PAIRING WINES

TONNERE
18.35

Domaine Dampt, Collan, Yonne, Côte d'Or, Burgundy

100% Chardonnay. Pale gold with an instant fresh grassy sweetness coming through. Light and floral with vanilla overtones and the familiar silky smooth, almost nectar finish. The overall taste is fresh and persistent and should be drunk young. The Tonnerois soil is excellent for vines, combining a good exposure to light and sun with appropriate sloped hillsides and chalky stoney structure, enabling the vines to scramble deep into the soil. Just outside the Chablis district, the Dampt family have owned this estate for generations and are multi-award winning vignerons.

SANTENAY VIEILLES VIGNES
54.60

Domaine Lucien Muzard & Fils Santenay, Cote d'Or, Burgundy

100% Pinot Noir. The Muzard family can trace their local roots back as far as 1645 (nine generations). The Santenay is a fine example of the capricious fresh berry notes of the Pinot style (wood fermentation tanks/barrel ageing) and young wines should always be decanted since they retain carbon dioxide which gives out aromas that disappear once decanted. Non-filtered – you will enjoy a true expression of aromas and texture and purity of style.

Throughout the year our kitchen brings down from the shop floor the loveliest seasonal ingredients and makes jams, marmalades & chutneys to last us through the colder months. Made in small batches, the ingredients change frequently throughout the year to ensure the freshest produce goes into our chutneys. Gorgeous alongside a cheese board but perhaps best on a simple sandwich with a slice of farmhouse cheddar!

OPINEL CHEESE KNIFE & FORK
36.75

The iconic Opinel knife design has been the same since the company started in 1890. The natural wood is from local forests in Jura and it is advised not to place the knives in a dishwasher, just simply dip the blade in hot water and wipe clean.

For the handles, simply wipe with a damp cloth and then with a dry cloth. Your knives with last for years if you take care of them!

The new Cheese Knife and Fork is a unique design and a perfect set of tools to cut cheese. Whether cutting hard or soft cheese the blade will glide through and give a perfect slice every time. The fork is there to use as a rest for the knife, but is also useful to pick up the cut pieces too.
