  1. Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth

    Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth

    £14.50

    £14.50

    Right! Grow up! Stop sniggering like a schoolchild because you've seen the word prat. It isn't prat, because it's French. So it's praaaaah. See? Besides, titter as you might, this vermouth is very far from prattish in any sense of the word. A 'prat', the Oxford English Dictionary would have it, is 'an incompetent or stupid person; an idiot.'*

    So how could the word 'prat' be associated with an aromatised wine this good, based on Picpoul and Clairette grapes, and infused among other things with Roman Chamomile, Nutmeg from Indonesia and Bitter Orange from Tunisia? Yeah. And Gentian from France. Who's the prat now?

    *'Prat' also means 'a person's buttocks.' I bet you didn't know that.
  2. Picpoul de Pinet Camp de Rousse 2013 white wine

    Picpoul de Pinet Camp de Rousse 2016

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Get ready for a crashing tidal wave of people claiming they've known about Picpoul for years, have always known about it, and insist it's the only white wine they'll ever drink. But the wannabes might soon have to find a new darling to boast about as this useful dry white appellation has gradually come to the attention of a wider audience. Picpoul the wine is made from Picpoul the grape - and this is a clean and dry affair, but not too plain and simple, with just the right amount of subtle fruit. Perfect balance.
