Les 110 de Taillevent London won Best Sparkling Wine List
Les 110 de Taillevent London, the UK branch of the iconic Paris restaurant Le Taillevent, has been named the winner of the Best Sparkling Wine List of the 2023 Star Wine List of the Year UK with The Buyer.
Presented by Nyetimber, this award recognizes the list that offers the best curation of sparkling wines.
Jury member Piotr Pietras MS said that Les 110 de Taillevent London offers a beautiful sparkling wine selection that was strong at every price point. “A great balance of grower Champagnes and Grandes Marques brands. The list also offers some interesting sparkling wines from England and benchmark wines from other European countries.”
Lukasz Kuszela of Les 110 de Taillevent said how happy the team were to be present, once again, at the awards.
"We continue what we are doing," he said. "One hundred and ten wines — you could imagine that it’s quite hard to work with and maintain, but it’s actually quite easy. How do design it, change, update and serve? For our guests it’s of course great to have the opportunity to try so many different wines by the glass, at every range and price point.”
When asked how the wine list was going to be maintained, team member Isabelle Strutt said they went to a lot of tastings. "Our list keeps on growing, so hopefully next year we will back and even better."
The award was presented at the Winemakers Club in London on Monday, 20 February 2023.
The silver medallists in the Best Sparkling Wine List were:
• Hide, London
• Kitchen Table, London
• La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels Seven Dials, London
• NoMad, London
• The George, London
• The Ritz Restaurant, London
• The Vineyard at Stockcross, Newbury
