Noble Rot, the magazine of 'Sex, Drugs & Pinot Noir' has an impressive repertoire - since its launch in 2013, its creators (Dan Keeling and Mark Andrew) opened a restaurant and wine bar in Bloomsbury, London, aptly named after where it all started - Noble Rot.
This mag is a sweet blend of gastronomy and the creative arts and has been the home of exciting wine and food writing since its launch.
Lucky for those who cannot travel to this award-winning restaurant and wine bar, this magazine is the paper embodiment.
Noble Rot, in a nutshell, is pure, unapologetic indulgence. Like a decadent meal and full-bodied wine combo, you emerge from the pages feeling content and full. If you are looking for a vibrant and authentic read on wine, with a healthy dose of cuisine and music, then this is your next read.
What to expect from this issue?
In the cork poppin’, gut bustin’, merry makin’ new issue of Noble Rot magazine...
- We spotlight the wines of Catalonia and Jurançon, as well as Burgundy’s often under- appreciated Aligoté. From Els Jelepins and Pepe Raventos to Sylvain Pataille and the uber- cult Clos Joliette, we tell the stories behind some of Europe’s most exciting domaines.
- We meet the ‘hedonist in the cellar’, novelist and wine writer Jay McInerney.
- We travel to Épernay to taste a bottle of 1895 Pol Roger recently excavated from the site of the domaine’s historic 1900 cellar collapse, and ask how wines age.
- We take a retrospective look at 150 years of Soho restaurant culture, and Suzanne Moore celebrates Greek St’s famous Gay Hussar. Notorious in its day for being the lair of many a plotting politician, it will re-open as Noble Rot Soho in late-spring 2020
- We feature stories about Ballymaloe Cookery School, the 30th anniversary of Marco Pierre White’s White Heat and Emilia Romagna gastronomy, as well as reviews, recipes and musings from Simon Hopkinson, Marina O’Loughlin, Alastair Little, Andrew Jefford, Stephen Harris, Tom Brown, Russell Norman, Rowley Leigh, George Reynolds, Zeren Wilson, Simon J Woolf, Nina Caplan, Henry Harris, Morgan Dunn and John Niven, among much more...
