pop grape / wine words

the jerk’s guide to wine

We were telling my nephews how funny The Jerk is this weekend. It reminded me of one of my favorite grapefriendy scenes:  Once he gets rich from the Opti-Grab glasses, Steve Martin gets a bottle of Chateau Latour at a restaurant – it’s a Premier Cru Bordeaux, arguably one of the best wines in the world.

Waiter: “Would monsieur care for another bottle of Chateau Latour?”

Navin: “Ah yes, but no more 1966. Let’s splurge! Bring us some fresh wine! The freshest you’ve got – this year! No more of this old stuff.”

Waiter, appalled: “Oui, monsieur.”

Navin, to Marie: “He doesn’t realize he’s dealing with sophisticated people here.”
