When we heard Melvyn Bragg say on the radio yesterday that he didn't care for Champagne, Jules and I had a long debate about bubbly: would you prefer a glass of champagne to a nice glass of red? A cup of coffee? A pint of the dark stuff? And my answer is YES! I would prefer a glass of champagne to almost anything! It was one of those debates that won't go down in the history books, but entertaining nonetheless.
