Bargain Bourgogne Rouge

Pictured: approaching midnight, ’99 Bonnes Marres (Dominique Laurent) slurped from plastic cups in the company of Nick and Pauline Harman of London-Eating (and other reckless gourmets...)
The venue: a chippie in south-west London.
No corkage was levied, which is just as well considering that the iconic Grand Cru has an R.R.P. of around £170, meaning you would have petite change from £500 in a starry restaurant.
How did this happen?
Whilst the story is a gift, I have been sworn to silence!
