Louie is now getting lowered into the hole with a different guide. Obviously, with the airshaft being so narrow and there being only one of them, it limits this activity to one team at a time. It effectively creates, no pun intended, a bottleneck. Down below, Jordan's search continues, as he sticks his head under and inside the racks. "It's much harder down here than you would think," he says. Oh, don't worry, Jordan, I think it would be hard.
Jet and Cord have reached the town, and now all they need to do is get directions. Unfortunately, they're in the wrong city, which is what the first person they ask tells them. "We went to the wrong town," both of them interview. "It was a problem," Jet admits. Back into their car, with a very concerned "Oh, my gravy." "It wouldn't be hard for us to be last right now," Jet says. You'd think so, wouldn't you? "Navigation was not our thing today," Jet interviews after the highly suspenseful ad break, and in the car, Cord says, "We just lost about another sixty kilometers." Fortunately, when you translate that to miles, it's probably less than the drive from their home to the nearest movie theater.
Jordan finally finds the bottle he's looking for, and finds the stairs back up to ground level. Good thing he doesn't have to "rappel" back up, because Louie has just emerged from the bottom of the shaft, and it would have been pretty crowded for them to pass each other in there. Jordan reaches the surface, and he and Dan go to the exit, where a winery employee shows Jordan how to slice the cork off. It's pretty straightforward; holding the bottle nearly horizontal with the cork pointing away from yourself (and, one hopes, anyone else), you slash the saber's blade up along the neck of the bottle towards the cork. Do it hard enough, and the blade takes off not only the cork and the wire, but the whole collar of the bottle. Which is how Jordan does it. The clue that shoots out is inside a little clear plastic tube, and has to be removed and unrolled so they can read "Taittinger La Marquetterie." And that's all it says. I'm liking how the clues this week are actual clues and not little printed letters saying "go here." Phil says they'll now need to figure out (and actual "figuring out" will happen, unlike so many other occasions when this phrase is used) that this is a chateau in the nearby village of Pierry, and it's where they'll find their next clue. The bothers are on their way. "There were millions of bottles down there," Jordan claims. Well, definitely thousands, at least, and maybe even tens of thousands. It's not like we ever get to see the whole cellar at once. Louie is now searching among them while Steve begins his descent.
