Ive been down in the cellar today. We have our year end stocktake coming up the week after next, so i wanted to have a looksie at some of the stock we have in our holding areas, to see what i could bring into the main cellar. I ended up moving about ten cases altogether. Some Volnay, two different Gevrey Chambertins, three different vintages and producers of Nuits St George and some Katnook Odyssey. It mean that I can start to add some of the wines to the wine-list and flesh it out a bit in those areas.
I like working down in the cellar, its nice and quiet, apart from the fans, and it lets me see what we have in person. It one thing to look at the stocksheets and see that we have a case of gevrey chambertin, but its quite another to be in the cellar, looking at a case of Dennis Mortet Gevrey Chambertin Clos de la Bussieres 1996.
Anyway, Ive got a meeting now with the chef to go through the new menu descriptions, because the new menu starts on wednesday, after the gourmet evening on Tuesday. Busy, busy, busy.
