A great lunch at Terroirs with lovely wines

It’s always good to lunch at Terroirs. The combination of the food, wine and the vibe in the place makes it one of my favourite stops in London. On Friday I popped in with a friend fresh off a plane from New Zealand and we lunched really well. Above: Burrata, Smoked Eel, and Chopped Raw Beef, Swede & Truffle.

And this is classic Terroirs fare: Duck Rilletes and Pork and Pistachio Terrine.

Wines, set 1. A very elegant Ganevat Jura red with just a hint of spicy funk. Port Flirtation is a super pure Californian red (Carignan/Zinfandel blend, 11.3% alcohol) from Martha Stoumen that is the essence of drinkability. The Brutal red from Gut Oggau: very pale, peppery and a wee bit funky. And Colfundo is a superb reductive Prosecco that’s non-disgorged from Casa Belfi.

Wines set 2: Thierry Navarre’s Ribeyranc from the Languedoc. A forgotten variety: beautifully supple and drinkable with some meaty notes. Bow & Arrow’s Melon from Oregon, which is just beautiful. The Burja is bright, focused and fruity: a Sauvignon alternative. And the Chateau Chalon from the Jura is salty, tangy and delicious: a flor wine of great intensity.

There’s a lot of joy t0 be had at a place like Terroirs.

    Love Terroirs, seems to get the interesting and eclectic wine vibe just right, without being precious about it. Great dropping in to Caves de Pyrenes when I get a chance too
