Sir: I was delighted to read , thanks to the efforts of LibDem MP Norman Baker, that the oldest wine in the Foreign Offices' wine cellar is a Chateau Latour 1955 and that the most expensive bottle bought since Labour came to power is a Chateau Latour Petrus 1995 (report, 5 December).

Whilst it is comforting to think of the latter being drunk and enjoyed in 10 to 15 years' time, the former needs drinking up.

Please forward my name and address accordingly.
