Blanc to change Le Manoir list

Published:  23 July, 2008

Raymond Blanc is to change the wine list at his Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons restaurant in Oxfordshire - but he will not be ditching New World wines, as has been reported elsewhere.
On the restaurant website, Blanc says: We are removing from our cellars any red wines that are overoaked, unbalanced or lack tannins. Those whites strongly flavoured with vanilla or that are too buttery will also go.'

And Le Manoir sommelier Xavier Rousset told Harpers: We will be adding wines from the lesser-known regions of France, such as Roussillon, and we will be getting rid of a few New World wines - those that have a bit too much oak or lack a little finesse.'
