What Wines to Order at Four Horsemen

What Wines to Order at Four Horsemen

It’s not news that Four Horsemen is the best restaurant in Williamsburg, and the best restaurant in Brooklyn to drink wine at no matter what your budget is. That said, figuring out what to drink at a place you know as a spot “With a really great wine list” is still tough. In fact, it can be overwhelming– Four Horseman’s wine list of both well and little-known producers spans 40 pages.

Four Horsemen Menu

Four Horsemen has a list full of some of the hardest to find natural wine producers. There are also top-shelf and collectible wines from producers such as Jacques Selosse, Clos Rougeard, Didier Dagueneau, Roulot, and Mugnier. No matter what your taste is, if it’s good, they got you. Thank you, Brooklyn.

Here are the 5 wines we’d drink if we were on a date with you at Four Horsemen. You down?

The Best Bottles to Order at Four Horsemen

Our favorite wine that’s not shy about being a natural wine:

There are some that have flavors that are exceptionally wild, and others that are more reserved. This thing is exceptional.

Gabrio Bini 2019 Serragghia Fanino catarratto, pignatello

Bini makes wines on the remote island called Pantelleria. This Mediterranean island is home to the best capers in the world, this orange wine, and not much else.

Shop our collection of orange wine.

The best wine if you don’t like natural wine but still want something interesting:

White Option: Keller 2020 ‘Limestone’ riesling

Red Option: Pierre Cotton 2019 Régnié gamay

The best Champagne to drink if you don’t recognize any of these names:

Vouette et Sorbée ‘Fidèle’ pinot noir

This is a totally normal tasting Champagne. No disrespect to normal wines– in this instance, it’s the glass of bubbles you want because it’s refreshing but kind of tastes like pancakes and apples too.

Shop our collection of Champagne.

The wine on the last that should be more expensive than it actually is:

Simon Bize 1997 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru ‘Les Serpentières’

There were some late releases of this wine direct from the winery. After the 100th pop in Burgundy prices over the last couple of years, this wine is now cheaper than you’d find it at auction or likely a retail shop.

Holy shit. This is the best priced Rayas in the country.

2004 Château de Fonsalette Côtes du Rhône Réserve syrah

2009 Château Rayas Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réservé grenache

2008 Château Rayas Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réservé grenache

Interested? Click here and we’ll find you some.

If you’re here for the food, you don’t normally find yourself in Brooklyn, and you like classic wines.

2002 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru ‘Les Saint Georges’

Gouges is a legendary Burgundy producer. The wines take forever to open up. 2002 Gouges is probably the youngest you’d want to drink. It’s ready but still powerful too.

Oh, and why is there an $1,100 bottle on this list?

They’re the only place in America we know who has this. It’s a natural Burgundy from a winemaker whose family was a part of DRC. It’s got a fanbase who makes Harry Styles’ seem dismissive of the chap.

Prieuré Roch 2006 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru ‘Vieilles Vignes’
