinking very well now.    
130  Château Rauzan-Ségla 2005 395.00
  2ème Cru Classé    
  This is probably the first truly great wines to be made here in the modern era. Now up there with Palmer and Margaux itself, this is deep and powerful, with the sophistication expected from a Margaux.    
132 Château Palmer 2004 695.00
  3ème Cru Classé    
  Palmer is a third growth usually thought of as one fo the super-seconds and these days produces wines to rival the firsts. A beautiful Palmer showing the great elegance that could be achieved in this very under-rated vintage.    
133 Château Margaux  1998 950.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  From an overlooked vintage that has gained plaudits over time, this is a great Margaux. Medium-bodied, richly perfumed, this has a voluptuous touch; definitely not a tannic behemoth.    
134 Château Margaux 1995 1000.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  After an inauspicious start, the nineties produced a series of decent vintages beginning with the excellent 1995. Margaux excelled in this year and this is first growth claret in all of its majesty.    


Bordeaux White

Bin     Year £
143 Blanc de Lynch-Bages 2017   160.00  
  A very good example of the rare white from this rare white from this top-flight Pauillac estate. A fine pear-scented nose shows hints of citrus, with a lovely lively finish on the palate.    


Sauternes & Barsac

Bin   Year £
147 Château Guiraud 2003 100.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  After a lot of time and investment Guiraud has risen from relative anonymity to become one of the finest estates in Sauternes. They are renowned for making powerful wines in a poised style, that even in hot vintages like '03 don't become too fat.    
148   Château Coutet 2001   125.00  
  1er Cru Classé    
  Coutet is one of the best estates in Barsac, whose wines have a reputation for a deft lightness. Showing well now, but with power and finesse that auger a long and bright future.    
145 Château Rieussec 2011 160.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  Since being purchased by Lafite-Rothschild in 1984 Rieussec has shown its potential as one of the finest estates in Sauternes. The style here is unashamedly opulent and supported by generous amounts of oak.    
151 Château Climens 2003 180.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  From one of the finest estates in Barsac, Climens' wines are the epitome of delicacy and complexity. This '03 is an outliner from an unusually hot vintage showing more power and concentration.    
149 Château de Fargues 1997 195.00
  1er Cru Classé    
  De Fargues was the sister estate of Yquem that remained with the Lur-Saluces family after LVMH bought its illustrious sibling. The selection here is as strict as Yquem and the élevage as lavish and lengthy, resulting in one of the finest wines in Sauternes.    
150 Château d'Yquem 1997 675.00
  1er Cru Supérieur    
  One of the finest Yquems of the nineties, starting to open up at this comparatively youthful stage. A great big wine (Yquem embraced the plus-size trend long ago) bursting with exotic scents, ranging from honeycomb to white peach.    
152 Château d'Yquem 1990 700.00
  1er Cru Supérieur    
  The last of a triumvirate of great vintages (preceded by 1988 & 1989) this behemoth is one of the richest wines ever made here.  Intensely botryised and seamlessly full; truly profound wine. (chilled to order)    

