Champagne and sparkling wine

Bubbles for every occasion

Companion to every festive occasion, these wines are characterised by the presence—sometimes faint, sometimes substantial—of carbon dioxide. Semi-sparkling wines have a slight effervescence, while the sparkling variety and Champagnes have an abundance.

 

Immersing oneself in the world of bubbly wines requires first an understanding of the different ways these wines are made (and the impact they have on the final product’s taste), deciphering the statements on the labels, and knowing the right way to serve them.
