8 of London’s best new restaurants for wine

6th September, 2017 by Lauren Eads

3. La Dame de Pic London

Anne-Sophie Pic’s debut London venture at the Four Seasons opened earlier this year, offering classic French fine dining with a twist, and, as you would imagine, a wine list brimming with French pride, specifically of the Rhône.

Anne-Sophie Pic is one of the most highly decorated chefs in France. With six Michelin stars to her name, including three at her flagship restaurant Maison Pic in Valance on the left bank of the Rhône, in 2011 she was voted the World’s 50 Best female chef of the year. Hailing from a family of culinary whizzes, Pic is the third generation of her clan to have earned three stars, and did so with no formal training.

La Dame de Pic (a play on the French for ‘the queen of spades’) is a London spin-off of her more casual restaurant in Paris.

Its wine list is curated by German-born head sommelier Jan Konetski – a former Moët UK Sommelier of the Year – who was plucked by The Four Seasons from the three Michelin-starred Gordon Ramsay Royal Hospital Road. The gargantuan list is spread over 43 pages with a focus on the Rhône, but not exclusively so, showcasing regional classics and lesser-known whites alike. French classics are at home at Le Dame Pic, but hunt carefully and you will find some esoteric gems.

Jan oversees the wine lists for La Dame de Pic London and other dining outlets at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square, including the Ten Trinity Square Private Club.
