My former colleague and, now, a friend Agniezska Nemiec I should like to thank for being so brave and selfless of running the risk of depriving herself of the greatest experience of her life, which happened to turn out to be one of my longterm ambitions and she knew how much it meant to me.
Mr. Bertrand Verduzier of Gosset for being so wonderfully patient with me and my questions when I was at Gosset.
Elodie (I have forgotten her surname) of Joseph Perrier for enabling me to understand another Champagne house a lot more.
Sonya (also forgotten her surname) of Bollinger for a wonderful trip through the cellars and managing to organise, at last minute, visit to Ayala
Philipponnat and Ayala, I have to put in one bucket - completely my fault - because I have forgotten the names of the ladies that did the tours for me. But what a blast! Thank you!
Mr. Dennis Bunner of Bollinger for his extensive knowledge to which I was lucky enough to tap for a very short period of time and have many of my uncertainties clarified.
Thank you all for contributing to what I now call 'my Champagne renaissance'.
