Cos Frappato at Terroirs, a nice end to a busy day

It has been a long day. It began with a Bernard Magrez tasting and lunch at L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon, which was very impressive (write up to follow). Then I went for a quick pint at the Coach and Horses with Douglas Blyde, Richard Siddle and Caspar Auchterlonie, before hot footing down to the Atlas, near Earls Court, for the ASDW tasting (write up to follow). Then I was off to Terroirs for dinner with the other convenors of the London Gastronomy Seminars.

Food was good as always, and we washed it down with two Italian wines: Monte di Grazia 2007 (which I reviewed here a while back) and the Cos Frappato 2008 Sicilia. This is a fantastic wine: fresh, vibrant, joyful and perfumed with lovely cherry fruit. Really pure and focused, without any heaviness, but there’s seriousness underneath all the fun. Fantastic, and a great way to round off a busy day.

  • I do love Terroirs – food, atmosphere and wines are really great with a welcome from Nigel that makes you feel so at home…I went a few weeks ago but was really treated last October I had a busy day a bit like yours… The Puligny-Montrachet & St Emilion Lunch at Berry Brothers and then I was lucky enough to go to Terroirs (not too eat as we were full) with my brother and Daniel Johnnes who was visiting from The Dinex Group which includes Daniel Boulud’s 3* Michelin restaurant in New York. It was a real pleasure to be with experts sharing such interesting natural wines. I can’t wait to go back and be further educated by the wonderfully informative wine list and knowledgeable staff.
