If you appreciate rare bottles of wine, you’ll be well served by a meal at Twist by Pierre Gagnaire. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant offers excellent wine pairings to go with its three- and six-course menus at a reasonable cost, along with a grand pairing featuring more rare pours with the six-course menu. For standouts, look no further than the 1990 Domaine de la Romanée Conti, La Tache, for a cool $9,900. Or perhaps the 1937 Domaine de Lambrays, Clos de Lambrays for $7,500 suits you better. Of course, you’ll find an extensive selection of domestic, French and Italian wines, along with an off-the-beaten-path Swiss Chateau d’Auvernier Pinot Gris, a nod to the chef for $85. Take one look above the entranceway to catch a glimpse at the wine loft to get an idea of the sheer number of different bottles Twist by Pierre Gagnaire has to offer. And if you’re not a connoisseur, trust the knowledgeable sommelier to pair wines with your meal.
