Cremant de Limoux

Touraine Rosé, Brut, Domaine Nicolas Paget
Made in the ‘methode traditionelle’, this 100% Grolleau – the native pink grape of Azay-le-Rideau, home to the Paget family – has not had any dosage added to it, so it’s as pure and light as a feather. So soft, and pretty in pink, it whiffs of rose fragrance, and sings of little red summer fruits such as groseilles rouges.
Btl $47 | Glass $13
Berry Bros & Rudd, Grand Cru, Champagne, NV
All the hallmarks of Grand Cru are here, with brioche and flowers on the nose and an elegant palate that marries notes of lemon grass, gingerbread and honeysuckle. A classic blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay.
75cl $103 | Glass $25
Bollinger Special Cuvée Champagne, NV
Special Cuvée is the purest expression of Bollinger’s house style. Its biscuity nose is endowed with hints of white fruit while the rich, full-bodied palate is perfectly balanced by fresh acidity and a soft, delicate mousse. Brut.
Berry’s Reserve White, Southern France
The main grape is Chardonnay in this excellently crafted blend by Jean-Luc Terrier. Light- to medium-bodied, creamy and rounded, with hints of tropical fruits, pineapple and peach. A fine food-wine as well as a satisfying aperitif.

Btl $48 | Glass $13
Viognier, Domaine de Coudoulet, Vin de Pays D’Oc 2013
This is a fine white wine with notes of ripe white fruit in the tempting aroma (peach, citrus and pineapple). The mouth-filling, dry and juicy flavour has a mild, fresh, lingering finish.
Two Vines Chardonnay Columbia Valley
This fresh and vibrant Chardonnay reveals fruit-forward aromas of apples, pear and melon with hints of sweet lemon, coconut and spice. Bright white fruit flavours, balanced by crisp acidity and a creaminess on the palate, lead to a lingering finish.
Moko Black Sauvignon Blanc
Our Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is classically aromatic with texture and breadth and a perfect match with all seafood, from the delicate fresh catch to rich and meaty barbecued king prawns. Zesty citrus with white stone fruits. Hints of gooseberry rolling into a full, layered palate and finishing with a lovely balance of texture, weight and a clean, refreshing finish.
Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru, Seguinot – Bordet 2010
An impeccable Premier Cru Chablis with energy and finesse in equal measures. Starts with delicious white stone-fruit flavours before a slightly honeyed middle and clean stony purity at the end. Or, try Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru Domaine Pinson, a very similar, classic Chablis.
Grgich-Hills Fumé Blanc, Napa Valley 2013
From cool American Canyon and Carneros vineyards in the southern tip of Napa Valley. About 80% of the Sauvignon Blanc used here is planted to the Musqué clone, which provides elegant floral aromatics. 80% of the grapes are fermented in foudres – large French oak casks – with the remainder in previously-used small French oak barrels.
Berry Reserve Rosé

A seductive, distinguished, complex and fresh rosé. The ideal accompaniment to grilled fish, grilled meats and spiced cuisine.
Tavel Rose Chateau D’Aqueria 2012
This wine has a complex and powerful nose with notes of red fruits such as strawberries and raspberries. Round and chewy, it has a pleasant mineral note and a finish that balances complexity and freshness.
Berry’s Reserve Red, Southern France
A Merlot-dominant blend, with Grenache, Syrah and Carignan – in that order – taking the supporting roles. Fruity with a plummy elegance and soft but eloquent tannins. Notes of blackberries first, followed by entwined fruit and spice with a surprisingly long finish. Jean-Luc Terrier is one of the most gifted winemakers in France. He has made his name in Burgundy and is now forging a similar reputation for his range of Languedoc wines, farmed high in the foothills of Limoux.
Btl $35 | Glass $10
Good Ordinary Claret, France 2011
Aromas of bramble fruit, a touch of cassis and warm woody notes on the nose give way to deliciously rounded, silky fruit on the palate. Immediately enjoyable, this is perfectly balanced with a long finish.
Btl $52 | Glass $14
Two Vines Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, USA

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Caves d’Ogier, Rhône, France 2007/9
Full-bodied and velvety with flavours of succulent black fruits, spices and white pepper. Terrific concentration and flavour to match the most flavoursome foods.
Marques de Riscal Rioja Gran Reserva 2005, Spain
This red is firm and polished, with savoury flavours of tobacco, liquorice and mineral yielding to a core of black cherry and spice.
The Chocolate Block, Western Cape, South Africa 2013
Bursts with raspberries, allspice and a grapefruit-cool-climate-Syrah typicity underscored by dark fruit and floral incense. Structurally more intense than recent vintages with the Porseleinberg Syrah starting to make an impact, this has a refreshing acidity that lures you back for more. A pure, focused, textured and penetrating palate.
Grgich-Hills Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 2012
The Yountville Vineyard forms the heart of this Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, with Rutherford and Calistoga vineyards rounding out the blend. To boost complexity, the vintner relies on a traditional Bordeaux blend of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, with a dash of Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Chateau Palmer, Margaux, France 1996
Exquisite and beguiling, yet bursting with oomph – and a three- to four-minute finish. Has real purity and grace, with warm, sweet red fruit and a hint of vanilla leading you to a palate that is plump and fleshy, yet elegant and sophisticated.
Boal, 10-yr-old, Vinhos Barbeito
Boal is a noble grape variety grown in Madeira. Expect flavours of figs and raisins and a voluptuous, lingering sweetness.

