Le Champagne Connu Partout

Hello!

I tried a different way of writing the final sentence, and it wasn't accepted by the exercise engine:

"que l'on peut aujourd'hui savourer le champage aux fines bulles qui se connaît dans le monde entier."

I tried this because the English text specified "[that is]" and I thought it was prompting use of "qui" -- is this grammatically in correct?

Hi James,

No, as Maarten says you cannot use the reflexive here.

you could say 

le champagne ... ( qui est) connu dans le monde entier 

le champagne ... que l'on connaît dans le monde entier

‘Qui est connu’ presumably was, or would be, accepted ? As for using the reflexive “se connaitre” here, it doesn’t seem to fit unless there is an idiomatic use of it that I am unaware of.
