Lugny is a small village in the Mâconnais, Burgundy. The 2005 Paul Sapin Mâcon Lugny Cuvée Prestige 2005 displays floral and fruity aromas that give way to its lush, suave, medium-bodied character. It offers flavours reminiscent of lemon, dusted with honey and minerals. This charming wine goes well with fish and white meat dishes, and is also an excellent aperitif on its own.

Watershed Margaret River Unoaked Chardonnay 2005
The 2005 Watershed unoaked Chardonnay is elegant and powerful, with intense bouquets and complex flavours of tropical fruits. The creamy lemon and rockmelon flavours add palate weight and richness, balanced by a crisp acidity. This wine is best enjoyed with delicate white meat and seafood dishes.

Disznókö Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos 1996

Tokaj, in the northeast of Hungary, is famous for producing great sweet wines since the 16th century. They were favourites of Louis XIV of France and Pope Pius IV, as well as the tsars of Russia. Aszú means nobly rotted grapes. As the result of the noble rot (botrytis) and over-ripening, the grapes shrivel. This concentrates the sugars and flavour of the Furmint, Hárslevelü, Zéta and Yellow Muscat grapes. Puttonyos, labelled between 3 and 6 on Aszú wine, refers to how many puttony (a traditional wooden basket holding 25 kilos) of aszú grapes are added to a base must or base wine made from the non-botrytis-affected grapes. The more puttonyos, the sweeter and richer the wine. This golden-yellow wine features wild flowers, while a very ripe citrus nose with strong botrytis character add complexity. On the palate, it is round and creamy, smooth like liquid butterscotch, with a lingering aftertaste. It is elegant and beautifully sweet with very good acidity, making it a very delicious wine. Foie gras with Tokaji Aszú is a local delicacy, but it also goes extremely well with blue cheese, and for Chinese food lovers, sweet and sour dishes are perfect. We hope you enjoy this elixir from heaven, high above the clouds.

Wine List

Champagne

Champagne Deutz, Brut Classic
This award winning champagne features lovely aromas and flavours of pear and citrus fruit. Layered with toasted hazelnut, honey and sweet vanilla notes, the wine is balanced by refreshing acidity with a long, lingering finish. It is a perfect aperitif and goes well with delicate dishes.

White Wines

Paul Sapin Mâcon Lugny Cuvée Prestige 2005
Lugny is a small village in the Mâconnais, Burgundy. The 2005 Paul Sapin Mâcon Lugny Cuvée Prestige 2005 displays floral and fruity aromas that give way to its lush, suave, medium-bodied character. It offers flavours reminiscent of lemon, dusted with honey and minerals. This charming wine goes well with fish and white meat dishes, and is also an excellent aperitif on its own.

Sebastiani Sonoma County Chardonnay 2005
The grapes for this wine were sourced from several sub-appellations of Sonoma County in California. The wine has very pleasant mineral and citrus notes on the nose, with nuances of golden apple and pink grapefruit. It is a beautiful, well-rounded wine with fine acidity. The lingering finish is laced with vanilla flavours. It pairs well with a variety of foods from grilled or poached white meat to salads and pastas.

Red Wines

Kirrihill Companions Clare Valley Shiraz 2004
This rich wine, from Clare Valley, South Australia, has intense aromas of ripe mulberry and nutmeg, combined with vanilla oak. It is balanced and generous with sweet berry fruit and chocolate notes, while the tannin adds to deliver a powerful wine that lingers nicely on the palate. Enjoy this flavoursome wine with red meat dishes.

Château De Mercey Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune 2005
This delicious wine is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, from Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France. It has aromas of red and black berries with notes of toast and spices, and offers ample fruity flavours. It matches very well with red meat, poultry and rich cheese.

Port

Dow’s Late Bottled Vintage Port 2000
This wine is sourced from the same vineyards that in exceptional years produce Dow’s renowned Vintage Ports. It is aged solely in oak casks and bottled 5 to 6 years after the harvest. It is a full rich Port with spicy fruit flavours and an elegant aromatic nose, well rounded on the palate and has the traditional Dow’s drier finish. This makes it one of the finest Late Bottled Vintage Ports available.

