Champagne

Champagne wines

Champagne’s marginal vine growing climate of cold winters and warm summers means that non-vintage blends form the mainstay of production – as grapes from one harvest rarely make a good wine in their own right, although exceptional years are sold as vintages.

This phenomenon of blending grapes from different vintages has resulted in the development of individual house styles (Champagne producers are known as houses) – and so it is brand and consistency, rather than any other factor that is of paramount importance when buying Champagne. The majority of growers sell their grapes or wine to larger houses.

Champagne is made using the ‘Champagne method’ (methode champenoise), which involves secondary fermentation in the bottle. Rosé Champagne may be made using grape skin contact or (and unlike any other French region) by adding a small amount of red wine to the blend.
