Posted: March 23, 2015  By James Molesworth

The Great Exchange

A strong dollar in the 1980s turned Bordeaux first-growths into steals for U.S. wine drinkers

Posted: February 20, 2015  By James Laube

There was a time when currency exchange rates created a bonanza for American wine drinkers. My first real exposure to the benefits of a strong dollar occurred in the mid-1980s, when the dollar bought the equivalent of 10 French francs. The fanciest of French wines became bargains for American wine drinkers.

Charlie's Labels

The terror attack in Paris also took the lives of three of France's most outrageous wine label designers

Posted: January 14, 2015  By Robert Camuto

This past week, the words "Je suis Charlie" ("I am Charlie") have traveled the world in sympathy with the victims of the deadly jihadist terrorist attack on the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. Among the slain were five of France's most celebrated cartoonists. Three of them were also among the country's most outrageous wine label designers.

"They were my friends," explains Bordeaux winemaker Gérard Descrambe, 65. For more than 40 years, Descrambes commissioned Charlie Hebdo cartoonists and others to make eye-catching labels that varied from drunken to suggestive to sexually explicit humor.
