Is Stealing Wine the Right Choice for a Life of Crime?

Is Stealing Wine the Right Choice for a Life of Crime?

One of the fundamental principles of thievery (as it has been explained to me) is the value per pound of the item to be stolen. The greater this ratio, the more complex the thriving operation: heavy things are hard to move while lighter things are more easily spirited away. This explains why identity theft is so attractive. The object of the theft is without weight.

Grands Crus wine bottles broken by their thieves

Over the past two weeks, three wine cellars have been burgled and several more attempts have taken place in Burgundy. The first of them targeted the 3-star Michelin restaurant belonging to Georges Blanc in Vonas (Ain), then that of fellow restaurant the Lameloise in Chagny (Saône-et-Loire) and yet another one near Tournus. But the most unusual burglary occurred at a Relais & Château hotel which was the victim of major thefts on two successive nights. On the second occasion, the owner was woken by the alarm and he set off to catch the perpetrators.

NMR spectroscopy in wine authentication: An official control perspective

Abstract
Wine authentication is vital in identifying malpractice and fraud, and various physical and chemical analytical techniques have been employed for this purpose. Besides wet chemistry, these include chromatography, isotopic ratio mass spectrometry, optical spectroscopy, and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, which have been applied in recent years in combination with chemometric approaches. For many years, 2H NMR spectroscopy was the method of choice and achieved official recognition in the detection of sugar addition to grape products.

Is VeriVin The Holy Grail To Fight Wine Fraud?

Is VeriVin The Holy Grail To Fight Wine Fraud?

Rudy Kurniawan, Hardy Rodenstock, The White Club are only some of the most famous ones. Many more names have this thing in common: They bring to mind wine fraud. Fake wine. Ridiculously expensive bottles that are not what they pretend to be, that’s often what one thinks of when talking about wine fraud. A bottle of Yquem from 1784 found behind a brick wall in a Paris cellar. A rare Clos St. Denis from the exclusive Domaine Ponsot in Burgundy sold at auction in New York, but from a vintage when the domain didn’t make any wine. Romanée Conti from Domaine de la Romanée Conti, the world’s most expensive wine, in a bottle with a torn label, with curiously the same tear at more than one tasting.
