Restaurant Diner in Manchester, England!
Hawksmoor, a steakhouse in England had accidentally poured one of the expensive wines on their menu to the patron in the restaurant. What’s the wine name? What did the customer order for himself?
Here is the wine!
The customer in the restaurant ordered Chateau Pinchon Longueville which costs $331 and which looks similar to Chateau Le Pin. Unfortunately, the bartender grabbed the expensive one, mistaken by the similar labels and poured it to the customer!
How did the Restaurant owner react to the whole situation?
The restaurant owner wrote, “To the customer who accidentally got given a bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomerol 2001, which is £4500 on our menu, last night – hope you enjoyed your evening! To the member of staff who accidentally gave it away, chin up! One-off mistakes happen and we love you anyway”
Some facts about the bottle!
A wine collector named Manuel D’ercoli jots down the subtle experience of swallowing the wine. He writes, “Deep ruby red and full consistency. Shining nose both deep and soft between chamomile, fresh cut grass, elderberries, liquorice, gunpowder, sandalwood and marasca with balsamic hint and saffron. The taste is so powerful and balanced but surprises for the acidity and the persistence. Never taste a so spiced, soft, fresh and powerful merlot at the same time. Without doubts, one of the most beautiful wines that I ever tried.”
Did the customer pay for the wine?
It’s still unclear that if Steve H-S was the actual customer of the restaurant and also doubtful that if the customer paid for the expensive wine. But one thing we can be clear about is that the customer would have paid a hefty tip for the “rarities” sections on their wine list.

In October 2018 1945 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Romanee-Conti got sold for $558,000 which was 17X price then it’s the average price. “The new world record established in today’s sale is further proof that the demand for wine and spirits of exceptional quality is at an all-time high, and that global collectors are willing to go the extra mile to acquire the rarest bottles of any kind,” Jamie Ritchie, worldwide head of Sotheby’s Wine, said at the time.
