Wine sent from France as a gift

Forgive me if this has been asked ad nauseam. (or would it more appropriately be ad inebrium?)

I did a favor for friends who live in France. They know that I adore Suze (the apéro) and want to send me a bottle. I live in New Hampshire and as far as I can tell it is not available anywhere in New England. The SAQ in Quebec used to buy one case and plit it among many stores throughout the province, but even that is not a regular practice. So the prospect of this gift is wonderful.

I told them I thought it was illegal to ship wine to me through the U.S. P.S.

Is this so? Is some some other way they can do this -- UPS? Or is it simply impossible?

Thanks for any experiences or insights.
