I read this article today in the IHT, so I have to wonder about the Irish
Examiner copyright. Seems to be Reuters:

wines-proliferate.html?_r=0

Got a good laugh though: Mouton and Sons; Edouard Mouton...

Probably not very funny for the wineries loosing business, although its
hard to be very sympathetic given today's prices for 1st growths!
