Wine List Confidential: Bubbledogs

Founded in 2012, Bubbledogs offers a Champagne list bristling with grower Champagnes.

Considering the margins applied to the wines, it is probably the best place to drink grower Champagne in London, a true Who’s Who of great producers that would grace the finest Michelin-starred tables in town: Larmandier-Bernier; Egly-Ouriet; Georges Laval; Laherte-Frères; Benoit Lahaye; Vilmart; Chartogne-Taillet; Francis Boulard; Christophe Mignon – and so it goes on.

Billed as a ‘Champagne and hot dog specialist’, this quirky restaurant is the brainchild of restaurateurs Sandia Chang and her husband, James Knappett (who is also the chef behind the pair’s Michelin- starred offshoot Kitchen Table, located at the back of Bubbledogs).

Those who may want a glass of wine can request something, but it would be churlish (and foolhardy, given the friendly margins) to drink anything other than fizz at this restaurant.

CURRENT POSITION ON WINE LIST CONFIDENTIAL: 26

CURRENT WINE LIST CONFIDENTIAL OVERALL SCORE: 91.8
