Wine for presidents?

>> Tuesday, January 23, 2007

In April the French people will elect a new president. The two front runners for the race are Nicolas Sarkozy (conservative) and Segolène Royale (socialist). This has led to an unexpected hausse for the sales of a wine produced by the Saint Emilion cooperative (L’Union de Producteurs de Saint Emilion). The brand was created already in 1933 but has become particularly popular with the socialist supporters (one assumes): it is called Royale Saint Emilion and is available in a gift box. May we add that the wine is red.
