Drink to Forget

The French Foreign Legion is going into the wine business to raise funds for its veterans. Called Esprit de Corps, to embody the legionnaire spirit, its red and rose vintages are produced from grapes grown on a property in southern France used to shelter its war-wounded and former fighters, who work in the vineyard.

An officer at the property in Puyloubier described the wines as 'strong when attacked, solid on the onslaught, full of grapeshot on the front line.'
