Champagne is a sparkling wine produced from grapes grown in the Champagne region of France. Producers must follow strict rules that demand, among other things: secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to create carbonation; specific vineyard practices; sourcing of grapes exclusively from specific growers in the Champagne appellation; and specific pressing regimes unique to this fabulous region.
For more than two centuries, the wines of Champagne have been present at happy occasions all over the world! To me, Champagne is magic. It’s also a supremely feminine wine. I love everything about it: the seductive honey colour, the tiny bubbles, the scents and tastes. I love the mood Champagne creates, the feeling that no other wine can come close to: celebration, life, love and joy.
