Bar Bordeaux Restaurant Review

: A dimly lit room, low hanging crystal chandeliers, and wines from Bordeaux define this clandestine wine bar in The Carlton Hotel. This charming lounge, adjacent to the property’s onsite restaurant Millesime, attracts an eclectic clientele, many of which start the evening with Bordeaux flights. Choose from selections like Château Nicot, Entre Deux Mers 2012 and Château La Dame Blanche, Haut Medoc 2011 among the whites, and reds such as Le Petit Caillou, Saint Julien 2007 and Saint Estephe de Montrose NV. Pair these wines with small plates to share. Charcuterie come in selections of three or five and include a chunky country pâté, a silky duck liver pâté and fennel salami. Cheese plates also tempt, especially the Tomme de Savoie, Ossau Iraty, Fourme d'Ambert and Comté --- all work beautifully with the wines on offer. Other options, perhaps mussels cooked in Pernod butter and foie gras torchon with quince marmalade, whet the appetite for more pours to come. A 2008 Sauternes Carmes de Rieussec will finish the evening off nicely for those who prefer ending on a sweet note.
