"Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right" - Mark Twain

The Most Famous Sparkling Wine Region in World

  • Champagne:  A region, a sparkling wine.  Located approximately 150 km North-East of Paris, Champagne is centered around the City of Reims.  The name "Champagne" is protected and recognized in most countries around the world; it desginates sparkling wine from the Champagne region of France.
  • Champagne is typically an assembly of several vintages to ensure consistency of profile from year to year.  These champagnes are designated non-vintage (NV) on the labels.
  • However, vintage champagnes, easily recognized by the vintage on the label, are produced in exceptional years, when growing conditions are ideal. 
  • Comments on some of the vintages in the last 20 years are presented below.

Notes.

  • 1. Traditional Method

    Traditional Method sparkling wines, previously "Champagne Method", are the result of a secondary fermentation in the bottle.   Other such wines include French Crémant, Spanish Cava, and Italian Franciacorta.

  • 2. 3 Key Grapes and Two are Red!

    Champagne is typically a blend of 3 key grapes varieties, white Chardonnay and black Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier with the remaining approved varieties representing less than 0.3% of plantings.

  • 3. Blanc de Blancs

    Blanc de Blancs ("White from Whites") refers to Champagne made from the white grape Chardonnay.

  • 4. Blanc de Noirs

    Blanc de Noirs ("White from Blacks") refers to Champagne made from the red grapes Pinot Noir and/or Pinot Meunier.

  • 5. How Sweet it is...

    The final sugar concentration can be adjusted by adding "Dosage Liqueur" (a sugar-wine mix)  to the Champagne just before final corking, resulting in the concentration of residual sugar. The range of styles, from Extra Brut to Brut to Demi-Sec to Doux is determined by the amount of the dosage. Brut Nature means no dosage and under 3g/L of sugar.

  • 6. How Rare is Rosé Champagne?

    Rosé Champagne is the only AOC which allows for blending of white and red wines to create rosé.  A rarety, rosé only represents 10% of the total yearly Champagne production.
