The $10,000 Cellar, Part Three

Topping off the cellar with Cabernet-based wines


« Prev Next » 13 of 17

And now the hard part. With three more wines left, I have to struggle to fit in anything and everything that I’ve missed. Obviously there are many options here, but I’m sticking with wines that are unique in their class. You can swap out many a Bordeaux or Barolo for the one’s I’ve recommended along the way, but you would be hard pressed to find anything that could replace these next three wines. They might in fact be the best recommendations of this whole exercise. Since you’ve read this all the way through, I think it’s only fair that I share them with you!

    Just trying a Tardieu Laurent 1997 Bandol at the moment, yes rustic, but those tannins are fine and dusty now. Should go with the lamb strips, capsicum , tomato, caramellised onion and bonconcini, or perhaps one of your right bank Bordeaux might fit the bill.
