~ Full-bodied, Smooth & Nutty White Wines ~

These wines are so intriguing; you could almost accuse them as being red. Thus, you can match them with slightly richer dishes, heavier sauces & bigger meats. The bigger the oak, the better the match is with meats & big sauces. Why not try one of the Chardonnays with our breast of lamb, pork chop or even the corned beef hash?

 ~ Intense & Powerful Red Wines ~
These wines will pack a punch. That is a guarantee. When it comes to matching food & wine, the most important factor, more crucial than flavours or colours, is the weight of the wine. Big wines, like these, need big dishes, packed with flavours & depth, not to mention big portions. Think along the lines of
a roast beef or lamb dinner, steak & kidney pudding or maybe the cheese-board.

Grape varieties include: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Corvina, Malbec, Merlot, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Shiraz, Tempranillo

 
Food Matching Guidelines



Truffles & wild mushrooms; cheesy sauces; strong cheeses; beef, lamb, game & steaks; casseroles & stews; black pepper & rosemary

~ Rosé Wines ~

Rosé is big wine news. The success story of the last five years. They’re increasingly popular. We have to say they’re increasingly very good. But the million dollar question is, why the massive increase in popularity? Guess what? It’s also partly down to global warming: chilled rosé is perfect in hotter weather. It’s lovely to drink on its own. It’s also a great companion with foods, particularly al fresco dining. Rosé works well with foods that suit both white and red wines. We say: give rosé a try and make your own mind up.

~ Bin End Wines – Whites ~
Bin end wines are special purchases, where stocks are limited. They are the end of lines and particular vintages from wholesalers and specialist importers. Because of this they are often
exceptional value. George chooses wines which tickle his fancy: Top wines from top producers -
personal favourites. The section includes some very fine and rare wines. Well worth a look or
a personal recommendation. He’s included a few notes to inform your selection. These cover
a much broader price range than the standard list. They’re also one of the things which make the Chop House different. As the Dutch say, ’op is op.’ When they’re gone, they’re gone.

 
Wente, Livermore Valley, San Francisco Bay, California, USA, 2008

Sauvignon Blanc

A French emigrant, Louis Mel travelled the western United States in the 1870’s seeking a place to make wines to rival the great French Crus.  He found the ideal home in the Livermore Valley.  Acquiring Sauvignon Blanc cuttings from the Marquis de Lur-Saluces, owner of the famed Chateau d’ Yquem, he planted them in his vineyards.  The Wente family acquired the Louis Mel estate in the 1930’s, where the descendants of these vines, located in the southern Livermore Valley, live in gravel and loam soils similar to the terroir of their native Bordeaux.

Montauchot, Montagny 1er Cru la Buxynoise, Côte Chalonnaise, Burgundy, France, 2008

Chardonnay

The smart buyer’s Chassagne Montrachet. Louis Latour is a well-known négociant who also owns 124 acres of some of the best vineyards in Burgundy. He’s made a little Chardonnay classic here: buttery, nutty, apple-like fruit with a touch of acidity.
Dellas Frères, La Galopine, Condrieu, Rhône Valley, France, 2006

Viognier

Dellas Frères, founded in 1835, are famous for their great red wines, but here they give us an interesting 100% Viognier—beautifully silky, well balanced, & gorgeous with aromas of apricots & white flowers. The wine has lots of depth & exhibits great minerality with a mouth-watering finish, achieved without oak adornment. “I love Viognier with tasty fish like trout & mackerel.” GB 

 

Domaine des Maillettes, Grande Réserve, Pouilly Fuissé, Mâconnais, Burgundy, France, 2010

Chardonnay

This is an exceptional value premium white Burgundy, from a small, single domain,


old-vines estate which is passionate about producing high quality wine. It has fresh, ripefruit, with defined minerality, finesse & good length which makes it perfect with charcuterie, white meat & all fish including ones with sauces.

 

Louis Jadot, Puligny Montrachet, Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France, 2007



Chardonnay

The Grand Cru vineyards of Puligny Montrachet are regarded as some of the best in the world, let alone Burgundy. Bright gold in colour, long flavour, succulent & intense. A great wine from a great producer, it has all the hallmarks of a truly world class Chardonnay. Odd though it may seem, this wine represents great value. “I just love this wine!” GB.

Trapiche, Broquel, Mendoza, Argentina, 2006

Cabernet Sauvignon

Very elegant example of Cabernet Sauvingnon. Made in classic style so you could easily confused it with Bordeaux. Soft, complex and very long aftertaste. Rich, perfumed, with a good balance between depth and power. Aromas of cassis and raspberry jam. On your palate you can spot a lovely touch of smoke, roasted pepper and chocolate.


