Like everyone in the restaurant ‘biz’ we have had to make a few changes. Please take a couple of moments to read through the following just to familiarise yourself with the ‘new normal’ at Paysanne when you arrive.

Firstly, for the time being, our maximum table size is 4, but hopefully that will change soon. We have a priority system at the front door: anyone leaving has right of way over those about to enter, to prevent any congestion at the door. We are staggering our bookings to avoid such crowding in any case, but them’s the rules!

Also, we have an automatic gel dispenser by the door as you enter, so please make use of that upon arrival. At this point, we’ll have to take a quick temperature check with an infra-red forehead thermometer. I’m afraid that if your temperature is over 38˚C, we cannot let you in!

We will have taken at least one phone number when you booked but we also have a QR code for track and trace purposes, and we would appreciate it if you could give it a quick scan if your mobile phone is smarter than my ancient relic of a thing.

We have replaced our cotton napkins with disposable paper versions (3-ply, mark you). I’m afraid that needs must in these desperate times! The menus, similarly, will be for one-off use for the time being - by all means pre-order before you arrive if you like.

Your waiting staff will be masked up for their safety and yours, and we will all be engaged in a constant ritual of wiping down door handles and salt & pepper cellars, etc.

That’s it. We hope very much that these will be temporary measures and the situation will soon revert back to where we left off, leaving the pandemic behind like some strange fever dream we all shared but aren’t really sure was real.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you back with open arms - figuratively speaking, of course.

Please ask any of our waiting staff for advice on any allergies you might have.

Wine List

House Red

1. L’HERBE-SAINTE. MERLOT

Wonderful, versatile red from a small family-run vineyard less than an hour’s drive from Les Patrons’s front door. Clean fruity nose with accents of ripe cherry, plums and liquorice. A fresh, fruity wine with pleasant aromatic expression and length.


£19.75(Bottle)
£13.50 (Half-litre carafe)

House White

2. DOMAINE LA COLOMBETTE. SAUVIGNON.
This has that wonderful elderflower nose with the dryness you would expect from a good Sancerre and is highly reminiscent of the popular New Zealand Sauvignons.


£19.75 (Bottle)
£13.50 (Half-litre carafe)

Our House Wines are also available by the glass:
250ml (£7.00), 125ml (£4.75)

Midi Rouge

3. L’HERBE-SAINTE ‘HARMONIE’. MALBEC 2018.
Malbec is an ancient French variety best known for those intense wines of Cahors and in Bordeaux where it is used for blending. During the last thirty odd years however, the huge success of the grape in the Mendoza Valley of Argentina has had the more progressive French growers looking at it again. This is a particularly good example from the Minervois region, intense, robust and spicy. Not for the faint hearted!
£24.75

4. DOMAINE LA COLOMBETTE. PINOT NOIR. 2018
To our knowledge, the only Pinot Noir grown in the region, this is an amazing wine, miles better than anything you will find in Burgundy at this price level. It has been aged in demi-muid (double-sized) oak barrels and if your are a Pinot fan, you’ll love this.
£25.75

6. CHÂTEAU DE L’HERBE SAINE. MINERVOIS PRESTIGE 2018
This is the high days and holidays wine from one of the very best winemakers in the region. Powerful and bursting with fruit and spicy aromas....Quite exceptional!
£29.50

Midi Blanc

7. DOMAINE LA COLOMBETTE. SOUVIGNIER-MUSCARIS. 2018
There has always been innovation at Colombette. These are winemakers who are constantly looking to improve and they were into Bio wine production for years before it became all the rage.

They now have a range of wines based on hybrid vines, which are disease resistant and require a minimum of sulphide spraying. We know a number of people who find sulphides a problem so this is important. Sulphides are also a major contributing factor in hangovers, so this is an excellent wine for anyone keen to skip the next-day blues.

Year on year we have seen an improvement in these wines but now I feel that we have the finished article, and here it is! This is a gold medal winner and the Muscat which comes through in the blend gives it an extra distinction. Drink it as an aperitif or of course with fish or white meat.
£21.50

8. DOMAINE COLOMBETTE CHARDONNAY
For a while now, it’s been ABC (‘anything but Chardonnay’) but that capricious grape is making a popular comeback these days and it’s largely thanks to beautifully made, lip-smackingly fresh wines like this. Pale gold in colour with aromas of white fleshed fruit and fresh butter. A smooth, yet crisp wine with a long finish. Welcome back, old friend.
£22.50

9. PICPOUL DE PINET. DOMAINE DES LAURIERS. M.CABROL. 2018
Picpoul de Pinet has been called the new Muscadet and from relative obscurity, it is becoming increasingly popular. Picpoul is a very localised white grape grown just inland of the Mediterranean, south of Montpellier. Monsieur Cabrol makes an atypical, rich and rounded wine that still has the lemony balance required to go especially well with fish and seafood. A sparkling version is also available (see No.31).
£23.75

