Bottles of 1914 Pol Roger champagne are stacked neck down in the cellars of the Pol Roger Champagne House in Epernay, France, Thursday, Oct. 15, 2014. As Champagne goes, 1914 was a providential year when the sweetest of summers left the richest of grapes waiting for their pickers. As war goes though, the bombs and gunfire could be heard just beyond the hills and most able bodied men were off fighting in the horrors of World War I. (AP Photo/Virginia Mayo)EPERNAY, France (AP) — Deep in the labyrinthine cellars of the Pol Roger champagne house, rows of century-old bottles caked in mold bear testimony to perhaps the greatest, and surely the most heroic of vintages.

In this Saturday, Oct. 18, 2014, Sheik Khalil Ibrahim Haidan, a local tribal elder, speaks during an interview with The Associated Press in Baghdad's Abu Ghraib suburb, Iraq. The city of Abu Ghraib will never fall to the Islamic State group, Haidan said at his family farm. After the revelation of prisoner abuse at the hands of U.S. troops following the 2003 invasion, Abu Ghraib became the scene of brutal insurgent attacks. Al-Qaida in Iraq, which eventually would morph into the group now known as Islamic State, targeted tribal leaders opposed to its ideology throughout Iraq’s Sunni heartland in the years that followed. (AP Photo/Karim Kadim)ABU GHRAIB, Iraq (AP) — The Baghdad suburb of Abu Ghraib, best known for its infamous prison, sits close enough to Baghdad's airport that you can see the control tower in the distance. It's an enticing potential prize for Islamic State militants.
