The $10,000 Cellar, Part Three

Topping off the cellar with Cabernet-based wines


Next » 1 of 17
The $10,000 Cellar, Part Three Here we are at the final installment of the $10,000 cellar. As I’ve repeatedly mentioned, this installment, which focuses on Cabernet-based wines at around the $85 per bottle price range, is just a small part of what ends up yielding the buyer a very nice cellar of over 170 bottles of wine!

That breaks down to just about $55 per bottle. While this is not inconsequential to be sure, in the world of fine wine it is a very reasonable sum. Of course, you don’t have to buy any or all of these wines. You can cherry pick beginning with the $20 options I suggested in the first installments of this series, the $2,500 cellar!

This installment completes my basic suggested cellar. I do plan on following up with one final set of wines, those very rare wines that are arguably worth more than $100 a bottle! Until then, enjoy my final suggestions for the $10,000 cellar.

    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.
