Lockdown’s Too Dull to Drink Bad Wine 

Are you tired of pointless meed-ja conjecture, or concerned at the bodgers-in-chief’s lack of direction? Or maybe you’re frustrated that your attempts at home-schooling owe more to Grange Hill than A-Level classics at Eton? Well, so are we, although we’re keeping ourselves sane by drinking some of the most exciting wines in the world – something which we’re pleased to offer to you too.
Three years ago, Noble Rot co-founder Mark Andrew and I launched sibling company Keeling Andrew & Co to import some of our favourite producers. 

From up and coming Burgundians such as Eleni & Edouard Vocoret and Maison MC Thiriet, to superstars such as Jean-Marc Roulot and Ulysse Collin, our philosophy is to only work with domaines whose wines we love drinking ourselves. 

Having now diversified from exclusively supplying restaurants and wine shops, we’d love to offer you some of the world’s most exciting wines too. 
For the next few months we are offering cases of favourite bottles, from our restaurants’ ‘house’ white and reds to companion boxes to the award winning Noble Rot book, ‘Wine from Another Galaxy’.

Also, if you’d like us to help put together a bespoke case we’d love to discuss your requirements. Please contact our man on the ground
Chin Chin,

All prices below are for cases of six bottles and include nationwide delivery.

Rotters’ House Wines: £70 per six (choose all red, all white, or a mix)
Sourcing ‘house’ wines at low prices that we actually want to drink is the holy grail of being a wine buyer, so when we founded Chin Chin, our collaboration with Quinta do Ermizio in Vinho Verde, Portugal, and tasted Gran Cerdo, a Tempranillo grown organically in Rioja, we felt a bit like Indiana Jones watching Nazis melt at the finale of Raiders of the Lost Ark. But not only that: Chin Chin also features beautiful label artwork by Jose Mendez, a stalwart Noble Rot magazine illustrator, which become a cult classic on Instagram this summer.

Standard mixed case includes three each of the following 750ml bottles:
2020 Vinho Verde ‘Chin Chin’; Quinta do Ermizio (Portugal)
2019 Tempranillo ‘Gran Cerdo’; Gonzalo Gonzalo (Rioja, Spain)


Rotters’ Greatest Hits 1: £95 per six

‘Greatest Hits’ is six of Rotter Towers’ most popular by-the-glass listings, from our much loved ‘Chin Chin’ Vinho Verde, to Koehler-Ruprecht’s delicious dry Riesling and Luneau-Papin's crisp Folle Blanche (one of the Loire Valley's most historic, but seldom seen, white grapes). Reds include David Duband's benchmark Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Telmo Rodriguez’s bold, black fruited Alicante Mourvèdre 'Almuvedre', and our organic house red ‘Gran Cerdo’. 

Case includes one each of the following 750ml bottles:

2020 Vinho Verde ‘Chin Chin’; Quinta do Ermizio (Vinho Verde, Portugal)
2019 Riesling Kabinett Trocken ‘Kallstadt’; Koehler-Ruprecht (Pfalz, Germany)

Wine from Another Galaxy ‘One’: £150 per six
All bottles made by vignerons featured in the new Noble Rot book
We all know never drink and drive, but drink-reading in lockdown is just the thing. Join Wine from Another Galaxy’s Rotter’s Road Trip, visiting our favourite domaines, and drink their wines as you do. 
Box 1 
Comando G and Telmo Rodriguezare producers at the vanguard of the New Spain renaissance. Comando G’s silky 'Bruja de Rozas', from Sierra de Gredos west of Madrid, was inspired by their love of Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s iconic Château Rayas,  while Rodriguez's Gaba do Xil Godello is a terroir expressive beauty. Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Blanc 'Les Femelottes' and Edouard & Eleni Vocoret's Chablis 'Bas de Chapelot' are appellation-defining wines, as is Julien Sunier’s fabulous Fleurie. Finally, there is no better introduction to Greece's premier red grape, Xinomavro, than Kostis Dalamara's Naoussa. 

Case includes one each of the following 750ml bottles:

2018 Gaba do Xil Godello; Telmo Rodriguez (Valdeorras, Spain)
2018 Bourgogne Blanc ‘Les Femelottes’; Chavy-Chouet (Burgundy, France)
2018 Chablis ‘Bas de Chapelot’; Eleni & Edouard Vocoret (Burgundy, France) 
2017 Fleurie; Sunier (Beaujolais, France)
2018 Naoussa; Dalamara (Macedonia, Greece) 
2018 ‘Bruja de Rozas’; Comando G (Sierra de Gredos, Spain)

Wine from Another Galaxy ‘Two’: £255 per six
Box 2

Jean-Marie Guffens’ interstellar Mâcon-Pierreclos, from humble Southern Burgundy, regularly bests top Puligny-Montrachet in blind tastings. Likewise, Envinate's  Táganan  Blanco, and the late Haridimos Hatzidakis’ masterful Santorini Assyrtiko 'Nykteri' punch well above their weight. Lopez de Heredia provided one of our most memorable winery visits in ‘Wine from Another Galaxy’; not only do their mould-covered cellars hold the world record for most cobwebs in one place, but their 1964 Rioja was one of the best wines we’ve ever drunk. Finally, David Duband’s Gevrey-Chambertin is a beautiful village red Burgundy, while Frank Cornelissen Mount Etna Nerello Mascalese vividly calls to mind the volcanic soils on which it is grown.  

Case includes one each of the following 750ml bottles:
2017 Assyrtiko ‘Nykteri’; Hatzidakis (Santorini, Greece) 
2018 Táganan Blanco, Envinate (Tenerife, Spain)
2016 Mâcon-Pierreclos; Guffens-Heynen (Burgundy, France)
2016 ‘Munjebel’; Frank Cornelissen (Sicily, Italy)
2018 Gevrey-Chambertin; David Duband (Burgundy, France)
2007 Rioja Reserva; Lopez de Heredia (Rioja, Spain) 


Next Generation Burgundy: £245 per six

Burgundy will always be our first love, and here’s a beautiful selection from a few of the region’s up and coming stars. Dureuil-Janthial is setting the benchmark for the Côte Chalonnaise, with his wines from Rully. Elsewhere, a roll-call including David Duband, David Croix, Chavy-Chouet, Jules Desjourney and Douhairet-Porcheret is one of reliable Burgundian brilliance. 

Case includes one each of the following 750ml bottles:

2018 Rully Blanc; Dureuil-Janthial (Burgundy, France)
2017 Pouilly-Loché; Jules Desjourneys (Burgundy, France)
