Rate this:
Top Gear's overgrown boy racer, scruff bag and beer drinker James May knows nothing about wine and loathes what he calls "wine ponces." Award winning wine writer and critic Oz Clarke, on the other hand, is one of the world's leading authorities on French wine. For 6 weeks, TV's oddest couple drive through some of France's most beautiful wine regions in James's Jaguar XJS - with much amusing verbal sparring along the way. Oz's mission is to educate and excite James about French wine. James's mission is not to get too drunk and by the end of the trip, be able to walk into a wine shop and buy something good for under $20.

Viewed this on a dark winter night, and thoroughly enjoyed this odd couple's foray into the unknown. I enjoyed it for its complexity of interactions - human, community, personal ideologies, and how we soften up and absorb things we never suspected would end up expanding our self image and our circle of friendships.

Too often sacrifices actual wine education for contrived, unfunny set pieces.
