A wonderful offer from Berry Bros & Rudd, this. Wine-loving readers will know that once or twice a month we hold Spectator winemakers’ lunches at 22 Old Queen Street. A well-known winemaker will bring some wines and chat about them to a maximum of 14 readers over lunch in the boardroom. These hugely entertaining affairs must surely be the best value in town: just £75 a pop for four courses of jolly decent grub and as much fine wine as you can drink; not to mention the chance to chat to some of the world’s leading winemakers and to meet like-minded Speccie readers. Little wonder that we always have to flick the lights to turf folk out as afternoon turns into evening. Anyway, the point I’m getting to is that Mark Walford was our most recent vigneron and brought with him wines from Le Soula, the remarkable organic/biodynamic estate high in the Fenouillèdes mountains of southwest France. All of us present were blown away by the wines’ freshness, by their individuality, their concentration, their complexity and their, well, downright tastiness. I just knew we had to offer them here.
