Wine List Confidential: The Square

Still one of the top-draw wine experiences in London with a sommelier team that is at the top of its game.

Reams of fantastic vintage Champagne, with special focus on Selosse and Billecart- Salmon – are available if you have the spondulicks, while the most celebrated appellations of France, Italy and Spain are exhaustively covered.

The glass listings are particularly compelling, including novel listings such as Vacqueryas Blanc (Domaine Monardiere) and accessible claret in the form of Brane-Cantenac second wine Baron de Brane. Patrick Javillier Clos du Cromin Meursault and Domaine Arlaud Gevrey-Chambertin are also among current wines being poured by the glass, ensuring you don’t need to wade into a bottle to appreciate loftier appellations. There’s a healthy listing of older vintages of Domaine Trimbach, too.

CURRENT POSITION ON WINE LIST CONFIDENTIAL: 18
