Restaurant Customer Returns 18,000 pound Bottle Of Wine After Claiming It Was Fake

A customer dining at the swanky Michelin-starred Zafferano in Knightsbridge, London sent back an 18,000 pound bottle of Petrus 1961, regarded as one of the finest wines ever made, after he claimed it was a fake.
Upon opening the wine the customer refused to touch it because the cork was not stamped with the standard mark of provenance proving where and when it was made.
The customer, still intent on spending a small fortune on a bottle, ordered a magnum of Mouton Rothschild 1945 at 20,000 pounds. STORY
