1. If it is not Champagne then it is called Cremant and when you see it would be for example Cremant d'Alsace which would be a sparkling wine from the Alsace region of France and as a note these Cremants found everywhere in France usually are using a grape good for making Cremants within their region. Not necessarily the same grapes that go into making Champagne.
2. Cahors is the region I am thinking of when I talk of the Black Wine of Cahors.
3. Amontillado would be your medium dry sherry.
4. That dish I was talking of was called , Toad In the Hole.
5. To cut lettuce or any other leafy vegetable for that matter en chiffonade is to shred it.
Hope you had fun!
