The wine menu at Pelham’s is extensive — oenophiles will be in heaven. Those who don’t want to commit to a full bottle can order by the glass. There are three types of champagnes available, including a Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé. From the reds section, be sure to try the 2006 Château Bel-Air La Royère from Bordeaux or, from the whites section, a nice, crisp 2008 Neudorf Riesling from New Zealand. If you prefer sweet wine, Pelham’s has a 2009 Michele Chiarlo, Moscato d’Asti Nivole DOCG from Italy or a 2008 Kracher Welschriesling from Austria (both available by the glass). For a rare bottle, peruse the vintage champagne section of the menu, where you’ll find a 1999 bottle of Duval-Leroy, Blanc de Chardonnay Millésimé. If money is no object and you’d like white to go along with your sublime sea bass, a bottle of 2005 Montrachet Grand Cru, Domaine de la Romanée Conti is available for RMB42,888 (US$6,800). However, not every vintage wine at Pelham’s is priced sky-high, as evidenced by a 2002 bottle of Zind-Humbrecht, Gewürztraminer Wintzenheim from Alcace, which will run you RMB628 (US$100).
