Wine and Women

Over Easter, with friends from abroad we invented a new game over lunch: Match the wine to the woman (or man if you insist) one admires.

Play as follows: someone asks e.g. “Helen Mirren is a ….?” Players yell out their answers, e.g. Puligny Montrachet Grand Cru!” Winner by popular acclaim.

 Thus some of the list that emerged over lunch:

  • Kristin Scott-Thomas -- a dry Riesling
  • Judy Dench -- Amontillado sherry
  • Cate Blanchett -- vintage Champagne
  • Meryl Streep -- Chateau Latour

And so on.

Nominations for a great Pinot Noir included (drum roll here!)

  • Helena Bonham-Carter
  • Audrey Tautou
  • Emanuelle Beart

Try this at home. Send in your nominations.
