John Radford – "fuck-me shoes" remark silences wine critics

Christelle's red shoes

Ebullient and larger than life John Radford, leading Spanish wine expert, silenced the celebratory lunch at Enoteca Turi in Putney to mark the end of the 2010 Decanter World Wine Awards. Speaking to a room packed full of famous wine writing names Radford's off the cuff remarks about event organiser Christelle Guibert's red shoes caused a collective gasp of surprise and an sharp intake of breath.
