Champagne - Enjoy Good Times

Oct 20, 2007
By tradition, Champagne has always been a way to celebrate achievements or toast the bride and groom on their marriage. Champagne is considered to be a mellow beverage. Champagne can be served with a meal or with dessert.

For many years, this exotic drink has been used as a way of celebration or to enjoy the good times that lie ahead. You probably want to know if champagne is a wine or a category all on its own.

Champagne is a form of wine, and it is made with wine grapes. The most commonly used wine grapes are Pinot Noir, Pinot Muenier, Chardonay and sometimes a combination of other wine grapes.

Noir and Meunier are black grapes, while the well known Chardonnay is a type of white grape. The label on the bottle will indicate what type of Champagne you are buying, so you'll know what flavor to expect.

What sets champagne apart from its contemporary still wines is the second fermentation process that it undergoes to get the bubbles. If it was not made in the Champagne region of France, then no matter how close in taste you get to a real champagne, it will still be considered a sparkling wine.

Most people prefer Champagne because of the bubbles that are known to spew forth once a bottle has been uncorked. The bubbles that erupt from this wine are the result of tiny drops of liquid that are disturbed by the carbonic acid gas. This is a normal reaction of the double fermentation process. Extra Brut is the driest champagne, and Demi-sec is the sweetest.

The next time you have a ceremony and need something to make the celebration a bit more interesting, you should grab a bottle of Champagne. Few things praise a celebration like the bursting bubbles of a fine bottle.

Below are some premium champagnes that are considered to be the very best amongst the entire lot. These, I have to say, is worth every penny and for the most part are used traditionally for celebrations.
