BTG Bizarre?

I get the weekly e-mail from Bar Boulud in NY, a favorite of mine pre-covid. It’s been at least 10 years since they started a program I really enjoyed… daily special btg pours from mag or larger.

This week’s pours strike me as bizarre, not so much for the wines but for the pricing. Have a look and let me know what you think. I think $45 is a lot of money for a glass of Bordeaux Blanc and that $20 is not a lot of money for a glass of Grand Cru Chablis.

$45/glass

Tuesday 7/19 – Wednesday 7/20

Yes, that’s weird.

You don’t care for their stemware?

I’ve eaten there dozens of times, never saw that glass. If that’s the size of the pour for the Bordeaux Blanc, I might go for a $45 glass… if I was with a party of four or more.
