Wine List

 

Zis iz our new great liste des vins :

Some of our whites

An Abymes from Savoie with an excellent Plateau de Fruits de Mer, a distinguished, classic and so good Macon Fuissé for frogs legs, snails or seabass, and I am not speaking of the Muscadet sur Lie, the Picpoul or the little Romanian Chardonnay! All delicious

Some of our reds

Victor Gonnet is still making one of the best Cotes du Rhone, our Bordeaux Lacroix is round, classic and so drinkable, I am not mentioning, the Pic st Loup, our French Merlot La doutelle... and now an organic Vegan wine from Spain, surprising and Enchanteur... 

Pinks and Bubbles ? The choice is yours, Pinot Grigiot rosé, Sparkling Prosecco rosé and more!!

LES VINS FRANCAIS

 

Coin des Coquins  £22.50

Like losing one's pants rolling in the hay! Dangerous but possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity...! Coquines!

 

Chateau Lacroix St Benoix Bordeaux  £27.30/18.90/9.35/4.95

When a beret, an "Opinel" pen knife, a wooden stool and a corn rolled "Gitanes"cigaarette becomes compulsory-"Mon Dieu Jules" Merci!

 

Cotes du Rhone,  Gonnet Vigneron  £28.90/19.70/97.75/5.70

Merde alors! Gouteux, juteux, ze very best!

 

Abymes Jean Perrier et Fils, Savoie  29.80/19.90/10.50/5.45

Il a en bouche une rondeur envoutante, sur la langue un perlant chatouillant et sa robe est d'une couleur jaune pale a reflets verts et Jules enjoyed it every Monday morning with Josette

 

Picpoul de Pinet       £26.70
The grapes are oval, grow in loose bunches and come off easily. That is why in the olden days, trays were often placed beneath the vines to catch falling grapes. The Languedoc
answer to Muscadet. Ripey!

 


Pinot Noir, Escale      £23.90
“God made Cabernet Sauvignon whereas the devil made Pinot Noir!” declared André Tchelistcheff, the dean of American wine makers, after a few bottles!


La Doutelle Merlot      £19.95 / 13.95 / 7.60 / 4.25 
The Merlot grape produces soft & velvety plummy wines, low on tannins. Merlot means “little blackbird” and was so-called because it was said that it is the grape the blackbird guzzles first and that the bird’s colour resembles the grapes and then they pressed it for juice…Cui cui cuik!

 

Macon Fuissé, Domaine de Fussiacus 33.70/22.70/12.40/6.50

Sounds rude to me! "Fucassiacus"you too! Delicious

 

MUSCADET SUR LIE (LA ROCHE)  £24.60/17.50/8.95/4.75

When I was younger Muscadet was all the rage, then it vanished and now Jules brings it back. I feel young again, Youpi!!!

 

PIC ST LOUP CHATEAU DE LANCYRE 2015   £32.40

Like having a summer fling as a giddy teenager with a Languedocien accent. Remember ? So stormy, so good! 

 

COMTE DE PROVENCE ROSE, Chateau Riotor  27.90

Also nicknamed the ''Augergine'' and the 'Mae West' (for obvious reasons), the use of this shapely bottle is stricly controlled. It can only used to be for Cotes de Provence: A soft, curvaceous and pleasurably pink Rose- Oh la la!

 

PINOT BLANC, Cave de Ribeauvillé  £34.90

Some call it a a classic "Dirndl" of a wine with a proper bodice, puff seeved blouse, skirt and apron. I like to think of it more as the year round "Dirndlkjoler" with deep neckline, bare shoulder and push-up bra! Why wait October ?

 

CHAMPAGNE JACQUART BRUT NV  £ 34.50

A great jaccuzi for small people

 

LAURENT PERRIER NV, CHAMPAGNE  £54.00

Avec des frites et peut etre un steak ou un homard ou deux!

 

SWEET WINE

 

Muscat de Saint Jean de Minervois    75ml glass  4.75
Better than Viagra! Check it out.

 

LES VINS DU NOUVEAU MONDE – NEW WORLD (almost!)


Sauvigon Blanc Sylvestre, Ochagavia  £18.90 /13.40/7.20/ 3.95 
Sailing west is Easter Island. No stony faces here! Smiles, warmth and heart.


Pinot Grigio  WHITE or Rosé   £19.95 / 13.75 / 7.20 / 4.25 
Superbus, atrum quod speciosus!


Rioja Blanco Manzano   £24.20/ £16.90/ £8.70 / £ 4.70
This is a wine with a strong bouquet. Better than sucking on a green piece of wood, though not far from rolling in young nettles…


Malbec Bio bio, Nostros Reservas    £22.50
It takes 100 grapes to make a glass of wine! 500 for a bottle and these are all picked by hand, somewhere high in Chile! Cold hands! Warm wine!


Shiraz Coorong estate    £24.90 / 16.90 / 8.90/4.75
For the horse lovers, this wine exhibits a rich bouquet of new saddle leather and for the Country trekker a rich bouquet of black currants and cherries. Why suffer on horseback when you can do it lounging down. An opulent wine, you won’t fall from high!


Rioja reserve Dealto       £29.20
Sit down squarely on your chair, pour yourself a glass, close your eyes and bring it to your lips. Robust, comforting, a big hug of a wine.

 

Chardonnay, Umbrele  £17.95/14.50/7.95/4.20

On June the 10th 1909, the vampire of the Carpathian mountains was first reported to in the "Neues Wiener Journal". The article chronicled in detail how terrified villagers in a town in the mountains were suffering the loss of their children at an alarmiing rate-This would not have happen if this wine had been invented! No red required!

 

Mil historia, Manchuela  £25.90

Does not smell of manure and yet it is a biological wine. It is also a Vegan wine and it goes really well with steak! Paradoxical, definitely a "must try".

 

CHAMPAGNES ET PETILLANTS

 

PROSECCO £19.95    Glass |£4.75

Sunsine, summer dresses, scents of sun lotion, celebration and happiness. Frothy , bubbly... Italian!

 

PINK PROSECCO  £19.95

Zis iz madness! It has bubblees and it is really pink

 

NV BRUT JACQUART  £34.50

Incredibly gentle, a soft and elegant bubble. A great jaccuzzi for small people!

 

LAURENT PERRIER BRUT NV   £54.00

Bravo!

 

Check out our great cocktails! Espresso martini, French martini, Kir Royal....
