Pappas Bros. Steakhouse now has world’s most expensive wine, a $56,000 stunner


Last weekend, I joined some out-of-town friends for dinner at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, the place with crazy good dry-aged steaks and three full-time sommeliers. Headed by master sommelier Barb Werley, the wine team manages a 33,000 bottle wine cellar that holds a Wine Spectator Grand Award (the only other Texas restaurant to earn that award is Pappas Bros. Steakhouse in Houston, with a similarly curated wine collection).

So what’s exciting the Pappas Bros. somm staff this week, I asked? “Oh, just this $56,000 bottle of Chateau d’Yquem, one of the world’s most expensive wines,” Rick Turner, Pappas Bros. general manager answered, presenting a bottle from the 1847 vintage, brandishing its original label and cork. d’Yquem is the sole Premier Cru Superior wine of Bordeaux made from grapes grown in the Sauternes region of Graves.

They probably didn’t taste that at the TexSom International Wine Competition. And neither did I.