Trapiche, Colección Roble, Mendoza, Argentina, 2007

Cabernet Sauvignon

The most popular grape variety in the world from arguably the best wine region in Argentina. This wine tastes as it was made for chop houses – big and powerful enough to go perfectly well with all chops. It is like a fruit bomb – blackcurrant, blueberry, blackberry with black plums. Full and round with velvety tannins and a long aftertaste.


Gaston Hochar, Château Musar Mosaic, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, 2010

Syrah, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon

Château Musar was established in the Bekaa Valley in 1930 by Gaston Hochar, although it has been run by his two sons Serge & Ronald since 1959. Just north of Beirut, this location was ravaged by civil war & placed demands on the family that most winemakers do not experience. Battle raged around the vines throughout the 1983 harvest & Serge had to be smuggled in by a small boat to make his wine. Similar conditions were endured in 1988 & 1989. Deep scarlet in colour, the nose displays mature red cherry, blackcurrant, tropical fruit & violets. On the palate, the velvety soft tannins reveal ripe red cherries, pear & blackberries, mixed with peppery cinnamon spice & chocolate on the long finish. A nice match for our corned beef hash, liver & bacon or sausages & mash.

 


Wente, Crane Ridge, Livermore Valley, San Francisco Bay, California,
USA, 2006


Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon

Even though there is only Merlot grape variety mentioned on a bottle there is some Cabernet Sauvignon added to give a wine a backbone and a little more structure. Deep garnet colour with a crimson cast fruits, vanilla, wet clay, and brown spice aromas follow through to a supple, lightly tannic entry and a dry-yet-fruity medium-full body. Flavours of blackberries, blackcurrants (from Cabernet Sauvignon) brown spice, and plums lead to a moderately tannic fade with nice grip.


Pedra Basta, Alentejano, Portugal, 2009

Trincadeira, Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, Cabernet Sauvignon

“Richard Mayson, the owner of this winery & a really good friend of mine, is regarded as one of the world’s leading experts on Port & Madeira. Made in Southern Portugal from the Aragonez grape, in very small quantities, this is their answer to Spain’s Tempranillo.” In fact, George believes this is his best wine. It’s really BIG. A peppery, spicy, massively full-bodied wine, perfect with meat dishes & heavy sauces. Once tasted, you will come back to it again & again.

 
Kendall Jackson, Vintner’s Reserve, California, USA, 2005

Merlot

Once you taste a glass of this wine it invites you to taste another glass. Great wine, smooth taste with hints of blueberry, mocha as well as black cherry & star anise.


Well structured, complex & elegant. I met Mrs Jackson in April 2012 & very impressed with the high quality of their wines & production values.

 

Murrieta’s Well, Meritage, Livermore Valley, San Francisco Bay, California, USA, 2007


Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec

The word Meritage in American wine terminology means “red Bordeaux blend”, which also reflects the spirit of the members of the Meritage Association, formed in 1988, a group of American vintners making wines from the traditional “noble” Bordeaux varieties. This wine is aged for 12 months in French & American oak. We get dark fruit & earth on the palate with a smooth & long finish.

Azienda Agricola COS, Cerasuolo Di Vittoria, Sicily, Italy, 2009

Nero d’Avola, Frappato

Azienda Agricola COS was founded in 1980 by three friends who wanted to go over what had been the work of their ancestors. They have always followed the principles of biodynamic viticulture, to help find a balance & harmony with nature in producing this charming wine. This area is so good at producing wine that is has the enviable distinction of becoming the first DOCG appellation on the island. This is an elegant wine, striking a beautiful balance between its complexity & intensity, blending such notes as raspberry, blueberry, violet, tobacco & vanilla. Pleasingly crisp, slightly tannic & with a great body & intense finish.


Bodegas Corral, Don Jacobo, Reserva, Rioja, La Rioja, Spain, 2004

Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo

Rioja produces Spain's flagship red wines. Don Jacobo is not the most popular wine from Rioja in UK (yet) but in Spain it’s a star. You can find it on most wine lists at Michelin star establishments. A wine spends about 25 months in oak barrels in cool cellars before being bottled and then aged for 2 more years. It is traditional in style with the developed fruit you would expect from a mature Rioja from one of the region's better producers.

Castello di Bossi, Corbaia, Tuscany, 2003

Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon

The estate’s 2003 Corbaia is a blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet aged for two years in small French oak barrels. It is a gorgeous, full-bodied effort packed with dark fruit, cassis, liquorice and balsamic notes that flow from the glass, showing outstanding length and fine overall balance, with the Sangiovese providing the acidity that keeps the wine fresh. The fruit is still vibrant and the tannins youthful, so another few years of cellaring seem to be called for. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.

Gaston Hochar, Château Musar, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, 2003

Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, Cinsault

The legendary Lebanese wine from the legendary winemaker who lost only two (yes, just two) vintages to the long-running civil war. No one can say that the Hochar family are not truly dedicated to their craft. French farmers might be militant sometimes, but they don’t really compare to Hezbollah, do they? This is one of their best vintages & features their most appealing blend. “I know because I’ve tasted them all back to 1985” GB. The perfect match for all lamb dishes, from Shepherds Pie to rack of lamb.


