Top 10 London Cora-venues

The Remedy

Remedy

‘Relaxed, friendly, a bit geeky’ is how The Remedy describes itself. There’s a clear aim to show the great bounty of characterful wines being made by small-scale, artisanal producers around the world.

It’s done in an entertaining way too – on the list, rosés are described as ‘Reds cavorting as whites’ and are followed by orange wines, described as ‘Whites emulating reds’. Champagne comes with an explanatory subheading that says simply ‘Yes’.

Whites are headed under ‘Quench’, ‘Cleanse’ and ‘Nourish’; reds as ‘Quench’, ‘Whet’, ‘Entice’ and ‘Feed’.

Much sympathy with natural and low-intervention winemaking is evident throughout the list, which is updated every week or two.

The Cellar options are pretty compelling and – here’s where Coravin has helped The Remedy to innovate – are all available in half bottles (dispensed by Coravin) for half the list price, giving you a chance to dip into such great wines as Hubert Lamy ‘La Princée’ Saint-Aubin (£75), Dauvissat ‘Vaillins’ Chablis ’09 or ’12 (both £90), Bernard Maume’Belle Croix’ Nuits-St-George 2004 (£68) and Corbineau ‘Beaulieu’ Chinon 1989 (£85).

There’s a superb range of Pereira D’Oliveiras Madeiras, magnums of Testalonga and one of the most impressive lists of orange wine in London.

‘Monday Night Fever’ is a bold attempt to draw people in on the most punishingly drab day of the working week when The Remedy offers 12 wines by the bottle at a 50% discount, while there is always a chalkboard full of intriguing by-the-glass option to choose from.

Also very salutary is The Remedy’s ‘Oyster Happy Hour(s)’, weekdays from 4–6pm and all day Saturday, when you can enjoy gorgeous oysters for just a pound a pop with, perhaps, something from the generous list of grower Champagnes.
