That's a Special Club bottle/label. Was the story about the Club de Tresors? The membership is exclusively RMs, and the have to submit both the vins clairs and the disgorged Champagne to a judging panel before it can be labeled as Special Club.
Yes.
Apparently, the Laguiole saber isn't all that: http://b4ttlesong.blogspot.com/2013/04/my-life-in-sabers.html (Bonus SF-y detail: the author of the above blog post now has a bespoke Champagne saber.)
Jancis says that Pinot Beurot is a Burgundian synonym for Pinot Gris. You were drinking Pinot Grigio.
Gasoline and diesel fuel are distinct distillates from crude oil. You can't decide that you'd rather have only diesel from this barrel of crude and only gasoline from that barrel of crude. You're going to get gasoline AND diesel from both barrels, and it's not possible to fiddle much with the relative yields. If you didn't have gasoline engines, what would you do with the gasoline, and what would happen to the price of diesel? (But why resort to explanations from basic...

King Arthur Flour runs and honest-to-God artisan bakery at their headquarters in Vermont, and they have a series of videos about the various steps in bread production recorded there and narrated by their bakery staff up on their website. I've found them very useful -- the shaping and scoring ones in particular taught me more about how to do it than lots of verbiage in lots of books. Speaking of books, my favorite bread book is Bread: A Baker's Book of Techniques and...

Anyways, it got really sticky and it was too late...
