1952 Chateau Petrus Bordeaux

SOOKIE: That’s it, get their names, they’re never eating here again … Wait, what wine was he drinking?
WAITER: 1952 Chateau Petrus Bordeaux.
SOOKIE: Hm. Okay, never mind.

Chateau Petrus is a vineyard in Bordeaux, France, producing red wine entirely from Merlot grapes. It is widely regarded as the outstanding wine of Bordeaux, and ranks among the world’s most expensive wines. An average bottle would be around $2000, and although 1952 was not one of the greatest vintages for Petrus, it is still highly regarded, and a bottle may cost as much as $8000.

Realising how much the customers have paid for their wine changes Sookie’s mind about banning them from the Independence Inn.
