Le Bernardin, New York

Over the years I have had many fabulous meals at Le Bernardin, but this was the first time I had the good fortune to settle in and enjoy one of the tasting menus at a more leisurely pace than I am used to.

2008 Cocci Grifoni Rosso Piceno Vigna Messieri ($22) 91

2008 Cocci Grifoni Rosso Piceno Vigna Messieri, 91 points

Cocci Grifoni's 2008 Vigna Messieri, a Montepulciano/ Sangiovese blend, hits the palate with a rush of dark red cherries, smoke, spices and dried flowers. Drink this sumptuous, extroverted red over the next 5-7 years.

Roederer 1979 Cristal

Roederer’s 1979 Cristal is easily one of the greatest Champagnes I have ever had the privilege of tasting and drinking. Several recent bottles have been magnificent.
