Top 10 London wine lists by price

8. Clipstone


A restaurant that’s already created a huge buzz within the first few weeks since opening, thanks to a flurry of glowing reviews, including this five-star one from AA Gill.

It’s a succinct wine list which manages to say a lot with little. One thing you’ll spot instantly when looking at the single-page wine list is its ‘On-Tap’ section.

Check out also Cahors minimal intervention winery Mas del Périé’s ‘Mr Thirsty’ vin de soif, a crisp, peachy Gruner from WK Huber in Niederosterreich, or a nice Macon Chardonnay from Le Grappin. In London restaurant terms, bargains, the lot of them.

The rest of the list makes short but compelling reading – surely the best kind. A grassy, almondy Quealy Turbul Friulano from Mornington might pair with Ravioli of hay-baked carrot & ricotta, brown butter & hazelnuts; Tondonia 2003 white Rioja from Lopez de Heredia will never not be a good choice.

Among the reds, Marcarini’s Langhe Nebbiolo is decent value for a major Piedmont name, at £48; there’s also some interesting more mature stuff, including a 1999 Bordeaux blend from DeLille Cellars (£75) in Washington State.
