Is Liliane Bettencourt a customer of 1855?

1855's Paris offices

Liliane Bettencourt, the L'Oréal heiress and the mother-in-law of Jean-Pierre Meyers a leading shareholder in 1855, was the unfortunate victim of a break-in this week. Two thieves broke into her villa on the north Brittany coast at l'Arcouest, Ploubazlanec and stole 40 bottles of wine. Read the article from Le Télé here.

It is possible that 40 bottles was the maximum load the miscreants could carry but you also have to wonder whether Madame Bettencourt's cellar wasn't nearly empty because of ordering her wine through 1855 – delays in delivery due to logistical problems and promises from the customer relations people, Mathieu and Carole, that the outstanding wine would arrive by the end of this month.......!!
