If you had any doubts that there was a natural wine bandwagon rolling just check this: Harvey Nichols has put a list of biodynamic wines into its revamped flagship restaurant in Knightsbridge.
According to a press release I've just received:
The extensive wine list at Fifth Floor Restaurant now features a brand new range of 30 biodynamic wines and Champagnes . . . In recent years, some of the internationally renowned estates have started producing biodynamic wines with great success and Majorie Cropp [the Fifth Floor sommelier] is excited to be able to present these wines to Harvey Nichols diners. Champagnes include Jérôme Prevost, La Closerie Les Béguines, Pinot Meunier; whites include Meursault, Domaine des Comtes Lafon, Burgundy, France, 2005 and reds Flor de Pingus, Ribera del Duero, Spain, 2008.
Not sure what I think about this. Great that more people will get a chance to drink biodynamic wines but not sure I want them to be chic. And will there be enough genuinely naturally made wine to satisfy this new demand?
