	I'm sure that when cork first came into use, corks were referred to 
as "cork stoppers".  But I agree with Pug.  If as Badger indicates, the 
reference is Sir Hugh Platt's A_Delight_For_Ladies (1609), then it is 
pre-Perignon and therefore prior to any widespread knowledge of the 
wonderful properties of cork bark.
