This week JANCIS ROBINSON MW gets involved in politics by hosting two wine tastings at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The reader gets a blow-by-blow account of the tastings. The first features a selection of 30- to 50-year-old clarets, which, in virtually all cases, had mellowed to the most charming, delicate, subtle wines'. The Ukranian Prime Minister was particularly taken with the 1962 Lafite.
The second tasting, of an eclectic collection of wine styles, included the best Indian red wine Robinson has tasted - the 2003 Grover La Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon - vinified with the consultancy skills of Michel Rolland.
