Rare Bordeaux Discovered at Florida Restaurant


25 - dec - 10

A 1947 vintage of Chateau Latour has been discovered at Bern’s Steakhouse, a restaurant in Florida that possesses the largest wine collection in the world with nearly 500,000 bottles.

According to AP, senior sommelier Eric Renaud chanced upon the gem bottle while searching the huge wine cellar at the restaurant. “I saw this bottle on its side, tucked the wrong way with a few bottles in front of it. So I moved the bottles out of the way, I rolled the bottle over and I looked at it and I thought, ‘Oh my God’,” said Renaud.

“I don’t think there’s anyone in this business who wouldn’t get excited about a wine like this,” he said.

The rare Bordeaux will be included on Bern’s new wine list when it’s released next month. The asking price is a whopping $30,000, a record price for the restaurant.

Renaud, however, calls it a fair price considering the bottle could probably be sold at a far greater price at auction. He believes the bottle was likely bought in the 1960s by the restaurant’s founder, Bern Laxer,

There is, however, a guarantee the wine will be in excellent condition.

“If the wine is bad, there’s no charge,” Renaud said.

I found out last night that when I drink wine, I recite all the opening taglines from the Real Housewives of New York.
