David Beckham enjoys £5,000 wine tasting with new business partners

The retired footballer has a taste for fine wines

David Beckham and his business partners celebrated in style after meeting to finalise plans for the launch of their new Miami Major League Soccer team at the weekend. The retired footballer enjoyed an evening out with partners Marcelo Claure and Jorge Mas in Kansas City, where they sampled a number of wines up to the value of almost £5,000.

The father-of-four shared a photo of each of their tipples on Instagram Stories, starting with a glimpse of their 2010 Grands Échézeaux Domaine De La Romanee-Conti, which can sell for between £960 and £1,500 online. Tasting notes suggest that the wine is "totally weightless and beautiful" with flavours of crushed flowers, mint and sweet tobacco.

The trio then sampled 2004 La Tâche, a Pinot Noir red wine which is so rare prices range from £2,123 up to £3,000 a bottle. Last but not least, David shared a photo of a bottle of white wine - 2001 Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes - a Sauvignon Blanc which retails for a more modest £190.

David later shared a photo of himself standing alongside Marcelo and Jorge, adding the caption: "Great dinner with friends Jorge & Marcelo." Meanwhile, Marcelo shared the same photo on Twitter, writing: "First owner meeting. #Miami here we come. Are you ready for us? #MiamiMLS."
