    Sparkling Wine List of the Year UK, presented by Nyetimber 2023

    Trendy and sophisticated wine bar in the heart of Covent Garden, Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels (CVS for short) looks more like a cocktail bar – unsurprising as it is part of the Experimental Cocktail Club group who operate both wine and cocktail bars in London and Paris. The wine list is not quite as natural as the name might suggest (although there are plenty of natural / biodynamic options featured) but it is certainly very good nonetheless – it’s long without being intimidating; French heavy with all regions skillfully covered at all price points. There’s more than enough choice from the...

    Medium-Sized List of the Year UK 2023

    Noizé is a smart and warm French bistro in central Fitzrovia. Named after the tiny village of Noizé in the Loire Valley, where sommelier and owner Mathieu Germond grew up, there’s a dining room on the ground floor and a basement bar/events space. Having spent years previously at Michelin stalwart Pied à Terre, Mathieu’s wine list reflects a vast knowledge and broad, skilful buying. Prices are very reasonable – glasses start at £4.20, bottles at £24. There’s a list with of around 100 references of ‘everyday wines’ from ‘house’ to around £80, then a slightly larger fine wine list, separated by...

    Medium-Sized List of the Year UK 2023

    Sager + Wilde put the cool and the hip into London’s wine bar scene back in 2013, following a successful pop up the year before. The interior has elements of both wine and cocktail bar, housed in a small converted East End pub on trendy Hackney Road. The staff is knowledgeable, passionate and very relaxed. The wine list features lots of interesting options by the glass and a keenly priced long reserve list of some of the great and most interesting wines on offer in London today. To eat there’s cheese, charcuteries, and their famous grilled chilled sandwich. All in all, a really fun place that’...

    Medium-Sized List of the Year UK 2023

    The 10 Cases Bistro à Vin is located in the middle of Theatreland in Covent Garden in London. The concept is simple – to offer a short list of 10 whites and 10 reds (alongside rosé, some bubbly and some fortified) and to never buy more than 10 cases of each wine, guaranteeing a constantly evolving selection. One of the most unpretentious yet high-quality wine bars in London, The 10 Cases is as popular with the trade as it is with the wine-loving public. The menu is French bistro style, three starters, three mains and some smaller tapas plates on the side. The bistro wine list is available by t...

    By the Glass List of the Year UK, presented by Catena Zapata 2023

    Wild Corner is the wine bar little sister to Wild Tavern across the road. It’s small and cosy yet glamourous - well suited to its very smart address in Chelsea/South Kensington. For somewhere small the wine list is long – an incredible 200 bottles are available by the glass (or carafe) with vintages spanning decades (the 1939 Pichon Lalande has sadly just sold out). The menu is produce led; a reduced version of that they serve over the road, simply cooked top quality ingredients that let the wine shine. Fresh langoustines and raw fish, Gillardeau oysters, beef tartare, USDA Sirloin, charcu...
