    Kate tasted two proseccos to go with Michel and Mary’s afternoon tea madeleine and fruit tarts: a fully sparkling spumante and a frizzante which is less bubbly – any of these would work well:  

    • La Marca Prosecco di Conegliano Valdobbiadene Extra Dry NV Italy
    • Villa Sandi Prosecco Frizzante DOC NV 
    • La Jara Prosecco Frizzante Organic.

    Mary chose Kate’s suggestion of an English sparkling wine: 

    • Chapel Down Vintage Reserve Brut.  

    Other options for homegrown bubbly are: 

    • Gusbourne Estate, Brut Reserve 
    • Ridgeview Cuvée Merret Bloomsbury

    To go with Michel’s apple tart, Kate selected a Madeira, these would all work perfectly complement this classic French patisserie:

    • Blandys 5 year old Alvada 
    • Vinhos Barbeitos, Malvasia Reserva
    • Henriques & Henriques 10 Year old Malmsey
