Champagne is a sparkling wine from France. While the word Champagne can be used to refer to any sparkling wine, it is illegal in the EU and some countries to label any product Champagne unless it comes from the Champagne wine region of France and is made according to the appellation’s regulations. This alcoholic beverage is made from particular grape varieties grown in the Champagne region, according to rules that include, among other things, specific vineyard practices, grape sourcing exclusively from specified locations within the Champagne region, specific grape-pressing methods, and secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to cause carbonation.Link to here...
Wines Related To Champagne
Wine making grape
Pinot Meunier, also known as Meunier or Schwarzriesling, is a black wine grape variety best known for being one of the three main varieties used in the manufacture of Champagne. Until recently, Champagne producers largely ignored Pinot Meunier, choosing to focus on the use of other noble varieties, but Pinot Meunier is now gaining popularity for the body and richness it adds to Champagne. Pinot Meunier accounts for about one-third of all Champagne grapes planted. It’s a chimeric Pinot mutation in which the inner cell layers are made up of a Pinot genotype that’s identical to Pinot noir or Pinot gris, but the outer, epidermal, layer is made up of a mutant, distinct genotype. The name Pinot Meunier comes from the flour-like dusty white down on the underside of its leaves, which was first mentioned in the 16th century.Link to here... | Derived from 'Pinot Meunier' on Wikipedia
