Penrose Room’s nearly 30-page wine list focuses on Old World vintages and includes many rare bottles. First and foremost is a 1945 Château Latour for a cool $5,000, but other vintages from both Latour and other Bordeaux estates, including Mouton-Rothschild, are also on offer. There are a number of burgundies from Domaine de La Romanée-Conti, including the 2006, which will run you $4,500. The 1993 Dom Pérignon Onetheque is practically a steal at $500, though prestige cuvées from Perrier Jouët, Taittinger, Louis Roederer, Veuve Clicquot and Krug round out the champagnes. Be sure to ask the expert sommelier staff for more suggestions to pair with your meal; after all, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant serves classic French dishes, and wine plays such a crucial part in bringing out the best flavors in this type of cuisine.
On the 1,000 bottle wine list at Penrose Room, there are many special treats. A few to note are the 1945 Chateau Latour and 1993 Dom Perignon Onetheque.
