René Beaudouin NV
Our House Champagne for some 25 years, the wine is made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes grown around the village of Nogent L’Abbesse. It is fresh and balanced with just the right degree of maturity to round off the acidity of youth with the toasty quality of older wine.
£329 for 12 bottles


2019 Chateâu de Chantegrive Cuvée Caroline, Graves
White Bordeaux at the top end is generally made of a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes, in this case around 50:50. The Sauvignon gives the zippy and aromatic character and the Semillon a richer rounder profile. The wine is aged in oak. Delicious on its own or with fish, poultry or Veal dishes.
£175 for 6 bottles

2017 Marsannay Blanc Bruno Clair
Just beyond Gevrey Chambertin and Fixin the appellation of Marsannay produces some excellent red and white Burgundy, especially from a top grower like Bruno Clair. Since the village is relatively unknown the prices are modest. A recent tasting convinced me that this wine should be snapped up for its creamy round mature Burgundy profile. To be enjoyed now and for the next three years or so.
£135 for 6 bottles


2017 Rully les Preaux, Eric de Suremain
This is a gentle and mature red Burgundy from the Cote Chalonnaise delicious now or over the next five years.
£134 for 6 bottles

2021 Junge Lowen, (Blaufrankisch/St Laurent) Heidi Schrock, Burgenland
This charming wine has a medium body and a refreshing profile. It opens in the glass to an appetizing nose suggestive of cherries, pepper and leather. From the south east of Austria near the Hungarian border.
£99 for 6 bottles

2004 “Bonne Nouvelle” Stellenbosch
This wine has a story. It was made with the help of Bordeaux Oenologist and consultant Michel Rolland from Merlot and Cabernet fruit sourced from the Remhoogte estate in Stellenbosch. It is now almost 20 years old and tastes, to us, like a fine mature Bordeaux at a fraction of the price. We serve it regularly at Hambleton with much success. Note of Caution: the wine has dodgy corks which preserve the wine perfectly but crumble with a normal corkscrew. To resolve this each box contains a special corkscrew.
£126 for 6 bottles