Red Wines

Bin   Year £
174 Bourgogne Rouge. Albert Bichot 2017 48.00
  A lovely Pinto Noir with a touch of firmness to it, from one of the most reputable producers in Burgundy.    
175  Nuit-St-Georges 1er Cru Clos des Porrets St Georges 2013 150.00
  Henri Gouges    
  Gouges is the top name in this village and is one of the seminal names in the history of Burgundy. The wines from this monopole vineyard are built to last like everything else made here.    
171 Chambolle-Musigny Domaine Coquard Loison-Fleurot 2015   200.00  
  With a name that hardly trips of the tongue this domain has gone from utter obscurity to critical darling in the last few years. The style here is elegant and transparent, with only light extraction and restrained use of new oak.    
172 Morey St Denis Trilogie 2015 195.00
  Hubert Lignier    
  This domain is known for its traditional approach making contemplative, rather than flashy wines. Made from three lieux-dits situated below the Grand Crus, this is elegant with some structure.    
176 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru  2011 200.00
  Domaine des Varoilles    
  The vineyards of Charmes are known for producing some of the most elegant Grand Crus around Chambertin.  A lovely wine that opens with the beautiful perfume of Pinot, backed up with depth and structure.    
179 Gevrey-Chambertin 2015 200.00
  Clause Dugat     
  Claude Dugat's diligent work over the last twenty years has made this small estate one of the top names in this famous village. With a subtle, not dominating, use of oak, this is destined to age with grace.    
177 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale 2010 225.00
  Jacques-Frederic Mugnier    
  Mugnier runs the finest estate in Chambolle-Musigny and indeed the whole of Burgundy. This monopole Nuit-St-Georges vineyard is now back in is hands after a long lease to Faively; the quality is ascendant.    
173   Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Baudes 2010 260.00
  Joseph Drouhin    
  Perhaps not as well known as its illustrious neighbours. Chambolle produces soem of the finest wines in Burgundy.  This is a first rate wine with the precision and focus that Drouhin are renowned for.    
178 Chambertin Grand Cru  2007 350.00
  Domaine Louis Remy    
  Remy's wines are known among collectors as Burgundy with a good deal of finesse. This Chambertin really knocks it out of the park offering an elegance that most wines can only dream of.    
187 Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur de Roy Dugat-Py 2014 325.00
  Bernard Dugat-Py's wines are currently among the most collectable in Burgundy, mainly as the village wines trounce all but the grandest Grand Crus. Smooth, deep and rich without ever feeling forced.    
181 Gevrey-Chambertin  1er Cru  Clos-St-Jacques 2009 350.00
  Bruno Clair    
  Bruno Clair epitomises the modern Burgundy domain and produces fine wine the length of the Côte D'Or. This is from one of the best premier cru vineyards in the Côtes de Nuits, from a softer vintage now starting to show it's depth and complexity.

  Domaine de la Romanée-Conti

185 Grands-Échézeaux  Grand Cru 2002 2250.00
  Domaine de la Romanée-Conti    
  The smaller and arguably better-sited neighbour of Échézeaux and Clos du Vougeot. Noted for having more structure than most other Grand Crus, this is a stunning example both now and for the very long term.

190 La Tâche  Grand Cru  1992 3600.00
  Domaine de la Romanée-Conti    
  Thought by many to be the finest of all red Burgundies, La Tâche excels in every element of its make-up.  On the nose a profusion of exotic, spiced aromas intermingle with the darker, extracted flavours of pure fruits and silky tannins that fill out the palate    


The Hospice de Beaune auction, established in 1851, is the World’s oldest wine auction. All the wines sold come from exclusive plots of land bequeathed to the Hospice, who in turn look after the vinification of the grapes.
Since 1999 James Thomson has been buying barrels of these exclusive wines and has made a selection available in his restaurants. After purchasing the barrels, the élevage has been overseen by the historic house of Albert Bichot, who are one of the great names in Burgundy.

  On the nose you find black fruits, liquorice, a hint of game and a lightly saline note; while the palate is supple and mid-weight, with black fruits, liquorice, truffle and leather. Elegance can be an extremely rare quality for most Mourvèdre, but patently not for this fine example    
336 Arbois Trousseau   Cuvée Les Bruyères    Lucien Aviet 2017 90.00
  Côtes du Jura    
  Very on trend right now. The wines here are light, like good Loire Cabernet Franc; focused and precise. Light with a very edgy complexity; much more to this than it’s “hipster wine” reputation may lead you to believe

  Wehlener Sonnenhur is one of the middle Mosel’s finest vineyards and Prüm produce their signature wines here. Sumptuous now and built for the long haul    
378 Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenhur 2009 120.00
  Joh Jos Prum     
  A rich but not sticky or fully botrytis wine. Full and opulent on the palate but never tiring; you may wonder why you would ever drink anything else    
376 Maximin Grünhäuser Abtsberg Riesling Auslese 2010 120.00
  Carl von Schubert     
  A very full, yet wonderfully balanced style of Auslese, from one of the greatest estates in Germany    
379 Riesling Kabinett Scharzhofberger 2011 150.00
  Egon Müller    
  Egon Müller has a good claim to be the finest estate in Germany and some of the greatest Riesling in the world. Incredible wines from Kabinett level onwards    



389 R Riesling Kabinett 2016 45.00
  August Kesseler    
  Rheingau’s wines tend to be slightly weightier than the more mineral Mosels    
390   Riesling Kabinett 2014   70.00  
  Robert Weil    
  The wines of Robert Weil have not only been the standard bearers for Rheingau for the last few decades, but also on a par with the half dozen top estates in Germany    



