Les 5 du Vin: matching Mark Cavendish with a sparkling wine
A traditional but messy way of opening a bottle of sparkling wine
My posting this week on the Les 5 du Vin blog is about sprinter Mark Cavendish and matching him with a suitable wine, especially following Sunday's explosive charge up the Champs de l'Elysée. Clearly it has to be a sparkling wine and I've chosen an English sparkler that celebrates the man who may have invented sparkling wine – Christopher Merret.
