A few seasonal recommendations from Tim Hart & Dominique Baduel

NV Champagne René Beaudouin, Nogent L’Abesse
Our “House” Champagne is made from a pure Chardonnay
formula which out-tastes all but the best “ Grandes Marques”.
It is crisp, dry and elegant with enough age to have discarded
the greenness of younger wines.
£278 for 12 bottles

2014 Chateau Violette, Moulis
This tiny property belonging to the Begu family made a lovely Claret in 2014. Merlot makes up 60% of the blend. It has a complex Bouquet mixing fruit and spice. The palate is round and balanced.
£97.50 for 6 bottles

Following a most impressive tasting of these top English Sparklers we are offering Gusbourne by the glass in the bar.  We have some stock that we can offer by the bottle.

2014 Gusbourne Blanc de Blanc Sparkling Wine
This top English sparkling wine scores well for its freshness and structure and has enough maturity and roundness to offer real sophistication.
£189 for 6 bottles 2014

Gusbourne Rosé, Sparkling Wine
Charming wild strawberry nose and a good round flavour make this a thoroughly worthwhile English Rosé sparkler to rival all but the very best from Champagne.
£198 for 6 bottles

2014 Pouilly Fumé Vin Cerveaux – £165 for 6 bottles 2017
Levin Sauvignon Blanc – £74 for 6 bottles
For lovers of Sauvignon Blanc these two wines are great expressions of this variety.
The Fumé is made by Levin wines from fruit sourced from the western side of the Fumé Appellation from organic and sustainable vines. The result is wonderfully taut, mineral and refreshing and 5 years bottle age has removed all trace of youthful austerity. A very fine Sauvignon!
The Levin comes from outside the fashionable Appellations in the wider Touraine region. It offers perhaps a touch less minerality than the Fumé and possibly more up front fruit. A tremendous success at Hambleton and Harts for almost 5 years.

2016 Miles Mossop “ Max” Stellenbosch
Miles Mossop was wine maker at Tokara and has since 2004 been making his own wines from fruit sourced around Stellenbosch. “Max” is a Bordeaux blend named after his eldest son (54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% merlot, 22% Petit Verdot) and is gloriously ripe and expressive.
£103 for 6 bottles

2013 Clos de Trias, Ventoux, Even Bakke
A few clients will have a chance to try Even’s wines at a Hambleton Wine dinner on November 13th. This one has a wonderfully mature earthy, spicy or animal style and is made from Grenache, syrah and Carignan. A great winter wine with game and roast meats.
£102 for 6 bottles
