"...Speaking of champagne, there was some serious talk -- in 1918, I think it was, the second centenary of the first use of the name to designate the sparkling wines of Hautvillers -- some talk, as I say, of seeking canonisation for Dom Pérignon, champagne's inventor. Nothing came of it, and yet men have been canonised for less."
"Very much less," said Hillier. "I would sooner seek intercession from Saint Pérignon than from Saint Paul."
--Anthony Burgess, Tremor of Intent (1966)
