Whether you’re conquering lands, taming dragons or eagerly awaiting the Game of Thrones season premiere, there ought to be some sort of wine for the journey.
These four wines speak with character, whether it’s from historical background, grape composition or unique production. Powerful wines are the common thread.
When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. But when you play the game of wines, you’ll definitely win with these four. Just don’t get drunk with power.
2006 Chateau Loupiac-Gaudiet ($21.99)
It’s no surprise that such sweet and coveted liquid gold, gleaming like Lannister locks, stems from the home of some of the most expensive dessert wines in the world.
Much like the golden-haired family, these grapes may become affected with “noble rot,” which concentrates the sugars in the grapes and contributes unique aromas. The Lannisters may be as complex as some of these wines, but definitely not as sweet.
The royal reputation of these wines means that they can be pricey. Keep your eyes and spies on the lookout for Tyrion-sized bottles.
