I am going to a foie gras tasting dinner tonight, and I would prefer to buy a bottle of wine rather than the $95 wine pairing. I'd like a nice bottle under $100. Bordeaux comes to mind, but I'm not set on it. I'm looking at the wine list and I am overwhelmed, as I've only tasted a few of the wines on the list. We bother prefer French wines, but there are some American wines that we have enjoyed as well. The Grgich is one, and Duckthorn.
This is the wine list: http://www.lafolie.com/wine_list.pdf
In general, I get lost on larger wine lists, and feel ignorant when perusing them.
Looking at this list are there any wines that are truly outstanding that you've tried?