10. DOMAINE COLOMBETTE CHARDONNAY 2018
"How much,” we hear you say, “for a Languedoc wine we've never heard of!?” Well you see, this is the ‘Rolls Royce’ wine from Domaine la Colombette, where the Pugibet family have been making superb Chardonnay for forty-odd years. It is carefully made from selected older vines and aged, at eye-watering cost in oversized (Demi Muid) oak barrels and captures that elusive southern Burgundy style. This is Montrachet at half the price! You won't be disappointed.
£29.75

Rose

11. DOMAINE LA COLOMBETTE ROSE. 2017
This is absolutely lovely and is what drinking in the summer is all about (whatever time of year it is). A dry Grenache, this is light and fresh on the palate.
£19.75

12. DOMAINE LA COLOMBETTE ROSE, PINOT NOIR. 2017
If you like rose wines, you must try this new offering from our innovative friends at Domaine la Colombette. Here they have taken early picked fruit from their cosseted Pinot Noir vines and come up with this seductive winner. In a region famed for its rose wines, it is outstanding and you will be seriously impressed!
£26.00

13. SANCERRE, ANDRÉ DEZAT ET FILS. 2017
This beautiful, light, elegant rose is made from 100% Pinot Noir and will have you aching for another long summer. Absolutely top class.
£35.00

BORDEAUX ROUGE

14. CHÂTEAU RECOUGNE. BORDEAUX SUPÉRIEUR 2017
Made predominantly from Merlot, but intensified by a pair of Caber-nets (Franc and Sauvignon), this Claret - a big favourite of Robert Parker - is a well-rounded, smoky, savoury wine, ideal for enjoying with something like Boeuf Bourguignon.
£25.75

15. CHÂTEAU SIMON. GRAVES. 2017
Rich, beautifully balanced blend of Cabernet and Merlot, simply miles better than anything you would find in the Medoc and outstanding value.
£29.75

16. JEAN SABY ET FILS. ST.GEORGES-ST.EMILION 2019
Our association with this property goes back to the late-eighties. Jean Claude Saby consistently made good, solid wine at a fair price. He has now moved aside to allow his two sons, both talented oenologists to take over, bringing further expertise and enthusiasm to the task. This and a considerable investment in cellarage and equipment have brought about a noticeable improvement in what were already fine wines. This is an outstanding example from one of the most prestigious of the St. Emilion satellites…
£39.75

17. CHÂTEAU ROZIER. ST. EMILION GRAND CRU. 2016.
…or if you’re a ‘Nothing But The Best’ kind of person, there is this, the Saby family’s pride and joy and one of the finest Clarets we have ever tasted.
£50.00

BORDEAUX BLANC

18. CHÂTEAU SIMON. GRAVES. BORDEAUX SUPÈRIEUR.
An absolute classic, returned to us after far too long! Bone dry Sauvignon with a little Semillon, aged in old oak. White Bordeaux doesn’t come much better than this.
£29.50

LOIRE Rouge

19. DOMAINE LA NOBLAIE. CHINON 2014

Although the Loire is best known for white wines, there is one glorious exception between Saumur and Tours where red wines of great character and quality are produced. These are uniquely made from 100% Cabernet Franc and have a peppery style of their own. This oak-aged bio-wine, is lovingly made by a dedicated young team, building on mcenturies of expertise on a beautifully situated estate.
£31.75

LOIRE BLANC

20. MUSCADET SUR LIE. DOMAINE DE LA CHAUVINIÈRE 2018.
This is the best Muscadet that we have tasted in years – nothing to do with the battery acid that stopped people taking Muscadet seriously a while back. This is as bone-dry as you would expect but with plenty of fresh clean fruit. Probably the ultimate wine to accompany shellfish.
£24.75

21. POUILLY FUMÉ. DOMAINE DES FINES CAILLOTTES 2017
Beautiful, 100% Sauvignon Blanc. Dry and fruity with the classic, slightly smoky finish, this has been winning medals left right and centre.
£35.00

22. SANCERRE. ANDRE DEZAT ET FILS. 2017
This is beautifully made by one of the finest growers in the area, with all of those gooseberry flavours with which one associates top-class Sauvignon Blanc.
£35.00



BURGUNDY BLANC

23. MONTAGNY “LES MILLIERES”. CUVÉE SPECIALE BUXY. PREMIER CRU 2018
If ever a wine punched above its weight it is this. Made from old Chardonnay vines by the small co-operative at Buxy, it has really good structure with a crisp, lemony finish, both of which are unheard of in Burgundy at this price!
£33.75