Domaines Bouyer, Clos de la Cure, Grand Cru, Saint-Émillion, Bordeaux, France, 2008

  Merlot, Cabernet Franc

The estate Clos de la Cure represents more than seven generations of viticultural heritage. It was first planted in the Middle Ages. This complex wine is opaque in colour and shows aromas of sweet blackcurrant leaf and a hint of cedar on the nose. Superb structure with solid, tight tannins and a long satisfying finish. The vineyard shares the same soil structure as one of the most famous Châteaux from Saint-Émillion – Cheval Blanc. Gravel and clay with a proportion of iron-rich deposits – which gives an idea of its pedigree.

Decanter World Wine Awards 2012 - commended


Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Domaine de Baron’Arques, Limoux, France, 2004

Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Grenache, Malbec

This is intended to become the Opus One of France. Its Bordeaux-style blend is very deep & dark with a violet tint, opens on fresh blackberry & bilberry aromas with touches of strawberry & cherry. Round & smooth in the mouth, it has a rich, well-rounded structure & a silky mid-palate, elegantly combining distinguished tannins with generous flavours. The highly expressive finish, full, powerful & pleasantly textured, is characteristic of a wine with considerable potential. George tasted this vintage last Christmas. It is obviously now reaching its peak. “It was simply stunning.” Part of a barrel exclusively reserved by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild for the

chop houses.

Domaine Louis Latour, Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru Les Chaillotts, Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France, 2006

Pinot Noir

Louis Latour, legendary négociant-éleveur of the Côte-d’Or, has a reputation for


producing some of the most elegant wines in Burgundy. This Premier Cru Aloxe-Corton does not disappoint. As mentioned, this wine is elegant & silky with a hint of the oak ageing it had the pleasure of being subjected to. On the nose we get earthy tones, even a hint of forest floor blended nicely with red fruits. The palate does not disappoint either with red currant, cherry and strawberry flavours working effortlessly alongside the balanced acidity, slight minerality & nice, smooth tannins.

 

Domaine Louis Latour, Corton Grand Cru, Clos de la Vigne au Saint, Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France, 1998



Pinot Noir

This wine had lasted wonderfully well. Mid ruby with a very pale rim. A wonderfully balanced and complex wine with a ripe cherry colour and a delicious aroma of red fruits along with more spicy notes that highlight the wine's natural elegance. It contains finely crafted tannins with a beautiful structure combined with a subtle hint of vanilla oak, resulting in a long and polished finish.




Château Duhart-Milon-Rothschild, Pauillac, Médoc, Bordeaux, France, 1989

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc

Starting with a deep garnet, almost browning colour, this wine from an exceptional

vintage gives us cedar, warm red fruits, vanilla & hint of vanilla on the nose, followed by a brilliantly balanced, rich smooth finish. Lovely tannins balanced nicely with lovely fruit, this wine is worth every penny, and more. Get in quick as I’ve only managed to reserve a handful of bottles of this wonderful elixir.

~ Champagne & Sparkling Wines ~
While Monty Python argued over what the Romans did for Britain (actually Judea), there is no disputing what they did for the towns of the Champagne Region. They came, they saw & they mined the area’s chalk. And they left behind them miles of underground galleries & cellars which now house millions of bottles of this exquisite elixir. The Champagne is divided into five sub-regions: Côtes de Blancs; Montagne de Reims; Vallée de la Marne; Côtes de Sezanne & the Aube. Every listed house has vineyards in these sub-regions & grows three permitted grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier. Once the grapes are harvested towards the end of September or beginning of October, wines are made & must remain in the Roman cellars for at least three years. After this extended rest in the cellars, Champagne reaches our tables; so enjoy it in good company. This is the most sociable of drinks after all.

Carr Taylor, Brut, Sussex, England, NV

Reichensteiner, Schonburger

Carr Taylor is unique amongst British sparkling wines. We like it because it’s as good as any comparably-priced champagne, with its own very distinctive (let’s call it English) flavour. The fruit notes are quite exquisite. It’s a very good fizz, with nice little bubbles from, yes, East Sussex. George reckons that if you didn’t know this wasn’t French, you wouldn’t ask. Since the vineyard was founded, it has won over 130 awards including:

International Wine Challenge Bronze Medal, Gold Medal - The British Bottlers’ Institute


Cloudy Bay, Pelorus, Brut, Marlborough, New Zealand, NV

Chardonnay, Pinot Noir

Balfour, Brut Rosé, Kent, England, 2008

Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier

A beautiful example of an English rosé, this wine has a wonderful colour to it.


The palate begins with a creamy mousse which opens into a light fruitiness. Excellent balance of fruit & acidity which makes this a serious contender for one of the top wines
in the country.
