Champagne and Sparkling

Champagne

Nothing can beat a bottle of Champagne for a special occasion. Probably the most famous wine style in the world, Champagne is a sparkling wine from the Champagne region in Northern France. It’s made using Méthode Champenoise: a finished still wine is refermented in bottle with the addition of more yeast and sugar. Champagne flavours can range from fresh citrusy and floral, to rich and nutty flavours of pastries and butter, but all of them have that touch of class and elegance.

Sparkling Wine

Champagne does not have a monopoly on great fizz – sparkling wine is made across many wine producing regions. Some sparkling wines are made using similar methods to Champagne (e.g. Cava), and others use other methods like Méthode Ancestrale (where the wine is bottled before fermentation has finished, and the CO2 created in the fermentation process is trapped in the bottle, making it sparkle). A broad range of grapes and wine making methods used has resulted in a vast range of different styles and flavours – there is something to suit everyone!
