If by any chance you thought it was easy to be a politician, I can tell you that it is not. Alain Juppé, mayor for many years in Bordeaux and also a presumptive presidential nominee in 2017, angered feelings in Champagne when he promised Bordeaux producers to serve Crémant de Bordeaux at official events. The Champagne houses were quick to protest and they wondered (somewhat childish I think) if they should cease to serve and drink Bordeaux in Champagne.
Everything turned out to be storm in a teacup (or maybe in a flute?) because apparently the mayor in Bordeaux already serves Crémant de Bordeaux at certain occasions and will continue to serve champagne at others. Nobody needs to get upset. Read more at sudouest.fr
