The wine list at Jean Georges is heavily slanted towards Burgundy and very expensive. We considered a bottle of Vincent Dauvisat, Chablis, Les Clos, 1997, but our desire to drink a wine with significant bottle age led us to order a 1976 Taupenot-Merme, Chambolle-Musingy ($250). The bottle appeared to be in excellent condition and the cork was firm. As expected, the wine was light ruby with a brick colored rim. The nose was mature, but mild. Leather and caramel flavors dominated the palate. 1976 was a very hot year and some sweet fruit was still noticeable. This wine was by no means profound, but it was a very nice, mature Burgundy. The entire meal was a great experience and I would not hesitate to return for a leisurely lunch.
