French customs is being accused of helping itself to more than 200,000 bottles of wine seized during a fraud investigation.
"Customs officials confiscated 'a large amount' of wine from the cellars of Bordeaux cru bourgeois Chateau Tour Seran in 1999 as part of an inquiry into fraud, mis-labelling and embezzlement. But when documents concerning the confiscated wine were presented to the local court recently, lawyers for the defendant - the chateau's previous owner - found a discrepancy. The equivalent of 215,237 bottles, worth around e800,000 (£548,417), was missing.
