Sharing wine pairings at a fancy dinner - gauche?

Is it acceptable to share a wine pairing between a couple during a tasting menu dinner? For example, if you were lucky enough to get reservations at French Laundry (hypothetically for me unfortunately) and wanted to share a wine pairing with your meal, would you be snickered at behind your back or is it a common request?

I speak as someone who has virtually no experience at high end restaurants; if I were to try and consume multiple (however small) glasses of wine with dinner, I would probably wind up too intoxicated to enjoy the meal.
