I have a question about sparkling wine. I’m very embarrassed because I’ve been in France for 10 years now and I don’t really know very much about wine because I don’t drink alcohol. I know, I know, I sometimes wonder what I’m doing here as well!!
So, we are having a few people for dinner at Christmas time and we are going full-on British and having a roast turkey dinner followed by homemade Christmas pudding. It should be amusing as they are French!!
I want to get something bubbly but we can’t afford Champagne so I’m thinking of something from Limoux at about 5€. I’ve seen a Crémant and a Blanquette and I’ve no idea what the difference is or even if either would be good with turkey. Alternatively, am I being ridiculous and likely to be laughed at if I serve either of these with the turkey and should get something else.
All help would be much appreciated to avoid embarrassment.
