Welcome to this edition of the Restaurant 27 Wine List.
Well, what an exciting 7 years!
One of the pleasures found in putting together a wine list such as this is when you introduce a new wine and it quickly becomes a ‘hit’ with fellow wine drinkers. This has certainly been the case with the pair of wines from Forgeron Dubois introduced in the last edition. Their Sauvignon Blanc & Merlot are the outcome of a three way partnership between two Englishmen, UK based James Fleetwood, Tim Smith a wine consultant who lives & works in the Languedoc and acclaimed French winemaker Floris Lemstra. Between them they have created a delicious pair of wines produced from grapes grown in the cooler, western part of the Minervois. The sourcing of the right grapes allied with Floris’ winemaking flair yields a duo of wines that exemplify their varietal character but yet are restrained enough in their flavour & weight to make them ideal partners to good food. I loved them when I first tasted them and it would appear from the sales figures that many of you do too.
Now, whilst I would be the last person to wish away the Summer months, enjoying the sun and long days as much as I do, I can rest a little easier this year when thinking of the Autumn to come
as I already have some fantastic new wines lined up for that season’s wine list. I will hold back from saying anymore at this stage other than that one of the star new wines is ‘on the water’ as I write and, it will be a European exclusive for Restaurant 27!
If you would like to, please ask one of the Front of House team to highlight the other new wines or for their recommendations on matching your wine selection to your menu choice. We work together, tasting new wines against the Menu to ensure there is always a suggestion available to you if you are unsure, or perhaps just want to try something different.
