Move over Methuselah and Nebuchadnezzar—something much larger is arriving at Bazaar Meat by José Andrés in SLS. Beginning in the first week of April, four 27-liter wine bottles will join the restaurant’s wine program. Surpassing the size of other large-format bottles named after Biblical kings, the 27-liter is referred to as a primat, which comes from the Latin word for leader. Wine from these bottles will be poured for guests and displayed in the restaurant’s main dining room.

By-the-glass selections will include: Sandhi Santa Barbara County pinot noir (vintage and price TBD); 2011 Qupé Bien Nacido Vineyard Syrah from Santa Maria Valley ($18); 2011 Fable Mountain Vineyards “Night Sky” red blend (syrah/mourvèdre/grenache) from South Africa ($18); and 2012 Leviathan Red (cabernet sauvignon/cabernet franc/merlot/syrah) from Napa Valley ($21).

One size down from the Melchizedek, the largest bottle size ever made, these rare bottles (you won’t find them anywhere else in Las Vegas) are massive, each standing about 3 feet tall, weighing 125 pounds, holding the equivalent of 36 750-milliliter bottles when full. One primat can pour up to 216 glasses of wine. Long cherished for gracefully aging wine, these super-size bottles also double as striking dining room showpieces.
