Your Sommelier is a new offering from two Frenchmen who became disillusioned by the quality of Wine available in the UK and decided to set up their own business.
The first two wines I tried were both classically elegant and impressively adept - more so than their choice of moniker.
Domaine Tour Saint-Michel Chateauneuf de Pape, 2013 (£23) fresh dark and red plum fruit, pepperiness and graphite with a supple, inky texture.
Very adept and elegant.
Match with pepper steak or roast beef.
Hubert Bochard Pouilly-Fume
2013 (£13) ripe white peach and apricot fruit with aromatic lemongrass and citrus peel and saline, pebbly mineralogy.
Very adept, very elegant.
Drink as an aperitif, match with light starters or mains such as monkfish in herb broth.
