Sauvignon Blanc 2020. "This exceptionally zingy Sauvignon Blanc wine from Bordeaux… is one of our special selections" - Rick Stein. The house white at Gordon Ramsay's three Michelin star restaurant in London.
The back label: "2020 was a fine, early vintage and we harvested our Sauvignon Blanc in late August and early September. This versatile dry white has been the house wine at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay and a special selection for Rick Stein for nearly two decades." 13% vol.
Les Trois Hectares blanc 2020. 'Inexpensive white Bordeaux that over-delivers handsomely for the price' is how a Master of Wine described Les Trois Hectares. We agree.
The back label: "Les Trois Hectares is a single block of old Sémillon vines (about 80%) and Sauvignon Blanc that were planted in 1947, with an early harvest in 2020 on 7 September. It's an aromatic dry white that works well with good food or simply on its own." 13% vol.
Rosé 2020. Our crisp, pale pink has been the house rosé for Rick Stein for many years. A sort of St-Tropez meets Padstow.
The back label: "This dry rosé was made from equal parts of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The grapes were harvested earlier in September than for making red, and the pale juice quickly run off the dark skins for a light, crisp wine." 12% vol.
Bordeaux Supérieur 2017. The 2017 red has turned out really well and has become our firm house favourite. Easy, all-round drinking.
The back label: ‘This is a classic Bordeaux blend of three quarters Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium to full bodied and partially aged in oak, it’s easy, fruity and supple enough to drink quite young. Serve with good food.’ 13.5% alc.
Bordeaux Supérieur 2018. Our classic Bordeaux red has been the premium house red at Hotel du Vin for a decade. A new release, the 2018 is bright and juicy.
The back label: "2018 was a fine vintage with a damp spring, a hot summer and a sunny harvest. A medium to full bodied blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, this can be kept for a few years although it's supple and fruity enough to enjoy quite young." 14% alc.
Les Trois Hectares rouge 2018. A powerful yet smooth red, this is deeper and richer than our classic Bordeaux. One of the best LTH yet, the 2018 is already drinking well.
The back label: "A special cuvée, this blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon was made from two parcels of vines in a single block, and aged in small French oak barrels. A full bodied wine, it's ripe enough to drink young or keep it for years. Best decanted." 14% alc.
