Charles Taylor targets northern retailers

Charles Taylor Wines is to host a tasting in Leeds for independent merchants in the north of England next month.


This is the first time that the normally London-bound merchant has held a tasting in the north of the country.

Jeremy Lithgow of Charles Taylor Wines said that it was felt that there was a lot of “unrealised potential” in the north for the merchant’s portfolio.

Leeds was chosen over Manchester as it was felt to be more central and made access from Newcastle, Edinburgh, Nottingham, York and Sheffield easier. Furthermore, the city is apparently “circled by quality independent merchants”.

The line-up for the tasting includes Tarlant Champagne, Jacques Carillon, Billaud-Simon and Rossignol-Trapet from Burgundy, Max-Ferd Richter and Steffen Christmann from Germany and Domaine la Bouissiere and Bosquet des Papes from the Rhône.

Mature Bordeaux from Fourcas Dupré and Vieux Château Gaubert among others will also be on show.

The tasting will take place on Tuesday 16 October from 11am to 7pm at Create Restaurant, Atlas House, 31 King Street, Leeds, LS1 2HL.
