LES AUTRES VINS FRANCAIS


Mas Janeil Gros-Manseng      £19.95/ 13.95/7.60/4.25 
Can be enjoyed without mud under one’s fingernails. Small boules but big heart!


Picpoul de Pinet       £24.70
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 / 13.75 / 7.20 / 3.95
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!

 

 

JULES ENJOYS DRINKING :

 

COIN DES COQUINS  £22.50

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

 

CHATEAU LACROIS ST BENOIX BORDEAUX  £25.70/17.50/8.95/4.95

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

 

COTES DU RHONE, VICTOR GONNET VIGNERON  £26.90/18.70/9.75/5.70

Merde alors! Gouteux, juteux, ze very best!

 

CHARDONNAY ORGANIC, DOMAINE SAINTE IRENEE £25.50/£17.40/£8.95/£4.95

A wine made the way wine used to be when warmed up for Jules baby bottle. Unsurprisingly, it has aged much better than Jules! Enjoy

 

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   £28.90

This year, July was a very hot month with extreme temperature of 38.1 degree on July 20th, slowing vine development and then, ''Badaboum boum'', 2 major storms on the 13th and 23rd of August allowed ripening to restart. Phelonic ripeness followed soon. Harvest began on August 28th in glorius sunshine. A stormy wine.

 

COMTE DE PROVENCE ROSE, LA VIDAUBANAISE  £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!

 

CHAMPAGNE JACQUART BRUT NV  £ 34.50

A great jaccuzi for small people

 

LAURENT PERRIER NV, CHAMPAGNE  £49.00

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

 

SWEET WINE

Muscat de Saint Jean de Minervois 27.50
Better than Viagra! Check it out.

 

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


Sauvigon Blanc Sylvestre, Ochagavia    £17.90 / 12.60 / 6.75 / 3.90
Sailing west is Easter Island. No stony faces here! Smiles, warmth and heart.


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


Rioja Blanco Manzano   £21.70 / £15.20 / £7.95 / £ 4.50
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    £20.70 
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!


Cabernet Sauvignon      £17.90 / 12.50 / 6.50 / 3.80
I have a friend that just came back from Chile, she liked it!


Shiraz Coorong estate    £21.70 / 15.20 / 7.95 / 4.20
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       £27.70 / 19.70 / 10.25 / 5.95
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.


Esloquehay Garnacha   £35.90

Produced by a Scotsman in the northern wild west of Spain! Nothing else to add, if Braveheart was a wine this would be it! " FREEDOOOOOOOM...!" Superbe!

 

Originalle Rosso,IGT,Neropasso,Mabis  £26.50

Romeo and Juliet is set in Verona and so is this wine. But then why would Shakespeare have written:- ''Good wine need no bush*''... I don't understand! *appeared first in around 1599 in the epilogue of the Shakespeare comedy ''As you like it''

 

CHAMPAGNES ET PETILLANTS

 

PROSECCO £19.95    Glass |£4.50

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

 

NV BRUT JACQUART  £34.50

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

 

LAURENT PERRIER BRUT NV   £49.00

Bravo!
