Straw Mat for Serving
If you're having a real feast with a proper tableful of guests, this is your go-to. For 15+ guests, this has the whole range to follow a full supper!
The citrus, peppery Sinodun Hill, a fresh Italian goat's cheese with shredded truffle, the rich buttery Tunworth, the creamy tender St. Felicien, the sweet earthy Fior di Langa, the almond nutty Beaufort, the crumbly tangy Mrs Kirkham's Lancashire, a classic winter Vacherin (ideal when baked!), the subtle woody Rollright, the milky pronounced Morbier, the delightfully spicey Stilton, the balanded Fourme d'Ambert & the buttery, creamy Gorgonzola Naturale.
P. Louis Martin NV Brut
70% Pinot Noir & 30% Chardonnay. This is a delicious Champagne, we chose it in particular (after trying a lot of Champagnes!) as it paired so well with our cheeses. It has a bright golden robe with a toasty, buttery nose. Delicate bubbles with a good balance between power, gentle acidity & freshness with a long, clean & elegant finish.
Garritano 1908 Cosenza
Ripe figs picked fresh from the tree and slow-baked. After cooling they are wrapped in fig leaves. Deep notes of liquorice and chocolate. A perfect pairing for cheese.
Unpasteurised Cow Milk
A Camembert with a filling of mascarpone and chopped black truffles. This is a rich and decadent combination. The truffles bring out the earthy, brassica notes of the cheese, while the Camembert rounds the flavour of the truffle into a massively aromatic depth. Made in-house by our cheesemongers, it is ideal for parties of 4 - 6 guests.
Quince paste, slow-cooked to become concentrated, similar to a coarse-textured jelly. Serve with hard ewe's milk cheeses, fresh or aged goat's or blues.
VIN DE PAYS D'OC, FRONTON
50% COLOMBARD & 50% SAUVIGNON BLANC
The vineyards of jean-luc & frederic ribes are situated south of toulouse & this light, zesty wine is produced from the vines of the next property as their own land is used almost entirely for red wine production. The grape varieties give a really intense aroma of grapefruit, orange & exotic fruits while the taste is fresh with an aromatic long finish. Served chilled as an aperitif or with light cheeses & simple meals.
100% Arneis. Roberto Sarotto's delicious earthy, light-textured classic wine with a light 'fizz' on the nose. Fresh and floral, with a delicate richness and slight bitterness of almond on the finish. Lovely as an aperitif, as well as accompanying white meats, fish & fresh cheese. Beautifully appointed estate allowing vines the best light and warmth.
100% Nebbiolo. Fabrizio Ressia took over his grandfather's estate in 1997 and immediately started to update and develop new practices. Weather patterns can dramatically alter the flavours of this grape style, and this young winemaker has structured his wines in a more thoughtful way, taking into account old traditions with modern methods. Notes of roasted coffee, toasted oak, black pepper give it a rather strident backbone.
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!
Dogliani Pasticceria Panforte Margherita (Classic Fruit & Nut Spiced ‘Cake’)
Dogliani makes a small production of traditional Panettone, Pan di Vino & Panforte. The Azienda was started in 1938 & is based near the marble quarries of Carrera in northern Tuscany. The Panettone recipe is very traditional using a natural fermentation to make the cakes rise & is absolutely delicious. 250g.
Chateau Le Roc, Cotes de Frontonnais
60% Negrette, 40% Syrah. This cuvée is from a selection of plots planted on stoney alluvial soil termed 'boulbenes' in the region. It is low clay with white sandy loam and naturally acidity which all goes into the big flavour profile of the wine, as well as the importance of terracing the vines to allow free drainage. The grapes are not crushed, but placed in tanks and gravity slowly presses the juice. A different working approach called 'punching' promotes flavour but softer tannins. The immediate aroma is violet and liquorice and once in the mouth there is a burst of rich fruity flavours with a white pepper hit. Fine and silky, with a wonderful length.
Bordeaux, Gironde, France
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
This estate is overseen by the esteemed Lucien Lurton family giving this classic fruity, green and flinty white wine its freshness but with a lovely rich finish. There is a juicy, brightness in the glass and lightly chilled will serve well as an aperitif as well as lighter dishes including fish and shellfish, as well as partnering fresh and matured drier goat cheeses too.