Disznókö Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos 1996

Tokaj, in the northeast of Hungary, is famous for producing great sweet wines since the 16th century. They were favourites of Louis XIV of France and Pope Pius IV, as well as the tsars of Russia. Aszú means nobly rotted grapes. As the result of the noble rot (botrytis) and over-ripening, the grapes shrivel. This concentrates the sugars and flavour of the Furmint, Hárslevelü, Zéta and Yellow Muscat grapes. Puttonyos, labelled between 3 and 6 on Aszú wine, refers to how many puttony (a traditional wooden basket holding 25 kilos) of aszú grapes are added to a base must or base wine made from the non-botrytis-affected grapes. The more puttonyos, the sweeter and richer the wine. This golden-yellow wine features wild flowers, while a very ripe citrus nose with strong botrytis character add complexity. On the palate, it is round and creamy, smooth like liquid butterscotch, with a lingering aftertaste. It is elegant and beautifully sweet with very good acidity, making it a very delicious wine. Foie gras with Tokaji Aszú is a local delicacy, but it also goes extremely well with blue cheese, and for Chinese food lovers, sweet and sour dishes are perfect. We hope you enjoy this elixir from heaven, high above the clouds.

Wines

Champagne

Taittinger Brut Millésimé 2000
The 2000 vintage was much anticipated all around the world and it did not disappoint, especially in Champagne where the wines have real class and style. Taittinger’s 2000 vintage wine is a blend of half Pinot Noir and half Chardonnay made only from the juice from the first pressings, these being the most harmonious. Its superb sparkling golden yellow colour and its delicate fruity nose, with hints of white flowers and tea leaf, lead into a palate that is complex and smooth, dominated by flavours of citrus and quince. Delicious!

White

Chablis 1er Cru Montmains 2005, William Fèvre
How is it that Chablis wines are so full of charm and zest? Domaine William Fèvre, now owned by Champagne magnate Joseph Henriot, has a very impressive array of grands and premiers crus in its portfolio – Montmains is consistently one of the best. This wine has a rich nose offering aromas of ripe white fruit and brioche. The flavour is both fruity and fresh, with a well-marked mineral structure and good length.

Yalumba “The Virgilius” Viognier 2006
Viognier is such a trendy grape variety nowadays yet so often it fails to deliver. Yalumba, Australia’s oldest family owned winery, seems to have found a perfect site for it amongst the rugged beauty of the Eden Valley. The cool climate and high elevation provide the ideal conditions for the production of high quality, aromatic white wines. This is an opulent wine with aromas of white peaches, apricots and ginger, layers of complexity on the palate and luscious, lifted ginger spice flavours.

Beringer Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2006
The Napa Valley is, without a doubt, California’s premium wine growing area yet many people do not associate it with the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety. But when it is planted in the right places – the cooler, higher parts of the valley are perfect – it makes delicious wines. This is delightfully crisp and dry but with pronounced tropical notes and refreshing, clean lemony acidity.

Red

Château Nenin 1996, Pomerol
Pomerol, the smallest and least known of Bordeaux’s great communes, has never been classified hence there are no grands or premiers crus – but don’t let this detract from the superb quality of its wines. This wine is a blend of mostly Merlot grapes with some Cabernet Franc. It has the typical Merlot juiciness in its crunchy blackcurrant fruit but a great structure and backbone that has softened as it aged. 1996 was a lovely vintage.

Gevrey-Chambertin 2001, Domaine Taupenot-Merme
Gevrey is one of the most famous villages in Burgundy and Chambertin is its most famous vineyard. This is the spiritual home of the Pinot Noir grape yet it grows here on a knife edge of climatic uncertainty – thankfully 2001 provided sufficiently good weather to make this lovely wine. This is an ancient estate, it was established in 1760, which is now run organically. This wine is concentrated and rich with complex flavours of red and black fruits, good balance and a long finish.

Berberana Carta de Oro Gran Reserva Rioja 2000
Berberana is one of the largest producers in La Rioja, Spain’s most celebreated and widely drunk wine, and Carta de Oro is one of its flagship brands. This Gran Reserva is aged in barrels of American oak for three years, then in bottle for another two years before it is released. It is made mostly from the Tempranillo grape variety with some Garnacha. It is rounded with a sweet fruit start but finishes dry – a perfect food wine.

Dessert

Saussignac Cuvée Flavie, Château des Eyssards 2005
Saussignac is a tiny appellation about an hour’s drive due east of Bordeaux. The wine is a blend of eighty per cent Semillon grapes and twenty per cent Chenin Blanc which have been affected by “noble rot” – the viticultural phenomena that helps make all the finest sweet wines. After fermentation it is aged in French oak casks for eighteen months. The flavour is lusciously sweet and dense but with a crisp acidity that leaves a lovely fresh flavour.

Warre’s 1998 Colheita Port
Complex, sweet, nutty flavours offer an admirable after-dinner glass.

