La Tour Eiffle, and one heck of a dinner

In Vegas for 6 magnificent nights last week, and we decided to make our last dinner of the trip, our “date night”, particularly special. It turned into the most expensive dinner we have ever had, which was pretty much 100% because of the wine.

We started at the bar, while we waited for our table, with a couple glasses of this little gem.

Moet & Chandon 2006 Dom Perignon

For appetizers, my wife chose a salad while I had lobster bisque. To accompany those, we bought a half-bottle of this. The Eiffel Tower has the most incredible selection of half-bottles that I have ever seen.

Miner Family Vineyards 2016 Viognier

Now, for the main event, and pairing with a couple of Filet Mignons (both so big we could not possibly eat them all), how about a 33-year old Bordeaux??

Chateau Haut-Bailly 1986 Pessac-Léognan

We finished off the meal with a sublime chocolate soufflé, and then rolled ourselves out the door back to our hotel. What a meal, and a perfect way to end a simply spectacular vacation. Cannot wait to go back.

Up next: Lots of random stuff we’ve been drinking to update you on. Stay tuned!
