Keep on reading to find out more about our Wine Award, which adds to our Tatler Restaurant Awards Best Wine List award.
Les 110 de Taillevent and the team at our London restaurant have been awarded a prestigious three star award in The World of Fine Wine World’s Best Wine Lists 2017, in association with Octavian Wine Vaults.
The awards, now in their fourth year, are assessed by a panel of judges containing some of the world’s leading sommeliers and wine writers, including Alder Yarrow, Elin McCoy, Ch’ng Poh Tiong, Andrew Jefford, Andreas Larsson, Francis Percival, and The World of Fine Wine editor Neil Beckett. The judges surveyed well over 4,500 wine lists from restaurants around the world before finalising the list.
A three star award recognises a great wine list and takes into consideration a very high proportion of leading producers, established and emerging; a very good mix of vintages in terms of age, maturity, quality, and style; an extensive by-the-glass and half-bottle program; and clear evidence of originality, personality, and vision.
Since initiating in 2014, the awards have gone from strength to strength, and are “rapidly becoming as coveted as Michelin Stars,” according to former World Sommelier Champion Gerard Basset MS MW OBE. On the awards, The World of Fine Wine editor Neil Beckett commented “This year we saw the strongest level of entries yet, in terms of both quality and quantity, and the introduction of the Champions’ League and exciting new categories such as Best Regional List and Best Spirits List are a reflection of the rise in standards in wine programs all over the world.”
We are proud to have been awarded this three star award in the first year of entering the Awards, and hope to develop our 1100 wine list to win more awards throughout 2017, in both London and on the international stage.
Do ask us more about this Award on your next visit to the restaurant. We’ll be more than happy to show you our Certificate.
