Champagne

WINE ages with times like mankind.

CHAMPAGNE
She is funny. She is easy-going.
She is a party animal,
and never put you in a distance.

Opportunities are always open.
Bubbles would blow up your mind,
and drive you like adrenaline.

It is a kind of easy come and easy go.
However, she would definitely be your joy of the night.

Unforgettable!

Champagne
Unlike most of the other French wines, there is only one appellation of champagne, "Champagne". Anything labelled "Champagne" is produced in the Champagne region and conforms to the appellation standard.

There are just three grapes used to make Champagne (though there are tiny quantities of a few other obscure grape varieties planted and legally included), they are Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. The first two are black grapes, the latter is white.

Cava
Spanish sparkling wine is known as Cava. It is produced in the same way as champagne. It uses a blend of Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo (i.e. white grapes). But, Chardonnay is now also permitted, too.



~~~~~~~~~~

Prosecco
Prosecco is a variety of white grape grown in the Veneto region of Italy. It also gives its name to the sparkling wine made from the grape.



The name "Prosecco" is now protected under European law and can be used only for the wine made from the Prosecco grape in the Conegliano/Valdobbiadene region. The Italian Prosecco should not be confused with Dalmatian Prosecco, which is a special sweet wine (similar to sherry), made out of dried grapes.

Sekt is the German term for sparkling wine
