In January 2010, Aubert de Villaine, the famed proprietor of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, received an anonymous note threatening the destruction of his priceless vines by poison --- a crime that in the world of high-end wine is akin to murder --- unless he paid a one million euro ransom. Villaine believed it to be a sick joke, but that proved a fatal miscalculation and the crime shocked this fabled region of France. The sinister story that Vanity Fair journalist Maximillian Potter uncovered would lead to a sting operation by some of France's top detectives, the primary suspect's suicide, and a dramatic investigation.
