I’m a little late to the news here, but I just read that Rudy Kurniawan was recently arrested for wine fraud. I remember feeling astounded that this Chinese Indonesian guy still in his 20s could have amassed such a startling collection of wines. Now I know how. Pffft.
Vanity Fair covers the story here.
Interestingly enough, back in 2008, NYTimes had already reported on a whiff of something’s-not-right.
