Noizé Wine List
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 region and country that delves deeper. You’ll find plenty of older vintages – 60’s Barbaresco, 70’s Rioja - again many at very reasonable markups. Over 20 sweets wines, some excellent and varied Champagnes plus a few good half bottles all make for a very complete and hidden gem of a list.
They are also very accommodating to bringing your own wines, which they will look after very well, for a small corkage fee. Food is contemporary classic made with the best independently sourced ingredients. No tasting menus, although the hospitable kitchen team will happily devise an arrangement for you.
