Champagne: Thinking of Champagne brings about feelings of good living, elegance and the best that life has to offer. To cut the story short, Champagne is iconic, it is a sparkling wine made of one or more of three grapes: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier.
Varying ratios create unique flavors with Veuve Clicquot favoring Pinot Noir, whereas Dom Perignon is made primarily from Chardonnay. Did you know that Champagne is always sparkling wine but sparkling wine isn’t always Champagne. Only sparkling wines made from grapes grown in the Champagne region of northeastern France that adhere to rules requiring secondary fermentation in the bottle can be labeled ‘Champagne.’
