Drinks Menu


Champagne

NV Brut Classique, Alfred Gratien, France
A pale yellow hue with a moderately intense yet complex nose. The sweet pastry, biscuit and orchard fruit notes are followed and enhanced by hints of citrus, white flowers and fresh butter. The initial taste is clean, and the finish is crisp and long with a slight mineral undertone. Superb complexity that combines young aromas with notes gained through maturation in cellars. A great Champagne for all occasions.

£40.00

NV Brut Rosé, Alfred Gratien, France
The initial aroma boasts ripe strawberries, redcurrants and fresh peonies. Wheat, biscuit and creme fraiche notes are also detectable, as are hints of more roasted flavours. There is real harmony to this wine, bolstered by fine acidity, light tannin notes and soft fruitiness. This is a classically delicate and gourmet rose Champagne, with great structure and an attractive character.

£45.00
