Bordeaux's Right Bank appellation has been rankled by controversy and lawsuits over its classification system for years.

Maison M. Chapoutier announced that the 2013 Single-Vineyard Selections (Sélections Parcellaires) are officially offered for sale “en Primeur”.

Historians at Champagne Ruinart found papers recording that on March 14, 1764—250 years ago—Ruinart sold bottles of rosé Champagne. It was previously thought that Veuve Clicquot was the first to produce and sell rosé Champagne, in 1775.
