Wine Pairings
· Champagne Moet & Chandon Brut Rose, 187ml
A celebratory glass of Moet & Chandon’s Brut Imperial, a high-quality Champagne that is the perfect aperitif, especially in quarter bottles which gives a perfect 2 glasses.
· Joh. Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese 2017, 375ml
This is paired with an outstanding German Riesling, transporting us to Damrau's Country. It comes from JJ Prum, one of the greatest producers in the Mosel, and is an Auslese, so it is off dry, with apple, pear and melon, with fresh acidity – pure joy
· Les Pagodes de Cos 2015, Saint Estèphe, 375ml
And, the red half bottle is the second wine from the second growth, Chateau Cos d’Estournel, in St. Estèphe, Bordeaux. The Pagodes comes from the outstanding 2015 vintage and is savory and spicy, with excellent structure and a soft, round finish.

· Mullineux: Syrah 2016, 750ml
A fine and perfumed Syrah from South Africa. We recommend opening the bottle in advance, to let the aromas shine through, revealing spices and blackberries, with a silky texture.
