Wine List of the Year

Wine List of the Year

The Noble Rot crew have taken home the Wine List of the Year so many times that we may soon need to put them into some sort of hall of fame in order to give everyone else a fighting chance. 

As ever, the list at Mark Andrew and Dan Keeling’s most recently launched restaurant (Soho opened in 2020) is all killer, no filler. The list is laid out in an unconventional yet eminently sensible way with the pair chopping and changing between grapes, regions and wine styles as it suits them.

The wine offer is also based on what Keeling and Andrew themselves like to drink (luckily, they have impeccable taste), with the pair able to root out the very best from both classic and less obvious regions. And the list is by no means a carbon copy of that offered at the original (and much loved) Noble Rot restaurant in Bloomsbury. The vast majority of the wines are different, reflecting the fact that the pair have not adopted a cookie-cutter approach for their second restaurant, which is on the former site of The Gay Hussar.
