Champagne

Were you aware that one shouldn’t strictly talk of a ‘bottle’ of champagne, but rather of a ‘flacon’ (as in a flacon of perfume)? That’s doubtless to underline its precious, even rare, character. Champagne is a symbol of France. Unique in the world, it was quickly protected by a legal arsenal to guarantee its authenticity. Champagne has no real competitor. While the savoir-faire used in making it is imitated in several places, even within France itself, the distinctive characteristics of its terroir (hills with calcareous earth and wooded at their high points) and its hard climate all combine to make it absolutely inimitable. A French law passed in 1927 delineated the champagne vineyards into 4 large zones: the Montagne of Reims, the Marne Valley, the Côte des Blancs and the Côte des Bar. You will discover the secrets of Champagne and become a real connoisseur by reading these few pages. To really appreciate champagne and pay it the attention it merits, you will be best prepared if you know something of its history and its production. Did you, for example, know that you should never wash a champagne flute in a dish-washer? Thanks to our page on ‘Drinking champagne’, you will be able to avoid some faux-pas and enable your guests better to appreciate this marvellous wine.
