The Wölffer Estate Premier Cru Merlot

Last weekend, my girlfriend and I visited the Wölffer Estate on Long Island, where she splurged on the Premier Cru Merlot, at $100/bottle. According to the winery, it is the first Long Island wine to retail above the century mark.

At $12–16, Wölffer charges a good deal more for tastings than any other Long Island winery we’ve visited. They have some remarkable wines, but given the prices, I thought they ought to comp the tasting if you buy a few bottles (as we did).

But I can’t complain too much, as the wines we sampled were indeed well beyond anything we’ve seen on Long Island. I bought a couple of bottles too, though nothing approaching that $100 Merlot.

Michelle’s report is here.
