Wine List Confidential: La Dame de Pic London

Anne-Sophie Pic’s debut London venture at the Four Seasons, offering classic French fine dining with a twist, opened earlier this year, and has recently been awarded a Michelin star.

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. 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 is a London spin-off of her more casual restaurant in Paris. Its wine list is curated by German-born head sommelier Jan Konetski, 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, 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.
