The Best Champagnes To Choose For Your Special Occasions
Talking about things like champagne, the most of time, consumers buy the same products they know are good. Choosing a bottle of champagne is never simple to the amateur who wants to have a party or to make a surprise without having any special knowledge about the wines or the techniques of manufacture. This buying guide allows you to familiarize yourself with the words of champagne, which are not necessarily the same as for wine, and to make an informed choice according to your tastes, your accompaniments and of course according to the price.
First of all, we need to mention that Champagne is actually a region in the northern France, and only bottles produced in this region are called champagne. In other words, this sublime wine is produced on 35,000 hectares around Reims, Epernay, Château-Thierry and Bar-sur-Aube. Production limits have been set since 1927 on 324 wine villages known as “raw”. And that’s all. The rest is a pale imitation which does not deserve the appellation champagne. Even if, in certain large areas, they are offered under the same name.
Here are some suggestions about what champagne you may choose when you’re in doubt.
