As Napoleon once said, "In victory, you deserve champagne. In defeat, you need it." That line aptly fits the story of one bottle of 1870 Lafite Rothschild and the demise of one of the most sought-after criminals in the world. You may be wondering what a $10,000 bottle of wine and Osama bin Laden have to do with each other, but they go together like vino and cheese.
