Noble Rot

The people behind Noble Rot magazine have opened a wine bar - but not any old wine bar. They've enlisted not only an ex-Sportsman chef but the Sportsman's Exec Chef Stephen Harris is advising on the menu too.

"Hurry along to try the main course of turbot braised in oxidised 1998 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru. There can’t be that many bottles left of the blighted great wine.
