Viewed from this perspective, I agree that downgrading someone used with whisky ~ 40+ degrees to wine ~ 12 degrees may be a shock.

Same applies on this other side of the Channel, when you try to get a Cognac, Armagnac or other high degrees beveurage drinker to try lighter substances.

Ok, sorry for this digression (... actually is it one, in this wedding topic context?).

Cheers,

JD

Resemblance - you mean you've always got a glass in each hand?

Dont forget Calvados, my father had a lasting memory of being plied with Calvados and strong cider fruit based drink during the great North West Europe Tour of 44-45.
Possibly viewed from this angle too - I cant get the bottles to stand up.

Yes, Calvados too!

In 1980, I spent my first summer job working for a cousin, farmer in Calvados (his farm is in Colleville, visible on a D-Day very known scene with #4 Commandos passing by). Needless to say that I have made my school with Cider & Calvados, at this time!

Cheers!
