Chateau d'Yquem theft and flowers

Last week I was lucky enough to visit Chateau d'Yquem with some clients. This stunning Chateau in Sauternes has a remarkable heritage and history dating back over a thousand years. The beautiful wine has been served at Royal housheolds throughout the World for many centuries. This wine is the epitome of a luxury brand. It is now controlled by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy, who have an excellent track record for promoting, marketing and selling luxury.
When I visited the Chateau the gardens were in full bloom. The colours and smells were sensational. The bees were very happy.
Unfortunately on Sunday night there was a break in at the Chateau and 384 half bottles of the 2010 vintage were stolen....the approximate market value for these bottles is €100,000.
