Part of the initiative mentioned recently from Le French Books http://www.lefrenchbook.com/our-books/crime-fiction/the-winemaker-detective-series/treachery-in-bordeaux/(link is external) I found this one just a little tempting - living as we do in the Victorian Pyrenees. Love the wine chat in this :)

From the Blurb:

In modern-day Bordeaux, there are few wine estates still within the city limits. The prestigious grand cru Moniales Haut-Brion is one of them. When some barrels turn, world-renowned winemaker turned gentleman detective Benjamin Cooker starts asking questions. Is it negligence or sabotage? Who would want to target this esteemed vintner? Cooker and his assistant Virgile Lanssien search the city and the vineyards for answers, giving readers and inside view of this famous wine region. Treachery in Bordeaux is the first of the 20-book Winemaker Detective series that delves into the underworld of a global luxury industry. The world of wine is no more respectable than the world of finance. There’s money, deceit, death, crime, inheritance, jealousy—all the ingredients needed to distill a fine detective series!