XO Fine Champagne Cognac
Cognac has been created by distillers in Charente since 1270. This very fine Grande Champagne Cognac is made from the grapes of vines grown in the heart of the region, where the chalky soil provides optimal conditions. The full-bodied palate is crammed with dried fruit, nuts, spice and gentle oak.
1984 Berrys’ Frapin, Early Landed Cognac
An intense, wonderfully balanced and flavoursome fully aged cognac.
Fine Old Bas Armagnac
With a base age of 20 years, the aromas are concentrated fruit and peppery spice and the palate is lively and juicy. Well-composed and robust, as good Armagnac should be.
1960 Armagnac, J. Nismes-Delclou
The oldest Armagnac distiller, established in 1832 by Baron Hausmann. Long ageing in old casks has made this 1960 cuvée into an incredibly velvety Armagnac, full of seductive notes of violets and cinnamon, caramel and dried stone fruits.
The Glenrothes Select Reserve Speyside
John Ramsay, the Malt Master of Glenrothes, has crafted this Select Reserve. Pale gold in colour, it has a bouquet of American oak, vanilla and coconut, with the merest hint of plums. The palate is full and malty, medium-sweet, with vanilla and orange zest.
Berrys’ Bladnoch 1992
Bladnoch distillery is the southernmost in Scotland, producing a delicately aromatic whisky of some considerable class and worthy reputation in farmhouse-style buildings that date from the early 1800s. Delicate herbal and citrus aromas prevail – in particular, a lemon-grass element. The palate offers some grassy, dry, lemon zest flavours with sweet outcrops of honey and menthol. An appetisingly fresh, dry finish eventually succumbs to pulsing bursts of lemon peel.
Bowmore, Islay 1994
This remarkably aromatic whisky offers the trademark Islay scents of peat with leather and yellow fruit. The palate shows sooty smoke and ample fruit and leafy notes.
Berry’s Own Selection Bruichladdich, Islay Single Malt,1991
Bruichladdich is by Islay standards a gentler sort of malt whisky, though it carries traits of the island’s noted peaty, saline style and is no lightweight in terms of balance and complexity. This expression delivers aromas of honey and nuts, peach skins and perhaps even banana sandwiches. The palate balances salty notes against soft fruits and eventually you are gripped by the oak as it subsides to reveal a refreshing, appetising and savoury finale.
1992 Berry’s Own Selection Glenlossie, Single Malt Whisky, Speyside
Glenlossie, founded in 1876 by John Duff, lies just to the south of Elgin. The nose gives an impression of dusty jute sacks in a spice warehouse. There is a fruity, honeyed depth adding weight. The palate is playful with a creamy texture as the fruit and walnut notes intermingle. Spice seems to have the final say and the finish has a gentle, lingering quality
The Glenrothes Select Reserve Speyside 1995
A ‘come-hither’ nose filled with exotic spices is followed by a citrus and fruity richness coated in honeyed butterscotch. These flavours and more are delivered on the palate, culminating in a long, rich and satisfying fruity spiciness. Preferable post-dinner.
Berry’s Own Selection Invergordon 1971
The aromas are of concentrated dried fruit with a bourbon-like vanilla intensity. Deeply engaging and exotic, this is a full, succulent 40-year-old whisky with a most velvety texture.
Admiral Rodney 12 yrs, Saint Lucia
Named after the vanquisher of the French Fleet in the 1782 battle in Saint Lucian waters. Look for flavours of crème brûlée and hints of spice, vanilla and chocolate. Aged in American oak bourbon casks by Saint Lucia Distillers, a small and passionate team of rum makers, with many international awards won for their premium rums.
Chairman’s Reserve 5 yrs, Saint Lucia
The idea to build the Boucan restaurant came after an evening of drinking Chairman’s on the rocks! An easy-drinking rum with a mellow but complex mix of ripe raisins, tobacco and spice.

Mount Gay Old Cask, Barbados

El Dorado 15 yrs, Guyana
A very popular, multi-award winning rum, somewhat Scotch-like, with subtle peaty overtones, dry caramel and grilled tropical fruit flavours braced by warm alcohol and firm, smooth oak spice. Aromas of banana and cedar.
El Dorado Reserve 21 yrs, Guyana
Multi-award winning and complex with a dry-yet-fruity full body of toffee, coffee and spice. A long finish of roasted nuts with evolving layers of tobacco, chocolate and spice.
