From the invention of Champagne
Champagne is regarded as the wine of festivities par excellence since the eighteenth century. The Roederers, Heidsieck, Moet and others Ruinart had succeeded in seducing the court of Versailles with this fashionable drink.
Yet, it might not have existed. These white wines, taking foam, were very unstable and caused many worries to the merchants, who marketed them.
Champagne owes a great deal to Dom Pérignon, a simple monk from the Labbaye de Hautvillers, who develops and develops the Champagne method: fermentation, bottled foaming, corking surrounded by a muselet.
Dom Pérignon owes it to having mastered the natural ardor of Champagne!
