Sous Le Nez Revamps Wine List Introducing More Choice And Better Value
One of Leeds' most renowned restaurants has given its wine list a major overhaul in order to make it more accessible and provide a better value offering for diners.
Sous Le Nez, on Quebec Street, has created a new 'under £30' category and added 40 new wines at this price point. The restaurant now offers a total of 64 different wines under £30, with 30 of those being under £25.
The long-established brasserie boasts one of West Yorkshire's most extensive wine lists and carries more than 350 labels from all over the world. Prices range from £3.15 for a glass for good quality house wine to several thousand pounds for a vintage wine.
Sous le Nez has made the changes to offer diners more variety at economising prices and to encourage more people to experience a wider range of wines, which they may normally associate with a higher cost.
The presentation of the Wine List Menu has also been changed with a section dedicated to wines 'under £30' and 'under £25' to allow customers to choose a wine more quickly according to their budget.
Sous Le Nez's sommelier Jean-Denis Roger spent several months researching, tasting and securing a unique selection of wines from all over the world to be included in the new price category. In total, he tasted over 100 wines to put together the final list.
He says: "Our goal was to create Leeds' most definitive wine list - one which offers not only the widest selection of flavour and style but also at price points to suit different budgets.
"Our wine list is an important part of the restaurant and we spend an above average amount of time refining and honing it. This latest change is a reflection of some of the comments we have been receiving about offering a wider choice at better value prices. We hope that customers will enjoy the broader line up of wines on offer and may try some different varieties that they've not come across before."
Sous Le Nez is open Monday to Saturday, 12pm until late.
