I took a quick trip to London, and of course had to stop by a few wine stores. On my list was Berry Bros & Rudd. A very cool little store near Picadilly, with a pretty impressive selection. The boutique style store had an old interior, with creaky floors and old artifacts.
The staff was very welcoming and helpful, making you feel special as a customer. There were two main rooms, one for spirits and one for wine. I of course spent most of my time in the wine room, browsing the various regions, my favorites of course being Burgundy and Barolo.
One of the features I enjoyed at Berry Bros & Rudd was the “Berry’s Selections”. Here they had chosen various wines from different regions, showing you what they could recommend. In this section I found a Comte Lafon, Macon-Villages. A perfect example of a very good wine that doesn’t cost a fortune, in contrast with the various Gaja and other expensive wines. In other words, a wine store that fits everyone’s needs.
