Champagne

Champagne is a sparkling wine produced from grapes grown in the Champagne region of France. The main grapes used in the production of Champagne are black Pinot noir and Pinot Meunier, but white Chardonnay grapes are also used. Although Champagne is often used as a generic term for any white sparkling wine, it is actually illegal in some countries to label wine as Champagne unless it both comes from the Champagne region and is produced under the specific rules that govern its production. Champagne’s sweetness, starting with dry and transitioning to sweet, is described as Extra Brut, Brut, Extra Dry, Sec, Demi-sec, or Doux, with Brut being the most common. It’s interesting to note that Champagne was much sweeter throughout the 19th century and into the early 20th century than it is today and was drunk as a dessert wine rather than as a table wine.
