France

France!!  This is the playground of Bacchus himself mes amis. One’s tastebuds tingle at the though of a good claret, a fine Burgundy or a spicy Rhone wine. Nothing compliments a good fillet steak like a good French red and nothing compliments one’s Dover sole (from Green’s or Wilton’s) like a lovely dry white from Burgundy, the Loire or Bordeaux.

BORDEAUX – RED

Chateau Coutet 2005  – St Emillion9/10 – Jammy, dark chocolate, ripe and fresh fruit character on the nose. Full-bodied and right up the Doctor’s alleyway.  To be drunk with one’s chums with a succulent fillet of beef.

Ch.Treviac 2009 – 7/10 Full bodied Bordeaux wine drunk by your dear Doctor in Cote Restaurant. Always reliable even if it will never be up there with the best.

BURGUNDY – RED

Chambolle Musigny 2007 – Joseph Drouhin9/10 – A fruit-filled mouthful of delight. This has raspberries aplenty and delights the palate with food or on it’s own. But be warned this is not for those without deepest pockets.

BURGUNDY – WHITE

Chardonnay d’ Ardeche – Louis Latour 8/10 –  A veritable joy to drink. Creamy, yet with a citrus flavour to cut through and deliver a wonderfully balanced wine.
