A taste of Petrus & Vega Sicilia at Benoit - NYT | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

Benoit, Alain Ducasse's NYC restaurant, is serving up a stunning range of wines in tasting samples.

 

Is blowing a couple of thousand dollars on a bottle of Château Pétrus a bit out of your budget? Always wondered what Vega Sicilia tastes like? Now you can try a range of blockbuster wines in 1oz (~30ml) samples.

 

A range of wines are kept in a dispensing machine, allowing sommelier André Compeyre to offer a stunning range.
