Champagne is a classic sparkling wine which has its origins in the Champagne region in France. This sparkling wine is revered due to its great taste, nice smell, and prestigious status. For many people around the world, popping open a bottle of champagne is a great way to celebrate.
Champagne is made with a combination of three grapes—Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier. Contrary to what most people think, there’s a difference between wine and champagne. They are not the same thing. Wine is made by simply fermenting grapes, while champagne is made by adding yeast and sugars to fermented wine, which then undergoes secondary fermentation before being bottled.
Champagne is expensive because the production process is very technical and labour-intensive but is a fantastic drink for many different occasions!
So what makes a good champagne? Well a few things to look for are size of bubbles, high-quality champagne should have smaller bubbles. It should also generally be light gold in colour and the flavour should be crisp and fruity.
