How better to end the week than with a view of that "secret cellar" (Daily Telegraph) in its mayoral office setting? How about with a detailed breakdown of its contents complete with prices provided by a reader called Dafydd from Lewisham. He writes:
"Magnification, eyestrain, guesswork and a Google search has led to the identification of the three wines with visible labels:
Domaine du Vieux Calcernier, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, £14.83
Bourgogne Pinot Noir Cuvée Adélie, Albert Bichot , £9.58
Marquise, Vin de Pays du Jardin de la France, Noël Bougrier, £5.33
Prices are current prices at Laithwaites (though Marquise is an offer price). Vintage of County Hall bottles unknown but more or less irrelevant,and identifications have been verified by comparing images."
All gleaned from the image I posted earlier and all, way, way, beyond the call of duty. Dafydd, next time I'm south of the river I'd consider it a privilege to buy you a drink.
