Le Colonial Wine List Review

Le Colonial Wine List Review

We recently ducked into Le Colonial for dinner on a Saturday night, and the restaurant was jam packed. All in and all it was a great experience. We ordered a bottle of the 2007 E. Guigal, Gigondas ($60) and 2007 Perrin, Vacqueyras, Les Christins ($57). Both wines are rated over 90 points and they were excellent.

As with all VinoServant reviews, you will see the price at the restaurant followed by the mark-up over retail, and if applicable, a rating from one of the publications listed below (2006 Iron Horse, Classic Vintage Brut | $65 | 2.3x | WS 90). Mark up of 2.3x translates into a retail price of $28 a bottle, Wine Spectator rated this wine 90 points and it is one of our Top Picks at Le Colonial.
