No visit in the Reims area without mentioning Champagne.

Especially a lot of champagne is drunk in France and England.
Preferred flavors: french – fresh and english – stored.
The funny explanation.?
Maybe France and England were so often at war with each other,
that the english side in peacetime had to buy such large stocks.
So they also had the drink when the two countries were enemies,
thereby changing the english taste to the stored.?
