"And another of the Restoration dramatists, Farquhar, has a tavern servant in his Love in a Battle (1697) point to the champagne he has brought and say, 'Here, here, Master, how it puns and quibbles in the glass!' Any wine writer of today would be proud to have made of petillance a pun and of every bubble a quibble."
