bottled a batch of partially fermented wine. the following spring most of the bottles
exploded. tasting a surviving bottle, he is said to have remarked, "i'm drinking stars!".
perignon was 60 years old in 1698 when he finally perfected the process of making
champagne-a balance of grapes, sugar, fermentation, sturdy bottles, and a method to
keep the corks from shooting out of the bottle prematurely
