It sounds more like he invented sparkling cider than Champagne. Dom Perignon employed the new, thicker glass that finally withstood the winter and spring re-fermentation in the bottle.

Very true. If only the British were growing grapes back in those cold dreary hillsides back in the 1600's they could lay some claim the issue.

"The French have played down Mr Crowden's claim, insisting that while the fermentation technique is 'interesting', the drink Merrett proposed would have borne little relationship to champagne."
