Gevrey-Chambertin chateau and vines sold to Chinese tycoon

From London Independent. A Chines casino zillionaire has bought a very prestigious Burgundy chateau. According to Wikipedia, Gevrey-Chambertin produces 8 of 33 grand cru wines in the region.

My first thought upon reading the headline was whether we would have to start testing French wine for melamine – the deadly non-food additive that was showing up in milk in China and in other products sent for export. That would be really nasty.

Sounds as though the French need to keep a better eye on their national treasures!

Stock up now before anything changes.
