Stuff You Must Know About Champagne

By Holly Peters

Throughout history, champagne has been known to be a symbol of wealth and high class standards. Champagne drinking is popularly associated with different kinds of celebrations. Because of its popularity, many people have ventured into champagne production. There are those, though, that enter into the industry illegally and produce poorly made versions of the credible champagnes that well-established industries make.

The best way to identify a fake product is to know what the genuine one is like. Know the difference between fake and genuine champagne by reading through this page.

Champagne got its name from Champagne – a province in the northeast of France where the beverage was originally from. When champagne was first made, it became a popular drink among French royalty and elite families. Wine makers, intending to keep the royal and the elite interested in the new bubbly drink, did their best to maintain the quality of their products.

Some people use the term champagne to refer to all types of bubbly wine, but in the past, a wine could not be labeled true champagne unless it was approved by the Comit Interprofessionel du Vin de Champagne. This only shows how strict their guidelines were. In order to qualify as real champagne, they evaluated not only the process by which it was made, but also the taste and the amount of bubbles, among other things.

The traditional way of making champagne is called the Mthode Champenoise, wherein wine, after bottling, goes through a second fermentation process. A certain amount of yeast is added into the wine bottle in order to initiate the second process of fermentation. In order to make a certain brand unique, many companies choose to keep their recipes for champagne a secret. They would never divulge their ingredients and their proportions.

There are many brands of Champagne. The most popular ones include Blanc de noirs, Rose Champagne and Blanc de blancs. All brands have a unique recipe using different grape types in order to keep their brand distinct. Whatever brand you choose is up to you. Just make sure that you buy from a trusted shop so that you can be assured of the quality.
