A column in The Washington Post recalled those days when Tony Blair was likened to a certain French breed in the lap of George Bush.

A crucial question no one thought to ask: what fine wines did you sip at the State Dinner? The White House merely noted that "American wines" would be served. The dearth of detail was deliberate. When officials revealed last year that a similar gala for the Chinese President Hu Jintao would feature a 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon (also American), that had been selling at $114 (£72) suddenly leapt to $399. Prices rises, whether for petrol or wine, are discouraged.
