What is the difference between Champagne & Sparkling Wine?

Champagne can only be made from grapes grown in the 33,000 hectares of vineyard within the defined appellation (region). All other sparkling wines are just that - sparkling wines. They can also have their own specific names such as Cava (Spain), Prosecco (Italy).

Most Champagne is a blend of the three main grape varieties planted in the region it is exclusively named after – Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. The five main production regions in Champagne are all strongly associated with one of these: the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Bar with Pinot Noir; Chardonnay in the Côte des Blancs and Côte de Sézanne and in the frost-prone Vallée de la Marne – the hardier Pinot Meunier.

For the major houses, this blend of grape varieties is soured from a range of different terroirs across the appellation, which stretches more than 90 miles from north to south.

How is Champagne made?

Champagne can only be made from grapes grown in the 33,000 hectares of vineyard within the defined appellation. Once picked, the grapes are pressed and the juice undergoes a first fermentation, usually in giant stainless-steel tanks (although it can be done in oak casks, too). The resulting base wines are then blended together. At this stage, the product is a thin, rather acid, table wine. Not something you would really choose to drink.

To produce the second fermentation – which puts the dissolved carbon dioxide into the wine to produce the fizz – a mixture of yeast, yeast nutrients and sugar (called liqueur d’expédition) is added and this liquid is bottled under a crown cap. Once the second fermentation is complete, the bottles are transferred to pallets for remuage, a process in which the bottles are slowly turned and shaken to loosen the now dead yeast cells, which gradually collect in the neck of the inverted bottle.

The bottles are then topped up with Champagne and the liqueur d’expédition added – the amount of sugar this contains will depend on the style or sweetness of Champagne required – and the cork is rammed in.