Spirits, Digestifs and Liqueurs

We offer a complete range of classic and timeless spirits, digestifs and liqueurs featuring :

Gonzalez Byass Sherries

Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve Champagne
Charles Heidsieck was founded in 1851 by Charles Camille Heidsieck – the original “Champagne Charlie”. Nowadays it is recognised as one of Champagne’s star performers and regularly wins awards for the quality of their wines. This wine has a mid-gold colour with a fine mousse. There are classic toasty, ripe fruit aromas with a complex, mouth-filling flavour lifted by firm acidity. The finish is long and rich but also beautifully refreshing. It is made from the classic blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay grapes. Both the Pinots are red grapes – Champagne is one of the very few white wines to be made using red grapes. Champagne is the greatest aperitif but also goes with a whole range of foods. Fish and shellfish are great companions but it will also enhance risottos, pasta dishes and the lighter meats. Equally good with fruit desserts and cheese.

White

William Hill Estate Napa Valley Chardonnay 2004
The William Hill Estate is situated on the breathtakingly beautiful Silverado Trail in California’s Napa Valley – things don’t come much more picturesque than this. And the wines match the scenery – balanced with forward fruit flavours and elegance. This Chardonnay is rich and buttery yet crisp and refreshing. The Napa Valley is easily the best known wine region in America yet it accounts for a tiny one per cent of production.

Rully Clos des Mollepierre 2005, Roux Père et Fils
The Roux family established their wine business in Burgundy in 1885 and now they are one of the largest landowners in the region. This wine is from the village of Rully, in the Côte Chalonnais. It is made entirely from the Chardonnay grape and in a very fine vintage. It has a rich, slightly buttery aroma with a pronounced lemony note. The flavour is mouth-filling and powerful, soft-textured yet firm and full-bodied.

Red

Hess Collection Mountain Cuvée 2003, Napa Valley
The grapes for this wine – Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc – are grown high on Mount Veeder, one of the highest peaks in the Napa Valley, and benefit from its long, cool nights. It is beautifully fresh with clean, primary fruit flavours, well-integrated oak, good concentration and a long finish. The extraordinary winery is home to one of the world’s greatest collections of modern art.

Château Fourcas Hosten 2003, Cru Bourgeois Supérieur Listrac
2003 was a very awkward year for the winemakers in Bordeaux, indeed in all of northern Europe. The intense heat of the summer gave extremely ripe grapes that required very careful handling to avoid overripe flavours. This château has done just that – the flavours in this wine are full and ripe but clean and zingy with a refreshing crunch to the blackcurrant fruit.

Kir Royale – Crème de Cassis gives this cocktail its distinctive taste

Heidsieck Monopole Blue Top Brut Reserve Champagne
Heidsieck Monopole can trace their roots back to 1785 – it was founded in that year by Florens-Louis Heidsieck, a young German from Hanover – but their wines stand firmly in the modern world. This has a pale yellow colour with flecks of green, a strong and generous nose with hints of spice and an unreserved full and fruity palate

or

Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve Champagne
Charles Heidsieck was founded in 1851 by Charles Camille Heidsieck – the original “Champagne Charlie”. Nowadays it is recognised as one of Champagne’s star performers and regularly wins awards for the quality of their wines. This wine has a mid-gold colour with a fine mousse. There are classic toasty, ripe fruit aromas with a complex, mouth-filling flavour lifted by firm acidity. The finish is long and rich but also beautifully refreshing.

White

Innocent Bystander Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2005
The Yarra Valley is roughly an hour’s drive east of Melbourne. It is regarded throughout Australia as a very cool region – in both senses of the word! Although the whole range of grape varieties can be found here it is for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that the Valley is renowned. This is a beautifully balanced wine with bracing acidity, cool citrus notes on the nose and lively tropical fruit flavours.

Chablis Champs Royaux 2006, William Fèvre
Chablis only knowns one grape variety – in Chablis the Chardonnay is king! William Fèvre have been making their Champs Royaux for many years from grapes brought all round the region. Once inside the winery they are fermented in stainless steel vats, no oak here at all, to maintain the intrinsic purity and freshness of the fruit. The result is a lively, crisp dry white wine with good weight, definition and a long finish.

Red

Yalumba Barossa Shiraz Viognier 2004
Blending the white viognier grape, albeit just five per cent, with the red Shiraz grape may seem an odd thing to do but the winemakers in the Rhône Valley region of France have been doing it very successfully for centuries. Even such a tiny percentage gives the wine a most attractive, sensual bouquet to go with the generous, fleshy red fruit flavours. Yalumba, an Aboriginal word for “the land all around”, is the oldest family owned winery in Australia.

Château Arnauld 2004, Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc
After the inconsistency of the super ripe 2003 vintage, it’s nice to get back to truly classic claret with the 2004s. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes, this wine shows nuances of cedar and cigar box with a characteristic underpinning of intense blackcurrant fruit. Its firm tannic structure makes it a great food wine.
