Pinot noir

Red wine grape variety

Pinot noir is a type of red wine grape that belongs to the Vitis vinifera genus. It’s also probable that the name refers to wines produced mainly from Pinot noir grapes. The name comes from the words “pine” and “black” in French. The name pine refers to the grape variety’s tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped fruit bunches.

Champagne

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.
