Fine Wine Theft … A Lucrative Bit of Bootlegging

Apparently, the value of the first-rate wines stolen from a renowned restaurant near the Arc de Triomphe was between 400,000 and 600,000 euros. And it was through a hole measuring just 50 cm that the crook slipped into one of the most prestigious cellars in all Paris. We just have to hope that the thief knows how to appreciate a good vintage or that he has an appropriate concealed cellar to receive the grandest of grands crus.
