    Robert Walters new book, Champagne A Secret History is absolutely fascinating It s part history of the famous Champagne region, part travel guide to gorgeous France, mon dieu and part tasting guide.But most of all, it shatters numerous myths of champagne about the people who make it, the people who market it and the drink itself.I lost count of the number of times I shouted NO GETTA OUTTA HERE SERIOUSLY while reading this book.Veuve Clicquot isn t just a brand name Veuve means widow in French and Barbe Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin better known as the Veuve Clicquot after her husband died invented remuage riddling , which helps the Champagne become clearer.Louis Pasteur s discoveries which led to the widespread pasteurisation of milk also ultimately led to the mastery of bottle fermentation and dosage addition, practices so integral to the Champagne tradition Mo t Chandon has been the largest producer in the Champagne region since 1762 a bottle of Mo t is opened somewhere in the world every two seconds of every day, of every year Walters is a Melbourne wine merchant, vineyard owner and writer with over twenty five years of experience in the wine trade He s also an excellent writer this book is a joy to read.
