Champagne & Sparkling Wine

The best Champagnes and sparkling wines, imported to Lowertown!

champagne-bottleChampagne is a sparkling wine produced from grapes grown in the Champagne region of France following rules that demand, among other things, secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to create carbonation, specific vineyard practices, sourcing of grapes exclusively from specific parcels in the Champagne appellation, and specific pressing regimes unique to the region. Some use the term Champagne as a generic term for sparkling wine, but in most countries it is illegal to officially label any product Champagne unless it both comes from the Champagne region and is produced under the rules of the appellation. (Adapted from Wikipedia).

Sparkling wine is a wine with significant levels of carbon dioxide in it, making it fizzy. The carbon dioxide may result from natural fermentation, either in a bottle, as with the traditional method, in a large tank designed to withstand the pressures involved (as in the Charmat process), or as a result of carbon dioxide injection. Sparkling wine is usually white or rosé but there are many examples of red sparkling wines such as Italian Brachetto, Australian sparkling Shiraz and Azerbaijani “Pearl of Azerbaijan” made from Madrasa grape. The sweetness of sparkling wine can range from very dry “brut” styles to sweeter “doux” varieties. (Adapted from Wikipedia)
