Best wine bars in Singapore

(Source: www.timeout.com)

Housed in a sleek, well-lit chamber in La Terre are 500 labels of predominantly Old World reds, whites and champagnes (from $18/glass, $74/bottle). The wine and whisky bar takes its spirits seriously, too, but take your time to appreciate the vino. Because the sommelier here certainly does.

Daisuke Kawai, formerly of Les Amis, tastes the majority of the bottles from select winemakers before they’re brought in. If you’re keen on a rare vintage, La Terre carries 50 bottles from the ’50s to ’90s, starting from $278 for a 1979 Jean León Cabernet Sauvignon Penedès Gran Reserva and peaking at a princely $11,112 for a 1948 Chateau Mouton Rothschild. Don’t hesitate to ask for recommendations: the somms here discern each customer’s palate depending on preferred fruit profiles and notes. And bottles are replenished twice a week, so you can be sure there’s always a good bubbly on hand.