24. CHABLIS. LES VALERY. JEAN DUROP ET FILS, 2018
Pure, classic ‘terroir’ wine that has a steely minerality without recourse to any oak use. Elegant with a crisp finish and a nose that calls to mind provincial boulangeries.
£35.00

BEAUJOLAIS ROUGE

25. BROUILLY. DOMAINE LES ROCHES BLEUS. 2018
We discovered this by chance last Christmas and there was a table-wide consensus that we’d found something a bit special. Les Roche Bleues is crafted from old vine Gamay planted near the summit of the extinct volcano, Mount Brouilly. Suitably, there is an eruption of sweet brambly raspberry fruit with a dry mid-palate, delightful mineral core, yet brimming with soulful purity. A treat for fans of the lighter wine that still packs in mouthfuls of flavour.
£29.75

ALSACE

26. GEWURTZTRAMINER. 2017. CAVE DE TURCKHEIM
This is a returning old friend that hasn’t been on our list for about six years. It was one of the first wines to ‘go screw-cap’ which at the time, we couldn’t bring ourselves to countenance. However, it’s become all the rage now, alas, and it’s nice to have this Alsacienne classic back with us. Spicy and floral with a lychee aroma this has a soft yet dry palate.
£25.75

Italy

27. ALMANTI DE VINO. PINOT GRIGIO 2016
From the Adriatic coastal vineyards of Abruzzo, this unoaked Pinot Grigio is a crisp and refreshing example of an increasingly popular grape variety.
£21.00

North wales

28. GWINLLAN. SOLARIS, 2019
Ten years ago, the only wine connection to Llandudno Junction was the Victoria Wine shop opposite the train station. That’s all changed thanks to to the mighty efforts of Colin & Charlotte Bennett, whose vineyard down Pabo Lane has yielded wines that have been impressing wine judges up and down the country and amassing a packed trophy cabinet for their efforts. This, their signature white is light and peachy with refreshing lemon and lime acidity and an elderflower finish.
£32.00

DESSERT WINE

29. CHÂTEAU LE FAGÉ. MONBAZILLAC. 2017
Monbazillac is a rather beautiful spot just south of Bergerac. Full of honey, sweet fig and apricot notes, a bottle of this is a fine way to end a meal in regal style.
17.50 (half-bottle)
£6.50 (50ml glass)

30. MUSCAT DE BEAUMES-DE-VENISE, DOMAINE DES BERNARDINS 2015
Intensely perfumed sweet wine with aromas and flavours of apricots, peaches, honey and raisins. It may seem a little steep, but this is how royalty finish their meals, and why should they have all the fun?
£23.75 (half-bottle)

31. CHÂTEAU SIMON. SAUTERNES. SAUTERNES. 2015
When all is said and done, if you want great dessert wine it has to be Sauternes and this is a stunning example. All the honeyed essences yet with a clean, dry finish. This is how royalty finish off their supper. Peerless.
£25.00 (half-bottle)

SPARKLING WINES

31b. PIQUEPOUL FRISANT. CÔTE MAS.
Picpoul de Pinet has become everybody’s favourite new kid on the block of late (see number 9 on the list) and now here comes the sparking version to dazzle you all. Like Prosecco, this is a floral, fruity affair but laced with the citric undercurrents and salinity that is unmistakably Picpoulian (not a real word…yet)
£25.00

32. AMORI. PROSECCO
Prosecco has become increasingly popular and this is one of the finest examples. A fresh and gently fruity sparkling wine; delicate and lively on the palate with citrus and green apple aromas, and a clean, refreshing finish.
£25.00
(Glass: £7.50)

33. CHAMPAGNE. CANARD DUCHENE. NON VINTAGE
Aged for four years, this excellent non vintage Champagne is an expert blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This is clean, accessible and stylish. Lots of orchard fruit but with a fine mousse and a touch of yeast.
£45.00
or Ayala Champagne (Half Bottle) £27.50

BIN ENDS

We’re coming to the end of the line with these two excellent wines and only have a few bottles left. Enjoy the scarcity!

ROUGE - CHÂTEAU PINERAIE. CAHORS 2016
This award-winning Cahors has a lovely warm nose of ginger and dried fruit, with a good concentration of cherry richness, spicy oak and bittersweet chocolate. A fine, luxurious sup, if ever there was one.
£30.00

BLANC - DOMAINE RIVES-BLANQUES CHARDONNAY/CHENIN. 2017
The grapes for this fine, crisp and dry wine (85% Chardonnay, 15% Chenin Blanc) are grown high in the cold, mountainous region of Limoux near the Pyrenees, famous for its superb sparkling wine, Blanquette de Limoux.
£23.50
