      More of a political story than a wine story.

      Socialist President Hollande had not been doing well, and then the bottom really fell out when his budget minister, a fellow known for ferreting out tax cheats, had to resign when found with a Swiss bank account he'd had for 20 years.

      Currently 24%/62% favorable/unfav

      To his credit he's fairly responsible fiscally, not trying to spend his way out of this hole, but instead seeking to enact measures that will help France's economy grow.