393   Weisser Burgunder Bienenberg Grosse Gewachs 2012   85.00  
  Bernhard Huber    
  Baden’s proximity to Alsace goes some way to explain why this Pinot Blanc is the only white wine here that’s not Riesling. A dry wine made in oak to add texture, this top estate’s best white is a sensory knock out

392   Riesling Kabinett Oberhäuser Leistenberg 2010   70.00  
  Helmut Dönnhoff produces some of Germany’s most intense, bewitching and mouth-watering wines, that mixes Rheingau body with Mosel minerality; truly compelling Riesling    
394 Riesling Auslese Monzinger Halenberg 2010 125.00
  Emrich Schonleber    

Emrich produces some of the top wines in Nahe, and today the estate stands shoulder to shoulder with the best in Germany. A beautiful Auslese of medium-weight and delicate aromatics

395 Riesling Fruhlingsplatzchen Grosse Gewachs 2010 135.00
  Emrich Schonleber    
  If you are slightly confused by Germany’s delightfully precise labelling laws prepare to be bewildered. Grosse Gewachs are grand crus or first growths denoting historic vineyards and the style resembles a dry Auslese. The result is simply gorgeous

396   Pinot “N” Spätburgunder Trocken 2015   75.00  
  August Kesseler    
  German red wine seems to be having its moment, with Pinot Noir (or Spätburgunder) getting the most serious consideration. Stylistically taut in comparison to Burgundy and well worth investigating.     



397   Spätburgunder Bienenberg “R” Grosse Gewachs 2015   145.00  
  Bernhard Huber    
  Bernhard Huber is rated as one of the top ten estates in Germany and possibly the best in Baden. This is world-class Pinot Noir from great terroir, that would be the envy of anyone

521   Grüner Veltliner Kamptaler Terrassen   Weingut Bründlmayer 2015   60.00

523 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd  Dürnsteiner Liebenberg   F.X.Pichler  2013 100.00
  Great wine from one of the steepest and least accessible vineyards in the Wachau. Fine and mineral, with the extra mid-palate weight you would hope for in a Smaragd style    
524 Riesling Smaragd   Loibenberg   Weingut Knoll 2008 100.00
  Knoll are right up there with the best in Wachau, with decent holdings in the best vineyards. The style here is tight and concentrated with depth and power, whilst avoiding being tiring or over-exuberant    
525 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd ‘M’    F.X Pichler  2015 175.00
  F.X. Pichler is the biggest name in the Wachau and has trail-blazed the international perception of the region. The ‘M’ selection Grüners are made from the best grapes in the finest plots and are hedonistic brews    
526 Riesling Smaragd   Unendlich    F.X Pichler  2009 275.00
  Perhaps the world’s finest dry Riesling, certainly Austria’s. Superlatives aplenty for this stunning wine

653 Armador Syrah   Odfjell 2018 39.00
  Maipo Valley    
  Syrah is the current in-thing in Chile, with interesting wines appearing from most regions. This is styled in the manner of the Northern Rhône rather than Australia, from a winery that maintains an enviable lightness of touch in their wines    
654   Carmenère   Montes Alpha 2018   40.00  
  Colchagua Valley    
  Carmenère was once thought to be Merlot when planted in Chile, but now has the potential to be one of the county’s premium varieties. Well-balanced and savoury wine, with ample fruit and a fresh, structured palate    
656 Zardoz Cabernet Sauvignon    Indomita 2016 65.00
  Maipo Valley    
  Maipo is one of the oldest regions for wine production in Chile and is responsible for most of its great Cabernets. This is a big wine from an ambitious young winery, that would give most of the “icon” joint ventures a run for their money.    
657 Maipo Grand Cru   Caballo Loco 2014 90.00
  Maipo Valley

663 Estate Malbec   Pulenta 2016 65.00
  After a few false starts Argentinean Malbec now seems to be worthy of its next-big-thing status. A top offering from this newish and much-fancied producer, making full, yet elegant wines    
664 Malbec   Catena Alta 2015 120.00
  This is one of the very best Malbecs produced anywhere; filled with gorgeous, creamy black fruits and supple silky tannins, this is very fine wine    
665 Bramare Rebon Vineyard Malbec   Viña Cobos 2014 200.00
  ViñaCobos is the pet project of respected Californian wine-maker Paul Hobbs, who has been working in Mendoza since the late eighties. Full-scale and rich, yet elegant and never overbearing.
