Police say that two harvesting machines were used to strip the vines of their ripened fruit, and have speculated that the grapes were stolen to order. “These are some of the best grapes in France, and we fear a wine mafia gang has stolen them,” said a detective.

Winegrower Roland Cavaille said he faces financial ruin.

Rumours that the grapes will resurface in The Sopranos wine range have neither been confirmed or denied.
