Many were convinced that some of the UK-produced fizz was from their own country, and in most cases they preferred it to champagne.
A team from Britain’s Wine and Spirit Trade Association travelled across the Channel and invited some of the biggest names in the Gallic restaurant and bar trade to a blind tasting.English Sparkling Wine toasted a spectacular victory over the French version – as an elite group of Parisian experts said it was better than champagne.
