I’ve drank wine out of all shapes and sizes of bottles. I have drunk wine out of ceramic pitchers and glass pitchers,out of large glasses and out of small glasses. On one occasion, which I would prefer not to remember, I have even drank wine out of jam jars. However in all my life I have never been served wine in an upmarket restaurant or even in a downmarket one come to that, in a – teapot. But here is the photo to prove it. It was taken in Le Grand Bleu, Saumur’s foremost fish restaurant on the evening of the Fête National, (Bastille Day). Whether they had exhausted their normal supply or whether this was normal, I have no idea but I certainly puts a different slant on “afternoon tea”.
