Some 12,000 bottles of Bordeaux wine with fake labels have been seized, some from the warehouses of direct-sales company AdMart. About 80 Customs officers raided two Customs godowns and eight AdMart warehouses and arrested 10 men aged between 29 and 55 on Saturday. They seized the wine in bottles labelled Mouton Cadet 1995, of which 658 were found at adMart. About 300 bottles of Mouton Cadet from a different year were also found at AdMart. The 1995 bottles were suspected to contain a cheap table wine imported from Europe. The $1 million discovery was made after the Mouton Cadet agency complained to the Customs and Excise Department, saying the falsely labelled wine had been found in Guangzhou, apparently imported through Hong Kong. Johnny Chow Wing-keung from the Customs Intellectual Property Investigation Bureau said the wine was mostly for re-export to the mainland, where drinkers might be fooled because they often drank red wine mixed with soft drinks. He said a limited quantity had been sold in Hong Kong. The real bottles have numbers in a corner to the left of the label. The fakes do not. Mr Chow said each bottle was destined to be sold for $79, while genuine Bordeaux cost about $110. A statement issued by AdMart, owned by media entrepreneur Jimmy Lai Chee-ying, said it had stopped selling the wine and was investigating. ParknShop, which is locked in a price war with AdMart, offered to exchange fake Mouton Cadet bought from AdMart for the real thing.
