“A Cellar Full of Surprises”

The Hotel’s Cellars provide a dark and still resting place for lots of wine treasures, many which are difficult to find elsewhere and which can only be bought in limited quantities. The half bottle & large bottle selection are at the back of our list.

Most of the Wines in the 2006 collection are directly imported * from Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone, Alsace and Languedoc - Roussillon, which offers both quality & value. All the producers are visited and each wine carefully tasted with the help of my Brother-in-Law, Paul Avril, wine grower in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. We have also imported a selection of excellent Italian Estate & South African Wines, all of which are well worth trying.

The Wines are chosen to deliver a good blend of quality, at excellent prices. Spending is no guarantee of quality, careful tasting, however is.

POUILLY FUISSE “Les Crays” 2003 €36.00
Andre Forest

Andre produces an excellent Pouilly Fuissse from this
8 acre estate. The wines, made from the Chardonnay
grape, are matured in small oak casks and bottled
after one year. There is very little filtration for fear
of removing the flavour and character of the wine.

fruit and nutty scent. Forest’s wines are found in the most restaurants of Paris.



CHATEAUNEUF “Clos des Papes” 2003 €58.00
Paul Avril

Paul and his son Vincent are one of the last to harvest,
always seeking the extra ripeness that give the wine flesh and
rich fruit. This excellent Chateauneuf was awarded the
maximum five stars by Robert Parker.
It is a very rich, fat flavoured, full-bodied wine with a
high berry scented bouquet

Chateauneuf de Pape is unique in that it may be made from
13 different grape varieties, giving it a complexity seldom
matched by other wines. In “Clos de Papes” they use 70%
Grenache, 20% Mourdvedre and 8% Syrah and the rest Vacarese and Muscardin.
The vinification is totally classic, with little or no filtration.

Avril’s Chateauneuf is one of the finest and longest lived of the appellation..


Kelly’s selection Red, White and Rose are “Appellation Controlee” wines from the Rhone Valley and Burgundy, and were specially labelled and bottled for Kelly’s. The label was commissioned and painted by artist William Crozier. We also include special Table Wines from Chateauneuf area “Le Petit Vin d’Avril” and a dry white Chardonnay from Burgundy.

as the classified growths of Bordeaux. Rich and complex
with a great bouquet.

A great year for Cabernet, although the overall vintage will be good rather than great. More structured than the 1997’s.

*189 CHATEAU LANESSAN Haut Medoc 42.00
An insider’s wine often of classified growth quality. The 1996 was
outstandingly dark in colour with amazing aromas.

Chateau Margaux’s 2nd wine. A delicious example of the
Margaux property. The wine is forward, round and generous,
with lots of black fruit and subtle oakiness.

Excellent sunshine, giving an abundance of big fruit. The best vintage since 1990, although a huge increase in Bordeaux prices resulted.

*198 CHATEAU LUCIE Grand Cru St. Emilion 44.00
A deep colour soft and round wine. A well made wine of fruit
intermixed with spice.

*177 CROIX DE BEAUCAILLOU St. Julien 65.00
From the exceptional estate of Ducru-Beaucaillou. This second
wine has a high percentage of Cabernet-Sauvignon, giving
ripe fruit and elegance.

*203 CHATEAU LYNCH-BAGES Cru Classe Pauillac 145.00
Ranks among one of the top vintages ever made at Lynch-Bages.
Has got all the power, yet the elegance and blackcurrant fruit.

*167 CHATEAU PALMER Cru Classe Margaux 180.00
Made by the famous Sichel Family. An excellent wine with fine ripeness
and fruit, already drinking well. Awarded 90 points in the Parker Guide.

Unfortunately the grapes were picked during the September rains, however,
some very attractive wines were made by the best growers who avoided rot.

*148 CHATEAU SOCIANDO MALLET Cru Bourgois Haut Medoc 75.00
This wine equals many classified growths. It has a surging
reputation for its ruby black, full-bodied wines.

Rain during harvest diluted the concentration of many of the 1992 Bordeaux
wines. A vintage to drink sooner rather than later and offers excellent value.

*176 CHATEAU LEOVILLE-LAS-CASES Cru Classe St. Julien 110.00
Unquestionably one of the great names and wines of Bordeaux.
Outstanding concentration and fruit for a difficult vintage. Delon’s
‘92 was one of the stars of a difficult vintage. Excellent drinking now.

Described as a good to excellent year, wines are now reaching full maturity.

*202 CHATEAU LA LAGUNE Haut Medoc 125.00
Its best vintage of the 70’s, still youthful with oodles of fruit
and a bouquet of roasted nuts and plums.

The Rhone Valley’s 140 mile stretch supports some of the rarest and most famous wines in the wine- drinking world. Most of the Rhone produces full, tannic and generous red wines. The white wines are
rich, strong and fine-flavoured.
