The two Benedictine monks Oudart and Pérignon worked together to perfect the champagne production process. Actually, both should be laurels of success, although only the second went down in history. In principle, the 16 year younger Oudart had the same function in connection with winemaking. He lived 27 years longer than Dom Pérignon. The great success of the sparkling wine, the champagne from. The thankless Jean Oudart contributed important things to this development.
