Champagne in Victory & Defeat!

Posted on October 05, 2015

Napoleon is often quoted as saying " In victory you deserve it, in defeat you need it"

Documents sold last month show the wine & champagne provisions for the defeated, French emperor during his exile on St.Helena - which allowed him one bottle of champagne a day for the duration! Excellent!

We hope the English Rugby Team are able to sip a bottle or two after next Saturday's game. Remember this famous quote boys :

 “I drink Champagne when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it -- unless I'm thirsty.”
