It seems to be ridiculous that saying Champagne is a type of wine, because in the mind of many consumers, Champagne does not belong to the wine category. The bright and elegant bubbles make it a symbol of celebration, and in Asia, women prefer Champagne because it represents delicacy. However, although Champagne has unique characteristics, it is still categorized as a kind of wine which mainly made from three grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier.
Vintage champagne proves that champagne is able to age very well. Like time allows human to accumulate wisdom, Champagne gets a more complex and delicate flavour as time goes by. The magnum (1.5 liter) is the ideal bottle for Champagne because it impresses friends with the big volume and enables Champagne to stay young and fresh.
The terroir of Champagne is relatively unknown, like Aube where many talented winegrowers work. Today, those people offer wine lovers delicious bottles as well as great brands. Moreover, the most famous brands of champagne start to focus on grape varieties which were not considered as important ones before, especially Pinot Noir.
Internationally recognized brands such as Taittinger, Moët & Chandon, Dom Perignon, Louis Roederer … are showing the power and influence of Champagne.
Champagne remains a symbol of social status, which is demonstrated by ‘Coffrets’. Decoration is as important as the wine. Other than having a great quality, the appearance also makes a difference for premium Champagne. By the means of designing fashionable and beautiful bottles, Champagne succeeds in valuing more than a normal wine. It represents a type of lifestyle and the vibrant bubbles connect the world with the sense of joy.
