When you’re looking to celebrate with a special bottle of wine, 1808 Grille has quite a few options, as its wine list is rather extensive. Special occasions call for a little bubbly and what’s better than a bottle of 2004 Louis Roederer Cristal Brut? But perhaps you want to savor the wine with your meal, in which case you’ll want to peruse the selection of reds. The 2005 Camus Latricieres Grand Cru from Chambetin, France will get the job done in the pinot noir section. As for merlot, opt for a bottle of 2009 Amuse Bouche by Heidi Barrett from Napa, California.
Of course, there’s not much that will go down smoother than a bottle of 1999 Château Haut-Brion from Pessac-Léognan, France for a cool $1,500 per bottle. Another Heidi Barrett wine makes the list at $625 a bottle, the 2008 Au Sommet. Another bottle from the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant's collection that stands out is the vertical of Axios Cabernet from Napa Valley (2005, 2006, 2007); but if you’re treating a large group to dinner, consider the 2008 Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, France — it’s a six-liter bottle for $1,090.
