Champagne and sparkling wines are notoriously associated with special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, and holidays. But how do you know you are getting a quality product? Which style should you buy for your specific event? There are several things that you should take into consideration before you make your purchase.
True champagne is only grown, fermented, and bottled in Champagne, France. In fact, the only bottles that may be labeled as “Champagne'' must be located within 100 miles of the region. Also, only specific types of grapes, located in the French region may be used to produce Champagne. The most-commonly used grapes are Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. The assembling of Champagne is the art of creating a wine that is superior to base wines. This assembly is created by mixing clear wines made from a variety of grapes grown from differing soils in France, having multiple aromatic qualities, and how long the Champagne is aged. It’s important to read labels to ensure you are getting a truly excellent champagne. In this article we will discuss the different styles of Champagnes and sparkling wines that you can purchase from Club Jeroboam and the various ways they can be served.
