The use of a champagne yeast for a sweet mead is problematic.
Champagne yeasts are specifically bred for their high alcohol
tolerance (some can tolerate amazing amounts of alcohol.)  A yeast 
designed for a dessert wine and therefore less alcohol tolerance may 
be better for those wishing a sweeter finished product.
