    The wine list at Selfridges is dominated by the French section, which occupies around half the 31-page list.  But in two and a half years or so since she has taken over the buying at this famous London department store, whose frontage in Oxford Street is reckoned to have the highest shopping footfall anywhere in London (especially in the run-up to Christmas), former sommelier Dawn Davies has overhauled the...
