The 2016 and 2015 vintages look set to present us bordeaux lovers with fascinating comparisons for years to come. The Association de Grands Crus Classés de St-Émilion wisely chose to make this the theme of a dizzying tasting in London – dizzying because it was held on the 42nd floor of the Leadenhall Building, one of the tallest in London's financial district, what we Brits call ‘the City’. There was a fine view of the Trump helicopter cavalcade as the tasting coincided with his visit.
