French customs is being accused of helping itself to more than 200,000 bottles of wine seized during a fraud investigation.

Decanter.com
"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.
