Let the Whining Begin

Cheese may go with wine, but it seems that cheese-eating surrender monkeys don't so much.

The Judgment of Paris, as it has become known, was re-enacted yesterday, 30 years to the day after the original, with two teams of tasters in London and the Napa Valley, California, thanks to Mr Spurrier's wit and ingenuity...

At the tasting of 10 red and 10 white wines, evenly split between French and American in both classes, the panel awarded the top place in both categories to Californian wine. A Chateau Montelena Chardonnay 1973 topped the white wines, beating famous French names such as Puligny-Montrachet.

Not that the French don't still produce excellent wine, but for what I am willing to spend, I find I get more for my money selecting a wine from the American West Coast, Australia, or Chile.

Granted, though, it might seem a bit more classy to announce to your guests that you'll be serving a Left Bank Baron Le Foofyfoo instead of, say, a Woop Woop or a Red Truck.
