Biggest Restaurant Wine Bill

Recommended Posts

Have you read this story about the biggest restaurant drinks bill in history (allegedly). It was run  up at Gordon Ramsays Petrus restaurant in St James in London. The party of 6 were drinking Chateau Petrus 45,46,and 47. I was talking to a local wine merchant who doubted that they would  even have enjoyed the bottles that much, at that age they would be very delicate specimens with very little fruit left. Apparently the 46 is an oddity from a bad vintage only of interest to real Petrus fanatics. Has anyone tried these wines or similar?
