Hi Alex,

Leeds has its first michelin starred restaurant for many years with the man 
behind the curtain however I've never been and no idea what the wine is like ( 
chef also looks like a freak)

For great French wine accompanied with good food Kendell's bistro by the 
playhouse is the best in Leeds. It's a great little restaurant and they have a 
really good selection of red and white wines and very decently priced. 
(http://www.kendellsbistro.co.uk/wine_7_1787011667.pdf). I would recommend this 
place.

In terms of restaurants, if you like Rioja ( I'm not that keen) 
http://www.ambiente-tapas.co.uk does great tapas dishes and lots of good 
Spanish wine - it's a different selection to your usual bog standard Rioja. 
They specialise in Sherry - obviously not my thing but the wife says the sherry 
flights are good.
 
Gaucho does great steaks accompanied by heavy reds (Argentinian Malbecs etc). 
They also do lots of different champagnes.

Fazenda is a Brazilian meat feast restaurant with another good South American 
wine list. Lots of good wines but not my taste.

Bibis is not my place but every time I've been the food is excellent and they 
always have a good wine selection.

Hopefully this gives you a few choices. Leeds is changing so fast these days I 
can't keep up. I used to pride myself on having been to every pub and bar in 
Leeds . I can't even name half of them these days so I'm sure there's a few 
offering decent wine these days. 

The beer has certainly improved. After Tetleys died ( although had a great pint 
of hand pulled in Scabby Taps last night) the beer went down hill, but now with 
all the independent breweries taking over there's so many great pubs serving 
top quality ales.... But you didn't ask for that did you!
